A sad day in Summer Bay

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012


I’m deeply saddened at the news that Colleen and her amazing gold quilted jacket are off to America. Of course, Lancey and Debbie magically want her now that she’s loaded. Although it sounds like Lance still has a grĂ¡ for Marilyn!

In true Summer Bay fashion, she’s leaving in two days. Quite the hasty departure.

Lottie wants to move in with her da. Dunno why. Her mother must be quite the wagon. Harvey put her off until after his case. He stupidly refused help from legal goddess Morag. Have a nice time in jail, Harve.

Hayley is still off the gear. She’s hooked on Rockstar now. Liam seemed happy enough to go along with her advances.

Who is Marilyn Chambers?

Wednesday, March 31st, 2010

Marilyn has returned to the bay after 10 years away in Blighty. But who is she and what makes her so popular in the Bay? Here is the lowdown for those fans who don’t remember her from the first time around.

  • She ran a beauty parlour out the back of the old diner and gave facials to Madge Wilkins et al.
  • Marilyn used to be Morag’s housekeeper. It provided some great comedy as they were the ultimate odd couple. It’ll be interesting to see how they get on the next time Morag turns up in the Bay.
  • Marilyn went out with Lance Smart, Colleen’s son. Colleen seems to bear a grudge about their break up.
  • Lance, Marilyn and Martin Dibble were in a band together that went national for a brief time. I can’t remember what they were called. Lance got jealous as the press insinuated that Marilyn was going out with Martin, not Lance. This caused the band to split up.
  • Donald “Flathead” Fisher married Marilyn in an unlikely liaison. They had a baby called Byron but he sadly passed away. His poor parents were distraught and Marilyn got depressed and fled to London. Irene and Flathead went to look for her. Their method of searching involved touring the city on an open top bus. Preposterous as this may sound, they managed to find her.

It’s good to have her back and I’m sure she’ll provide us with much hilarity. She seems to have ditched her habit of wearing tiny backpacks as handbags.
