Jacqui Purvis, who plays Felicity Newman in Home and Away, has shared details on her character's latest plot, declaring she is "excited" to see it unfold on screen.

Felicity has been instrumental in helping Mackenzie Booth manage her salt business since she became into serious financial difficulties, as shown by fans of the show.

Purvis discussed her character's new venture with Digital Spy.

"It will be a bit rocky at the start, but I think it will be a very cool dynamic in the long run," she said.

"It's going to be a bit rough at the beginning, because Salt is Macs' baby and has been for a long time, to have a sudden change and now have to make decisions with someone else and not making them on your own."

Despite initial teething difficulties between the characters, the star said she believes the venture will blossom into a "exciting" partnership between the characters.

"I think what makes Mac and Felicity fun is the difference. Mac is the brains, the statistics, and the facts behind Salt," she said, whereas Felicity is a bit more of the passion, energy, and the fun.

Purvis praised the narrative, stating that it's important to portray two strong women supporting one another.

"It was something that Emily [Weir] and I really thought about because for so long, history has shown women to be always against one another. Whether it be a relationship, jealousy, or trying to steal each other's men, it's all about experience.

"It's so exciting and empowerment to witness two strong women running a business, completely on the same page and working together. Two women who you're truly supportive of and want to advance in the game."
