Home and Away SPOILER: Kat Chapman DIES in car smash while on the run with fugitive boyfriend Robbo

Tragedy throws Summer Bay into mourning

Since Home and Away is aired in Australia before the UK, we have known for a while that Kat Chapman is going to be dramatically killed off.

But while these scenes were screened for Aussie fans as the season finale at Christmas, the wait is finally over for UK viewers as Kat's death hits next week.

With the revelation that Kat's boyfriend Robbo is actually none other than Beckett Reid, the hit man who was sent to Summer Bay to kill her, the police  constable's life has been turned upside down.

Using her job in the police to secretly release her man from jail, the pair are just about to go on the run together, when Martin 'Ash' Ashford catches them.

Stopping the pair in their tracks, Ash tells Kat she's not going anywhere, and considering he is the father of her baby, she thinks about it for a second.

But her love for Robbo wins and before Ash knows what is happening, he finds himself locked in Robbo's prison cell, while the criminal makes a run for it with Kat.

But as the pair race off, tragedy hits when they have a head-on collision with another car.

While Robbo only has minor injuries, both Kat, and the driver of the other car, Jasmine, are in a bad way.

But unfortunately for Kat she never gets to keep her promise.

After being rushed to hospital, Kat and her unborn baby both dramatically die when doctors fail to save her. Kat's friend, Tori Morgan, who works at the hospital is then given the grim job of telling everyone the tragic news.
