How many of you have ever felt personally victimised by a TV show? One minute you’re sitting there living your best life on the couch with your snacks, the next you’re bawling uncontrollably after they kill off your favourite character.

We’ve all been there, and we’re all nursing the emotional scars from watching our fave characters die.

So let’s dive back into the heartbreak, because it’s important to work through grief and because we’re definitely not at all bitter.

Here are 8 of the saddest deaths that have ever aired on Australian TV:

#1. Claire McLeod, McLeod’s Daughters

When I die, bury me with my box set of McLeod’s Daughters because I’ll carry this trauma with me to the grave.

#2. Noah Lawson, Home and Away

I will always be thirsty for Noah, and I’ll always resent this show for killing him off in a hostage situation.

#3. Patrick Reid, Offspring

I will never forget, I will never forgive. And I’ll never ever get over how Patrick came back as a ghost just to curb stomp our hearts one last time.

#4. Dee Bliss, Neighbours

Simply keep your eyes on the road, Toadie. I’ll never get over Dee’s death because it was so stupid, and led to one of the all-time-great evil impostor storylines.

#5. Casey Braxton, Home and Away

I’m sorry, did you think Home and Away would only be on this list once? Casey was just trying to save his brother and he ended up dying in his arms. This is fine.

#6. Melissa Rafter, Packed to the Rafters

This is the only thing I remember from the show, because I refused to watch it after Melissa died.

#7. Belle Taylor, Home and Away

Surprise, bitches! Home and Away strikes again. Home and Away is not here to play your games.

#8. Cobalt, The Saddle Club

You better believe I left this till last because I will NEVER get over Cobalt the horse having to be put down.

I don’t know why I’m crying in the club right now.
