In the New Year, British fans will see the actress's alter ego Kate Ramsay acting on her growing feelings for single dad Declan (James Sorensen), who lost his wife Bridget (Eloise Mignon) in a car accident. The scenes have already been broadcast in Australia.
Discussing whether the love twist could prove controversial among viewers, Brewer told PA: "I think they'll be okay with it... I think they'll be accepting. It's done very tastefully and very slowly. The two characters don't rush anything."
She continued: "I love it. James Sorensen is just amazing, and he and I are very close friends. The fact we knew we'd be working together a lot worked in our favour. It's lots of fun."
Sorensen has also backed the storyline, arguing that Declan needs to "move on and live his life" rather than mourning for Bridget forever.
