Home and Away is about to lose a classic and fans are shook. 

The show must be an amazing set to work on, as a number of cast members have spent several years on Home and Away, including Kate Ritchie who departed in 2008 after 20 years playing Sally Fletcher.

And who could ever forget Ray Meagher (Alf Stewart) who entered the 2002 Guinness World Records as the longest-serving actors in an Australian drama series. 

Meagher along with Lynne McGranger (Irene Roberts), Ada Nicodemou (Leah Patterson-Baker) and Emily Symons (Marilyn Chambers) are the longest-serving cast members currently on Home and Away.

But one of these long-serving cast members is leaving the show "indefinitely".

Lynne McGranger, who plays the iconic Irene Roberts, has revealed her plans to step away from the soap.

Irene has entertained us all since 1993 but has now spoken to TV Week on her plans to leave H&A. 

"Irene needs to get away…. Summer Bay isn't holding anything for her anymore, so there's a chance she may never come back."

When will this moment come? According to reports, Irene reveals her big news to Ana Nicodemou's character Leah while they are at the diner having a business conversation.
