By Marni Dixit November 13, 2017

After almost two decades, Lynne McGranger has announced her departure from Home and Away.

Lynne McGranger has announced she's going to leave Home and Away! The star, who has been on the show for almost two decades, revealed to TV Week she would be leaving Summer Bay for a little while to take on another role.

The star said "getting bored easily" was the reason behind her departure: 

“I'm one of those people who needs a bit of a change-up and something different.”

Lynne won't be gone for that long, assuring fans she'd return once her next project finished up.

"I'm off to York to play the wicked fairy in Beauty And The Beast. I'm really looking forward to it."

The actress will be performing in 12 shows a week and only has nine days to prepare for the show, she added that the role was "physically demanding". Having said that, however, she's previously told York Press she sees it as a holiday:

"The UK panto experience is always exciting - even though I am working hard and doing two shows a day, it's also like a holiday."

"I love being somewhere new, meeting people and making new friends."
