There's nothing like a good old fashioned birthday knees up - but in the world of Australia's beloved soap actors, social media will suffice.
Stars of the country's favourite drama series Home and Away have taken to Instagram to pen tributes to one of the show's loyal stalwarts, James Stewart, who celebrated his birthday on Wednesday.
It all started with Penny McNamee, who plays James' on-screen sister Tori.
Sharing a sweet snap of the pair on her Instagram grid, Penny wrote: "Happy Birthday to my brother from another mother, @jamesstewart"
She continued: "Jimbo - you make my time at work so joy-filled. Thank you for your beautiful friendship, solid advice, constant support and ALL THE LAUGHS!! In the hallowed halls of Summer Bay, you have and always will be "my person". Xxx."

A number of Penny's fans also took to her post to wish James a happy day.
"Happy Birthday Jimmy a great photo of you both. Love you guys," one wrote.
Another added: "The cutest on set siblings."

Penny has been candid about her special friendship with James, previously sharing another insight into their unique co-working dynamic.
Earlier this year, she wrote on Instagram: "3 reasons why Jimmy is my favourite scene partner: He sings show tunes with me, he can quote any romantic comedy, he's got my coffee order on speed dial. I mean, what else is there?"

And of course, we weren't surprised to see James' wife and co-star Sarah Stewart post her own sweet tribute to her husband.
"The most potent creature I know, my forever lover, happy birthday husband," Sarah wrote alongside a beautiful snap of the pair over candlelight.
Yep, we'd be feeling the love too if we were James today.
Happy birthday to Summer Bay's resident legend!
