Why Britney Spears was forced to cancel Home and Away role that almost happened


Britney Spears (yes, shocked to be typing that too) is best known for being a singer-songwriter and all round pop queen – but did you know she very nearly appeared in Australian soap Home and Away?

Britney has established herself in the music industry with hits like Hit Me Baby One More Time and Gimme More, but she almost pursued a career in acting instead.

It turns out that back in 2001, when the celebrity was living in Australia, Britney showed interest in appearing on the programme, but something prevented her wish from coming true.

Britney Spears wants to come on Home and Away; does anyone object?, our producer called a cast meeting, Christie, who portrayed Kirsty Sutherland, revealed on the Hobart’s Hit radio show with Dan and Christie.

Enter: Ray Meagher.

‘There was one person who was like, “oh…probably not a great idea”’, Christie explained.

‘That was Ray. He knew it would ruin the illusion of the show.’

Yeah, we don’t know what he means either.

Ray Meagher is best known, of course, for playing Alf Stewart in the Oz soap.

While Ray is a bit of a legend, we quite frankly think it’s Toxic that Britney never appeared in the show.

Oops, she didn’t do it again.
