“This is us grabbing a delicious celebratory dinner at @theeuropeanmelbourne between Part One and Part Two of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in 2020 – our official (7th 😉) anniversary date. My gratitude knows no bounds.”

Debra, who played Pippa Ross on Home and Away from 1990 to 1998, was sent a slew of messages from fans congratulating her for the past 30 years of wedded bliss.

One wrote, “Love and hugs and congratulations to you both .. ❤️❤️,” and another shared, “Leap year Feb 29th wedding. How awesome 👌.”

The couple’s relationship blossomed after meeting on the set of Home and Away, when Dennis was cast as Michael Ross, Pippa’s second husband and in 2011 they told Woman’s Day how the soap changed their lives.

Home And Away gave me my life,” said Debra, who met Dennis when he first screen-tested for the role of Michael.

“If I didn’t have a steady job, I don’t think I would have had children. I met Dennis, we have two great children, and he’s a brilliant father.”

“I met Dennis at exactly the time my ovaries were yelling, ‘Hello!'” she told the publication.

“I must have smelled his testosterone. I flirted with him and there was chemistry, then I spent the next six weeks being rude to him. I guess I was testing him.”
