“I’m literally going to miss you when you play Bella,” added one fan. “Thank you for playing with her and bringing her to life. Good luck with your next chapter.’

Courtney’s character, a dedicated photographer, bids farewell to Summer Bay after being offered a job in New York.

Her departure from Home and Away comes a month after her on- and off-screen boyfriend Lukas Radovich also left the show after five years.

‘What an incredible ride. I can’t really express how the past 5 years have felt or affected my life, so I’ll keep it short. I will miss the work, but the most important thing is that I will miss the people,” Lukas wrote in May.

“A special mention to @tony_gardiner for directing my last block with empathy. And thanks to the FANS OF THE SHOW who made the experience unforgettable.

“The fact that my parents and @liamforcadilla appear as extras in my latest episodes also fills my heart. Until next time – catch you on the flip side.’

Lukas, 27, played the part of Ryder Jackson and first appeared in 2017.

At the time of his final episode, Courtney wrote a touching tribute to Lukas to commemorate their on-screen journey together.

‘Lukie, may we always look at each other like that. Congratulations on the past five years,” she wrote.

‘I love you. We love you. They love you. Long live Ryder. ❤️❤️❤️,” she added.
