The actress, who now appears on the Kate, Tim & Joel show on NOVA, has discussed her fondness for the long-running series in recent months.     

In an interview with WHO Magazine, Kate, who is best known for her iconic role as Sally Fletcher on the Aussie soap, hinted she may return to Summer Bay. 

The actress reflected on her time on the popular Channel 7 show, and said she will always be attached to Sally.

‘I will always feel attached to Home and Away,’ she told the publication. 

‘How could I not? It trained and nurtured me. It offered me some of the most wonderful years of my life and, for a long time, defined who I was.’

The NOVA FM star added that she is often nostalgic about the memories she experienced on-set.

‘Even now, with some distance from those days and having had the chance to develop into my own person without the security blanket of Sally, I still miss it  desperately,’ she said. 

However, at the time, Kate, who appeared on the show between 1988 and 2013, denied chatter that she might return to the show any time soon.  

‘But I also realise I’ll never be able to recreate that time, nor do I need to,’ she added.
