Patrick O’Connor and Sophie Dillman from the hit Australian soap, Home and Away have been living it up on our little Island the past week and we can’t get enough of their wholesome content!

The pair, otherwise known as Dean Thompson and Ziggy Astoni play a loved-up couple on the show, and to make matters even cuter they’re in a relationship off-screen too.

Patrick, who has Irish roots took to Instagram to mark the start of their time in the Emerald Isle, posting pictures of himself drinking Guinness.

“I’ve made it home,” he captioned it.

The content didn’t stop there as Patrick and Sophie found themselves immersed in Irish culture sharing video clips of some timeless Celtic music.

Most recently, the pair were spotted in County Roscommon, where they stopped in the Fiddlers Elbow in Ballaghaderreen for some lunch.

Both Patrick and Sophie have starred in Home and Away since 2017, but it wasn’t until 2019 that they became a couple.

Despite their success over the years, the time has sadly come for the pair to say goodbye to the beloved show and very soon by the looks of it.

Taking to Instagram to confirm the news yesterday, Patrick wrote: “Our time in the bay is coming to a close, stay tuned next couple weeks.”

While Sophie shared a photo of herself and Patrick writing: “The sun is setting on Ziggy and Dean’s time in the bay! I’m still in denial about it all.”

We wish them all the best on their next adventure!
