AFTER much speculation in the soapie world, Isla Fisher has announced she will quit Home And Away.

Fisher, who is one of the Channel 7 soap's most popular actors, will be seen on air until the middle of the year.

The 21-year-old part-time novelist, who became famous last year for her performance at the Planet Hollywood opening party, declined to discuss her plans for the future and her exit from Summer Bay is being kept tightly under wraps.

Will she go out with a dramatic death like former cast-mate Dieter Brummer?

"I don't think gory is the right word to describe her departure, but it will be interesting," came the cryptic comment from a Home And Away insider.


SMALL screen siren Kimberley Davies is set to wed long-time partner, model and medical student Jason Harvey, her agent has confirmed.

The blonde beauty is in Los Angeles on the audition circuit, hoping to crack the American film and TV industry, and has not set a date for the nuptials.

"Kimberley is getting married but when she is getting married, where she is getting married and how she is getting married has not been decided," said a spokeswoman for her agent, Stacey Testro.


THE reality TV trend continues with Channel 9 considering another fly-on-the-wall-style series with the working title Action TV.

The series will comprise video footage of events such as crimes, car accidents, fires and natural disasters.

Action TV, which will hopefully have a better title by the time it hits the screen, joins Nine's other new infotainment offerings, Moment Of Truth, which will air later this year, and Good Medicine, which debuted this month to strong ratings.

Nine has also commissioned three new telemovies to be produced by A Country Practice creator James Davern. Titled The Hostages, Without Warning and Reprisal, they are in pre-production, with stars not yet announced.


A CURRENT Affair's Mike Munro has just returned from LA where he spent a day on the set of the staggeringly successful sitcom Friends, interviewing all six cast members. As a bonus, Munro met Jennifer Aniston's new best friend, an Australian red heeler puppy called Enzo.

We're not sure whether Munro told Aniston of his nickname back home - blue heeler.

This was bestowed upon him because of his aggressive story-chasing tactics.

The Friends exclusive is expected to air on ACA tomorrow, right before Friends, naturally.


BUSHIE and Broome local Malcolm Douglas is still wondering what to make of the Western Australian Tourism Commission after it approached him to appear in Elle Macpherson's controversial campaign to promote the West.

After he agreed to appear, the WATC told Douglas he was "too well-known" and would push Macpherson out of the spotlight, so they sent him on his way.

A bemused Douglas isn't shattered by missing Macpherson.

After all, he was frantically busy finishing his latest documentary, Kimberley Adventure, which goes to air on Seven this Saturday.
