‘NOT CANCEL. This year has been incredibly difficult for us because we haven’t seen each other since 22nd January.
‘294 Days or 7,055+hrs, which is 423,400+ minutes since I have held her hand, brushed the hair back over her ear, looked into her eyes, made her coffee, picked her up and hugged her, slapped her butt…’
After listing a string of activities he hadn’t been able to do with Raychel this year, he added: ‘Raychel is the most amazing, kind, funny, thoughtful, caring, selfless, generous, understanding Woman I have ever met in my Life.

‘She was actually supposed to be moving over here around now so she obviously hasn’t been able to get over yet or even to come to set and watch,’ he told The Daily Telegraph in August.
‘We were planning that with each production break over the year I would fly over there with an empty suitcase and just pack a T-shirt and start bringing her stuff back and forth,’ he told the publication.
Luke returned to Home and Away in August, almost a decade after leaving the show in June 2011.
