The exodus from Ramsay Street begins with Roxy (Zima Anderson) and Kyle (Chris Milligan) as they leave to start their family ahead of Neighbours.
We’re not prepared for these farewells. Given what lies ahead in the coming months, with the conclusion in August, this will undoubtedly be the first of many. Who’s the onion-cutter in here?!
Roxy and Kyle have been offered a house by her mother Gemma, and they are virtually biting off her hand. They require a fresh start after the lows of the previous year.
They find out they’re pregnant shortly after agreeing to move, which is especially surprising given that they were informed there would be no kid. Even more reason to try a completely new life! Sheila (Colette Mann) is adamantly opposed to the scheme, but despite her best efforts to sabotage it, she is eventually silenced.
The couple is getting ready to depart Erinsborough, buoyed by the excellent news about Roxy’s pregnancy. Those around them are heartbroken, but the couple can’t leave Ramsay Street without a proper send-off. Their loved ones gather to ensure that their farewell is as heartfelt as possible. As the couple basks in the adoration of people around them, they reveal the next piece of information: they’re expecting a child of their own.
And off they go, with a bun in the oven and a brand-new family home, to their new life in Darwin. Goodbye, Koxy.
Scenes will begin airing on Channel 5 on Monday, April 11th.
