As she prepares to return to Neighbours for the last episode, Jodi Gordon has voiced her enthusiasm.
The actress, 37, told the Herald Sun that she is ‘overjoyed’ to be reprising her role as Elly for the show’s final episode, which will air on August 1, 2022.
‘Elly has always had a special place in my heart, and I’m overjoyed that everyone, including myself, will have a befitting send-off for her and the show,’ she said.
‘It’s been a big part of my life, and I’ve enjoyed working with the entire cast and crew. I wish everyone the best of luck and happiness after Neighbours.’
Jodi and her investment banker boyfriend Sebastian Blackler recently settled their Apprehended Violence Orders in court after she reportedly attacked him with a wine bottle while inebriated on a Sunday morning.
Last month, neither the actress nor Sebastian, 31, appeared in Windsor Local Court for the hearing to finalise the orders.
His lawyer, Michael Bowe, has revealed exclusively to Daily Mail Australia that his client’s rocky affair with the 37-year-old Logie award winner is now finished.
Magistrate Leanne Robinson ordered the couple to follow two conditions for a period of two years, with the permission of both Ms Gordon and Mr Blackler’s counsel.
The two must not approach or contact one other without first consulting a lawyer, and they must not assault, threaten, harass, or interfere with each other.
This is Mr Blackler’s second AVO, which was issued after police were summoned to an altercation between the two and discovered Ms Gordon ‘highly affected by intoxicating liquor,’ according to court documents.
Police ‘suspect domestic attacks are occurring between the parties, with Gordon’s ingestion of intoxicating liquor increasing the aggression,’ according to court documents.
The AVOS against Ms Gordon and Mr Blackler, a portfolio manager at a Sydney wealth management firm, stem from an alleged incident on April 3 in far north-western Sydney.
According to the Daily Mail Australia, the couple would frequently go out of town – this weekend, 80 kilometres from Ms Gordon’s Double Bay residence – to avoid paparazzi photographers.
