Daytime TV’s usually guaranteed to be family friendly.
But key members of cast are photographed filming shocking scenes on location on Sydney’s Palm Beach.
An argument between characters Martin ‘Ash’ Ashford and John Palmer escalates into a full-blown feigned fistfight, with Palmer, played by Shane Withington, pushed back into a pillar.
Shane’s on-screen wife Marilyn Chambers, played by Emily Symons, is seen racing to his defence as ‘Ash’ (actor George Mason) grabs his co-star’s shirt.
However, the tension created by the thespians of course ends immediately at the end of filming, with the cast and crew enjoying a laugh together.
