As far as the Aussie soaps, Home And Away and neighbours are concerned, two exhibits have stood the test of time and become icons of our displays.And, every so often, we are rewarded with a crossover when a memorable star from one show jumps to the other.
With Jodi Gordon, Guy Pearce, Andrew Morley, Bernard Curry, and so many more, we have seen this.Now, with an exciting new Ramsay Street gig, Josh Barrett, alias Jackson Gallagher, the troublesome heartthrob of Home And Away, is following suit.

Josh was convicted of murder and given a sentence of 20 years.
Josh and Andy tried to escape dramatically in an escaped car from the court, but they were found to have been taken to gaol. “Jackson posted in May of the last year a cheeky picture of his brother in Summer Bay, Tai Hara, who subtitled the snap:” Rule No.1 while on course .. Do not shave at all
And a few months ago another wrote, “Still going …
Perhaps we’ll see a return after all that running.
