Bella and Nikau will be sorely missed. Tonight’s programme had many tearful moments. Extremely happy they received the appropriate conclusion, exclaimed one delighted viewer.
“I loved this send-off; it made me tear up!”
“It was also great to have someone who had left the bay return for a visit — that never occurs,” the admirer remarked.

Someone said on Courtney’s message board, ‘No way so many people are quitting the show it not going to be same.
