Home and Away 2017 fans have known that Billie Ashford is going to die. However, the cause of her death has been kept under wraps until now.
Billie (Tessa de Josselin) will be back in the hospital for a serious illness. In the upcoming episode of Australia’s long-running soap, Billie will be rushed to hospital in an ambulance after passing out following the blessing of her daughter.
The young mother has been suffering from a persistent cough before she collapsed and she also struggled breathing when she gave birth to her baby. Digital Spy wrote it seems like Billie’s health is deteriorating as the doctors run more tests on her.
Dr. Nate Cooper (Kyle Prior) will tell Billie’s family that they will need to do a bronchoscopy in order to have a better idea of what is going on. Digital Spy cited TV Week’s interview with Matt Little (VJ Patterson) where he said, “VJ has taken responsibility and provided support for Billie and the baby. But now reality sets in that she might die.”
Last year, photos of an apparent memorial for Billie leaked. The images showed Billie’s best friend Phoebe Nicholson (Isabella Giovinazzo) mourning at a makeshift memorial on the beach.
Home and Away 2017 Billie Ashford’s Story
De Josselin has been portraying the role since 2015. When Billie first arrived in Summer Bay, she developed an infatuation with Nate. However, she accused the doctor of assaulting her. She later admitted of framing Nate.
Billie had been in several tragedies. She had been accused of burning down Leah Patterson’s house despite helping to save three people and sustaining serious burns in the process.
Billie also suffered from depression when her brother Martin Ashford (George Mason) did not stand by her. She was designated to go to prison when Hunter King (Scott Lee) came forward and admitted that he was the one who burned down Leah’s house.
Last year, Billie was raped by Irene Roberts’ (Lynne McGranger) estranged son, Mick Jennings (Kristian Schmid). She got pregnant but she hid the real identity of the father of her unborn child.
She eventually admitted to her boyfriend, VJ, that he is not the father of her child. VJ stood by her despite knowing that the child wasn’t his.
Billie was also involved in a plane crash and road accident last year. Most recently, she went into labor in the middle of nowhere and finally, delivered a baby girl. In all of these, she survived.
