Sam Frost, former reality TV star turned actress on Home and Away, has quit the soap after four years as Jasmine Delaney.

Frost faced intense backlash after sharing a video in October about her decision to not get vaccinated, including a call-out by fellow Bachelor alum Abbie Chatfield. It later emerged that Frost’s character on Home and Away would be temporarily written out of the show until she received her vaccinations, which she had finally agreed to get, but only after a planned medical procedure in January. Channel 7 had given all employees a deadline of early November to make a decision about their vaccination status.

At the time, Frost wrote on Instagram, “I’m not leaving Home & Away. I’ve got a medical procedure booked in for January. So I won’t be fully vaxxed until mid-late February. I will be written out temporarily. Jazzy is going on an off-screen adventure for a few weeks.. But I’ll be back ❤️ My bosses are amazing, we’ve been in open communication for months. Very grateful we were able to make a plan that works for everyone.”

That is obviously no longer the case, as Frost is now leaving the show for good. It is believed she wants to be closer to family and friends in Victoria.

Frost will film her final scenes at Sydney’s Eveleigh Studios on Friday. She first appeared on the show in 2017, and was nominated for a Logie Award for Most Popular New Talent in 2018. She first rose to fame as the winner of the second season of The Bachelor Australia in 2014, and starred as The Bachelorette the following year.
