Former Home and Away star Sophie Dillman hits back at intrusive fan question

Former Home and Away star Sophie Dillman had the perfect response to a fan's intrusive question.

Dillman played Ziggy Astoni on the soap for six years, before exiting with her partner Patrick O'Connor, who played her on-screen boyfriend Dean Thompson.

Since then, Dillman and O'Connor have been living and travelling in Europe, making everyone jealous as they share their sun-kissed snaps online.

In a recent Instagram post captioned "Si Señor", O'Connor shared a selection of beautiful pictures from their trip to Spain.

While fans flocked to comment on the pictures, one follower queried how the couple were able to travel so often. "How are you two funding this perpetual travel," they asked, bluntly.

Despite the unexpected question, Dillman's quick response received over 900 likes after she jokingly attributed it to "feet pics".

When another fan asked where they could get those feet pictures, Dillman replied "private sale only. £100 ;)".

The Home and Away star seemed to see the funny side, but followers were not impressed with the question. One wrote: "good one best answer ever 😂 how dare someone ask a personal question like that! Keep traveling and enjoying life."

Others praised her response, saying: "brilliant answer lol have fab time travelling 😀 x"

"Best reply, people are so nosey," added a third.

Though it may seem like Dillman is always on holiday, she recently landed a role in a production of Breakfast with Jonny Wilkinson with Wanstead Theatre Company, after swapping Summer Bay for the stage.
