And then there was one: Deborah Mailman with cast members Spencer McLaren, Claudia Karvan, Sibylla Budd and Samuel Johnson.

The secret life of… who?

The Secret Life Of Us, which goes back into production in Melbourne in November, will be almost unrecognisable when it eventually gets to air next year, reports from down south suggest.

Five new roles are being cast for the fourth series, with only Deborah Mailman, David Tredinnick and Michael Dorman expected to return.

Samuel Johnson will be back but is tipped to leave early in the series. Those believed to be leaving the Generation X favourite include Sibylla Budd, Spencer McLaren, Dan Spielman, Nina Liu and Gigi Edgley.

The cast changes are part of an overhaul that involves a new producer, Ross Allsop, script producer, Liz Packett, and writing team including Ellie Beaumont, Michael Miller, Tony McNamara and Adam Todd.
