    Home and Away’s Sophie Dillman and Patrick O Connor are a couple both on the soap and in real life.

    When they're not playing out dramatic storylines, the glam pair enjoy exotic holidays in Europe and of course, hanging out in their stylish urban pad Down Under.

    Sophie plays Ziggy and Patrick plays Dean and their off-screen romance is just as powerful, it seems.

    The pair met at university so knew each other well before becoming romantically involved.

    On the hit Aussie show, Ziggy and Dean live in a farmhouse but the reality is a bit different.

    In real life, Sophie and Patrick ooze "young, professional couple" vibes and their home mirrors that with its modern decor and stylish interior.

    The actors spent all lockdown living together but the loved-up couple recently denied they are engaged. Yet.

    Sophie said: "There are so many comments on our photos that suggest I was hiding my left hand everywhere.

    "Even people at work thought we were engaged.

    “But I promise, the hand is bare and there is no engagement! Let's put this rumour to bed. Please."

    Back to where they live: Sophie and Patrick's home is colourful and full of personal knick-knacks. Sophie recently shared a saucy picture of her on her stripey duvet cover wearing just knickers and a grey hoodie.

    Their chic bathroom is pale marble and Patrick also posted a playful picture of him enjoying a bath. Meanwhile, Sophie gave a glimpse into their elegant dining room, complete with colourful flowers and understated art.

    Patrick is also pictured with their dog Winnie with a sign saying "pretty in pink" in the background.

    Sophie has previously opened up about how it is working with her real-life flame and she has described it as "really great".

    She told Yahoo: "I really admire his work ethic and some of his acting choices, and how he looks at his character and storylines. I've learnt a lot from him."

    When quizzed about if it makes kissing scenes "easier", Sophie said that kissing scenes will always be "strange" as they always have camera crew directing them.

    She went on to say that she has no plans to leave the iconic soap after five years there but ultimately it is up to producers who stays and who goes.

    Sophie added: "We’re privileged to have the opportunity to work as a character on Home and Away. It’s up to the writers and the producers, what they want from the character and what they want from the character.

    “I will work there as long as I absolutely can because I love everyone there."
