Sally to leave 'Home and Away'
There are few constants in life, but Sally Fletcher in Home and Away has been one of them - a character on our screens for close to 20 years now in a show that replaces cast members like normal people change socks. Ranking along the likes of the Duckworths and J.R. Ewing, Sally is up there in the instantly recognisable character hall of fame. This is true no matter how much you have fallen out of touch with the soap or have become too cool to admit to its charm! Kate Ritchie is a major celebrity in Australia, as are the entire cast of 'Home and Away', plasterd across the front of magazines a plenty when I was there last year and so too the soap built to a huge cliffhanger in which Sally was stabbed at the Christmas break as we were leaving (surely some reader knows what I am talking about?!). Anyway, today brings the sad news of Ritchies departure, the end of an era and speculation as to how her character will leave. RTE covers the story here. In other news the Comptroller and Auditor released his Annual Report for 2006 today.
