BackstoryEditCelia Stewart was born in 1951 in Summer Bay to Gordon Stewart and Sarah Jane Stewart. In the late 1960s Celia was engaged to be married but her fiancee Les Palmer was called out to war in Vietnam and was killed in 1971. She kept the engagement ring he gave her, and never got over the lose of her true love.
In January 1988, gossipy flighty Celia arrived in Summer Bay after some time away and was soon sticking her nose into other peoples businesses. She even formed a short lived band on the Variety Night in Feb 1988. The band was called Summer Bay City Rollers, a nod to the famous 1970s bubblegum pop Group Bay City Rollers.
Memorable infoEditDate of birth: 1951
Celia is said to be the 2nd youngest full sibling of Alf Stewart. Alf was born in 1945 and Morag Bellingham (nee Stewart) in 1941, 4 years before Alf. So Debra Stewart is probably Alf's next youngest sibling. Celia is said to be slightly younger than her sister in law Ailsa Stewart who was born in September 1950. Celia's year of birth is probably about 1951.
Unlike her other siblings, Celia has never married or had any children.
