As they rehearsed their heated discussion, Penny took off her jacket and held it in the crook of her arm, revealing her toned arms.

It was then time to film the scene, at which point she put her jacket back on. Later on, she and Ditch turned to their director for notes.

Ditch told Digital Spy in June he was thrilled to be part of the long-running drama.

‘Home and Away has been such an institution to audiences in both Australia and the UK for such a long time and it’s great to be a part of that now, but the people are what it’s all about,’ he said.

‘The cast and crew are brilliant and have made me feel at home immediately.’
