After nearly 20 years on Home and Away, Lynne McGranger is hanging up her hat as Irene Roberts on the popular soap.
But don't worry it's only temporary.
The 64-year-old revealed to TV Week she needed "a change-up" and to spice things up a little bit.
Lynne will be swapping her thongs for her boots and gloves as she is set to head to the UK for her short break from Summer Bay.

"I'm off to York to play the wicked fairy in Beauty and the Beast," she revealed to the magazine. "I'm really looking forward to it."
It isn't exactly going to be a relaxing break for Lynne though as she has a gruelling schedule for her time in York.
She only has nine days to rehearse the "physically demanding" role and will be performing 12 shows a week.
It seems her pantomime overseas adventure is becoming a tradition.
Last year the actress starred in Snow White and the year before she starred in Cinderella.
