How we kept our Summer Bay bodies!

Home And Away icons Nicolle Dickson, Rebekah Elmaloglou and Debra Lawrance left Summer Bay many years ago but, incredibly, they all look even better today.

It is like time has almost stood still for former Home And Away stars Nicolle Dickson, Rebekah Elmaloglou and Debra Lawrance since they shot to stardom both here and around the world in the iconic Aussie soap 23 years ago.

“It really does feel like not a day has gone by,” laughs Nicolle, who played Bobby Simpson, perhaps one of the best loved of the long list of characters who have made Summer Bay part of the Aussie TV landscape for the past 25 years. Despite having had children and experiencing the highs and lows of life in the two decades since they left the show, this sparkling trio look just as good as they did back then. And Summer Bay still lingers in their lives.

“I still watch Home And Away every night,” confesses Nicolle, before revealing that she couldn’t ever bear to watch her own performance. “I’d be cringing if I saw myself on the TV,” she admits. Nicolle still gets recognised and asked for autographs. “Last weekend I went to see Legally Blonde [the musical] and a middle-aged lady approached me and said, ‘I told my husband it was you – can we have a photo?’”

But Debra can claim the ultimate fan experience. When she met the Princess of Wales at the Victor Chang Ball during Diana’s last Australian visit in 1996, the princess recognised Debra as Summer Bay’s Pippa and confided that she watched Home And Away. It left Debra speechless.
