Home and Away cast and crew ‘not talking’ to Ada Nicodemou amid controversial relationship with former BFF Sarah Roberts’ ex James Stewart: ‘No one respects someone who sleeps with their friend’s ex-husband’

Tensions are reportedly rising amongst the Home and Away cast and crew amid Ada Nicodemou’s new relationship with fellow co-star James Stewart.

The pair’s relationship became public last month, shortly after James’ ex-wife Sarah Roberts confirmed their split in April.

But the couple, who are on-screen husband and wife on the Channel Seven soap, have apparently sparked a divide within the production.

According to Yahoo Lifestyle, a source claimed several cast and crew members are no longer on speaking terms with Ada, after she began dating Sarah’s ex James.

Sarah, who used to be ‘close friends’ with Ada, also appeared on the show from 2017 to 2021 and keeps close ties with the crew.

‘I know a lot of the cast and crew aren’t talking to Ada anymore because Ada and Sarah were really good friends. And no one respects someone who sleeps with their friend’s ex-husband,’ the source told the outlet.

‘Sarah is amazing. Literally the most lovely, beautiful person. All her friends are proud of her courage and resilience.’

Ada and James’ romance was revealed after New Idea magazine published photos of the brunette kissing her on-screen lover outside a Sydney pub on April 25. 

The pair were reportedly seen enjoying Anzac Day drinks with friends at the Royal hotel Randwick, before enjoying a romantic dinner at a nearby Italian restaurant. 

As the night came to an end, the couple took a stroll before James pulled Ada in for a steamy kiss.

Days earlier, on April 20, James’ ex-wife Sarah Roberts confirmed to Stellar magazine she and the actor had split after five years of marriage, and that their divorce had been finalised in March.

‘I just want to say that I am divorced,’ she told the publication, adding: ‘Sometimes people grow apart and that’s okay… I got to a point where I realised I couldn’t grow in the way I wanted to within this particular relationship.’

On April 7, Ada and James were also spotted enjoying a day out at Luna Park with their respective children.

In a cosy photo of the outing that surfaced earlier this week, James sat opposite Ada at a table at the theme park, next to his daughter Scout, 11, who he shares with ex Jessica Marais.

Ada meanwhile sat next to her son Johnas, 12, who she shares with ex-husband Chrys Xipolitas.

Rumours of James and Ada’s romance first emerged after sources close to the pair said their on-screen chemistry had blossomed into a real-life connection. 

Ada was previously in an eight-year relationship with Sydney businessman Adam Rigby, but the couple reportedly parted ways at the end of 2022.
