The Bold and the Beautiful (B&B) spoilers reveal that one daytime drama star is about to soap hop. After Soap Opera Digest released a blind item on this topic, many fans suspected that Courtney Hope (Sally) might be on her way over to The Young and the Restless. Unfortunately, Hope eventually shot down the buzz during a Facebook live chat.
That once again left viewers wondering who would swap soaps. Based on the latest info, it looks like the mystery’s finally been solved. Ashleigh Brewer (Ivy) recently made the decision to leave The Bold and the Beautiful, but she’s returning to her soapy roots in the land down under. Brewer has scored a new gig on Australia’s Home and Away.
You might recall that Brewer once played Kate on Neighbours, another Australian soap. That role lasted from 2009-2014 and ultimately led to her spot on B&B. Now that Brewer has left The Bold and the Beautiful behind, she’s gearing up for her exciting role on Home and Away. Brewer offered some interesting tidbits in an interview with Digital Spy.
It turns out Brewer signed a six-month contract, so she’ll have to stick around Palm Beach for filming. However, Brewer intends to return to Los Angeles when her arc wraps up. She said, “My home and my life is in LA, so I’m definitely going back…my house is there, my boyfriend is there, my dog is there, my whole life is there.”
Nevertheless, Brewer is pleased that she was able to sign on for a substantial stint. She suggested that it was exactly what she was looking for. “It is long-term, but at the same time, in terms of a soap contract it’s very short,” Brewer said. “Six months for me is perfect, because you go into the show very clear over what the arc will be. To me this is the perfect amount of time.”
Of course, you might be curious about what kind of character Brewer will play. She wouldn’t divulge all the juicy details, but she did have a few hints to pass along. “I’m not allowed to give too much away just yet, but we know that her name is Chelsea and she’s a police officer,” Brewer said. “She’s come to the Bay to give one of our favourites a real shock…”
This is great news for Brewer and her fans! The Bold and the Beautiful spoilers say we’ll just have to survive without Ivy on B&B, but at least Home and Away viewers are in for a treat. We’ll give you updates as other info emerges. Stick with the CBS soap and don’t forget to check CDL often for the latest Bold and the Beautiful spoilers, updates and news.
