Home and Away star to join Married at First Sight Australia

 Home and Away actor Maddy Jevic, who starred as Amber Simmons on the show, is reportedly set to join this year’s Married at First Sight Australia.

Maddy Jevic starred as recurring guest character Amber from July 2020 until mid-2021.

She came after asking to work as a nurse for John (Shane Withington), and Marilyn (Emily Symons) gladly extended an offer to her after seeing how well her no-nonsense demeanor matched John's.

But as time went on, it became clear that she was Dean (Patrick O'Connor)'s former lover from when he lived in Mangrove River, and that she was concealing a serious secret: she had become pregnant about five years earlier, with Dean serving as the father!

She also had a grudge against Dean’s best friend Colby (Tim Franklin), and punched him in the face at the first opportunity

We later learnt that she was the sister of Jai, an old friend of Dean and Colby’s, who was killed in a car crash they were all involved in during their River Boy days.

I love my character, she’s fun to play,” Maddy told if.com.au at the time. “ Everyone on the show was so welcoming and warm.

Dean eventually met his son, named Jai (River Jarvis) after Amber’s brother, and fell head over heels for him.

After a rough period in the bay, Amber and Dean rekindled their old romantic spark, which caused Dean and Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) to part ways. Ziggy eventually found Tane (Ethan Browne).

But while Dean only wanted a family unit for his son, Amber wanted sparks and fireworks. It didn't take long for them to realize they weren't meant to be together.

Dean gave Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) the reassurance that, while they got along great, he genuinely liked Amber. But that's about it. After Dean told Amber he still loved Ziggy, Amber left Summer Bay with Jai, but not before telling Dean she didn't plan to keep him from seeing his kid.

“You will always be his dad, okay,” she reassured him. “We’ll work something out, I promise.”

Dean retained a relationship with Jai after Amber’s departure, and it was Amber’s later move to Queensland that saw Dean and Ziggy depart Summer Bay themselves last year.

When Amber called Dean, she informed him that she had already found a place to live and that she and Jai would shortly be moving to Queensland, which meant that Dean would find himself abruptly separated from his kid by thousands of miles.

Following Ziggy's suggestion, they decided to accompany Amber up to the northeastern state, and in March 2023 they moved out of Home and Away.

Maddy Jevic has already been confirmed as the star of Married at First Sight Australia's eleventh season, which premieres on Nine later this month. Although an air date has not yet been set, the show will also air on E4 in the UK.

On their wedding day, couples on the show first meet and are married in front of their friends and family, often with disastrous consequences.

As to Nine, "MAFS Season 11 will feature a new perspective on the show with one of the most varied groups of brides and grooms, a more age-diverse mix that includes our oldest participant ever, and a same-sex couple."

Maddy and her soon-to-be spouse are rumored to make their appearance on the show some weeks after the first round of couples are revealed, as "intruder" couples.

The couple's opulent Sydney apartment building, Skye Suites, is where Jevic is filming. Fans initially learned of the news when they spotted Jevic there.

Maddy's co-stars on MAFS, according to Pedestrian.tv, thought at first that she was a hired drama queen when she professed to be a psychic medium instead of acknowledging her acting job.

Married at First Sight Australia begins on Nine and NineNow on Monday 29th January, and is expected to air on E4 in the UK a few weeks later.

Home and Away returned to Australian screens on Monday 8th January on 7 and 7Plus.
