Chris Hemsworth rumoured to return to Home and Away as part of a reunion with former co-star Kate Ritchie

Hollywood superstar Chris Hemsworth may be heading for a reunion with one of his former Home and Away co-stars.

The 40-year-old hunk, who appeared in Seven’s long-running soap between 2004 and 2007, is rumoured to be ‘helping out’ Kate Ritchie make a return to Summer Bay.

The plan to bring the two back together was revealed this week on Nova’s Fitzy & Wippa with Kate Ritchie.

According to co-host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli. Kate needed an ‘audition partner’ before her return could be made ‘official’.

After announcing he had written a script, Wippa then teased to the veteran actress that he had organised a former Home and Away star to film scenes with her.

And on Friday, Wippa revealed that he had received a voicemail from the Hollywood star about Kate’s audition – which he then played back during the show with a decoder to hide the identity of the actor.

‘Look mate, I’ve read through that script you just sent and it’s insane,’ the actor said.

‘That stuff, that storyline, that’s a Bay bombshell. And I love it, and I love the idea of you guys, you know, just sort of getting into it.

The performer then asked for more time to ‘prepare’ for the role. 

‘So is there any chance you could just give me a little bit longer to perfect the character so I can, you know, do the scene justice?’ they continued.  

‘Because I think we’ve got something good on our hands here, and I’d love for it to go out properly. Call me back Wip.’

Kate then guessed that the voice belonged to her former co-star. 

‘I know who I think it sounds like. It’s a man with quite a deep, husky voice… He doesn’t work on Home and Away anymore. It’s not Chris Hemsworth, is it?’

Wippa attempted to dodge Kate’s probing: ‘I can’t answer your questions,’ he said and added: ‘It’s a big name. You’ll find out when the scene’s on.’

Kate rose to fame playing Sally on Home and Away between 1988 and 2008 and has often talked publicly about returning to Summer Bay.

Meanwhile, Chris took the role of Kim Hyde on Home and Away in 2004, having originally auditioned for the part of Robbie Hunter, which he lost out to Jason Smith.

After appearing in 171 episodes, Chris left the show in 2007. 

No official word of her rejoining the cast has been made by Seven or Home and Away producers. 

Recent rumours of Kate coming back to the Bay came last week when the star took part in an epic Home and Away reunion for her co-stars at Ray Meagher’s 80th birthday celebrations.

The actress took to her Instagram Stories to give an insight into the fun-filled celebrations, which came two weeks ahead of Ray’s big birthday on July 4.

Last month, Kate reunited with Chris after he arrived to her radio show to promote his new film Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga.

In the image, Kate was all smiles as she posed alongside Chris, 40, and actress Anya Taylor-Joy, 28.

‘Squad goals!! Catch our exclusive chat with Chris Hemsworth and Anya Taylor-Joy tomorrow from 6am!’ she wrote.
