Home And Away is known for forging life-long friendships between cast members.

It’s always a delight to see some of our past favourites catching up long after they’ve left the show.

But the latest Summer Bay besties to have a reunion has sent us into a starry-eyed nostalgia spin, and has easily become our favourite gal pal pairing yet.

One of the country’s most successful exports, Isla Fisher, has been back in Australia recently and she’s taken the chance to spend some time with former co-star Kate Ritchie.

Taking to Instagram Kate shared a very cute selfie with Isla while praising the beautiful friend she is.

Nostalgia dream!


“Still making me giggle like a naughty teenager after all these years.. Thank you @islafisher you are one of the best.. ❤🎂❤,” she captioned the post.


The pair appear to be celebrating Isla’s birthday, with the star wearing the same print she’s seen donning in her own post about the milestone.

“45th Birthday today,” Isla captioned a series of snaps posted yesterday alongside her famous hubby Sacha Baron Cohen.

Kate played Sally Fletcher in Home And Away for an amazing 20 years, joining the iconic show in 1988 when she was just eight.

Meanwhile, Isla played Shannon Reed on the show from 1994 to 1997.

Just teens when they became co-stars it’s no wonder Kate and Isla revert to the adolescent joy upon reuniting.

In celebration of the show’s 30th anniversary back in 2018 Kate shared a series of throwback photos to her time in Summer Bay including a shot with Isla and Tempany Deckert who played Selina on the show.

She captioned the picture “the best days” with Isla cheekily commenting: “Best threesome I ever had.”

Speaking to TV WEEK about her iconic role as Sally Fletcher, which she departed in 2008, Kate revealed the show would always be special to her.

“I can’t speak on behalf of other people but for me I will always feel attached to Home and Away. 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.”
