Home and Away stars Sophie Dillman and Patrick O'Connor have shared photos of themselves enjoying each other's company on Instagram.

The real-life couple, who play Ziggy Astoni and Dean Thompson respectively on the Summer Bay soap, posted pictures of their time on the beach and in the sea away from the set, to the delight of their fans.

Patrick posted one photo showing a view of the sea with Sophie looking on, adding the caption: "My two favourite things."

Meanwhile, Sophie shared a couple of pictures of her own. The first showed the couple floating in the sea, with the second capturing the exact moment they were hit by a wave as Sophie crashed into Patrick.

"Today was swell," she wrote.

As a bonus, Patrick's Instagram had video footage of that moment, along with the caption: "The tuck & roll."

Things couldn't be more different for their on-screen characters, as UK viewers recently saw Ziggy and Dean split. The break-up happened after Ziggy heard the truth from Dean about Ross Nixon's murder.

"I was really shocked, but then I thought about it for a few more minutes and thought, 'Well, we live in Summer Bay!'," Sophie recently told Digital Spy.

"I don't think Ziggy and Dean's fans will react well, honestly! But everything happens for a reason, so it will be okay!"
