'Home and Away' Rob Mammone confirms exit: 'I spoke up too often'

By
Home and Away star Rob Mammone has confirmed that he has left the soap.

Mammone - who plays Doctor Sid Walker on the Channel 7 serial - explained that he was written out of the show for "speaking up for the truth too often".

The actor has hinted that there were problems between him and writers in recent weeks, but this marks the first time he has been explicit about the issue.

In recent months, he has criticised the handling of Romeo's cancer storyline, revealing in one tweet that he had rewritten one of his own scenes.

In March, he posted: "@peacefulgal2010 thanks Sahara Luke and I re wrote most of it , as we felt , we needed to get it right .. Too important."

In April, he responded to a fan who criticised the storyline as "not realistic". He replied: "@Topper120488 yep we thought so too .. Sonetimes the writers get it wrong !!!"

It is thought that the above tweets came after the decision to write out his character, rather than being the cause of his exit.

Mammone first appeared in Home and Away back in 2009 and reprised the role a year later in 2010.
