    April teamed her Carla Zampatti frock with metallic strappy heels and styled her caramel locks into an elegant up-do, with several tendrils left out to frame her face.

    Her makeup was ultra glamorous, consisting of bold brows, winged eyeliner, false lashes and a glossy nude lip.

    The model beamed alongside co-star Tim, 35, who cut a dapper figure in a head-to-toe black ensemble, comprising of a dress shirt, pant and trench coat ensemble.

    Neighbours star Sharon, 33, who played Dipi Rebecchi from 2017 until March this year, commanded attention in a ruffled print thigh-skimming gown and blue heels.

    The brunette beauty added a touch of luxury in the form of a black quilted Bulgari handbag, and styled her tresses into a high plait with a statement fringe.

    Her makeup included lashings of mascara and defined cheekbones, and she shot a sultry gaze at the camera.

    Sharon made headlines in April when she released a statement about her ‘painful’ four years on Neighbours, which included racial slurs, mocking comments and a colleague calling her a ‘c**t’ after she confronted them over an offensive remark.  

    The actress said at the time: ‘The past week for me has been a traumatising, triggering and painful experience, with the resurfacing of compounded trauma I have tried to deny, bury, and ultimately, survive.’ 

    She went on to allege that on more than one occasion, a current cast member (not a person of colour) directly referred to her as ‘you people’, while speaking in derogatory terms about an altercation they were involved in with an Indian person.

    She claimed the same cast member repeatedly referred to her as ‘the black one’ and/or blackie’ behind her back while in the presence of crew members, and that the person claimed the show only employs Indian actors ‘to fill their diversity quota’. 

    Sharon said she communicated the comments to management, who were sympathetic and confronted the actor on one occasion to her knowledge – but the approach only caused her to become a target once again.  

    She also claimed a former cast member (not a person of colour) compared her to ‘a bobble-head toy’ accompanied by the comment, ‘Oh, it’s like you guys’ – referring to Indians.’
