Host Melissa Doyle surprises Ray with the iconic big red book on the set of Home and Away, before a night of laughs, tears, surprises and insights into a man who has touched the lives of so many across the years. Summer Bay colleagues past and present – including Chris Hemsworth, Ryan Kwanten, Julian McMahon, Georgie Parker, Stephen Peacocke, James Stewart, Ada Nicodemou, Emily Symons, Dannii Minogue, Bec Hewitt and Judy Nunn – reveal the incredible impact Ray has had. In a tearful reunion, Kate Ritchie describes how over her 20 years growing up on Home and Away, Ray became a true friend and helped shape her into the woman she is today. Ray is also reunited with Home and Away’s original Fletcher family – Roger Oakley, Vanessa Downing, Sharyn Hodgson and Alex Papps – while stage and screen alumni Belinda Giblin, Paula Duncan and John Waters reveal never-before-heard stories about their friend and colleague.   The nostalgia continues as This Is Your Life delves into Ray’s career in film and theatre, revealing how he got his first big break playing the rear end of a horse.
