Colleen Smart.

Colleen Stewart (previously Smart), nee Hickie) was a character in Home And Away who first appeared in Episode 36 (7 March 1988). She is the half sister of Alf Stewart, Morag Bellingham, Celia Stewart, Debra Stewart and Barbara Fisher. Coleen was the busybody of Summer Bay. She last appeared in Ep 5664 (24 Jan 2013). Colleen has sometimes been classed as the Eileen Clarke of Summer Bay, the flighty, gossipy lady, very similar to the Neighbours [1] character Mrs Mangel [2] or an Esme Watson (of A Country Practice fame [3] ) type character. Colleen was played by Lyn Collingwood.



Coleen Hickie was born in May 1939, the illegitimate daughter of Gordon Stewart and Mavis Hickie. Coleen was adopted by Merv Hickie. In 1954, aged 14, Coleen became pregnant and gave birth to a daughter Maureen in March 1955. Maureen was adopted. In 1959, Colleen won the Miss Beauty Groper pageant. Coleen was good friends with Morag Stewart, Celia Stewart and Alf Stewart, unaware at the time they were her half siblings, the bumbling Colleen was proud of the fact she was a Stewart, and always believed in her heart that she was a true "Stewart". Morag later married Richard Bellingham.

In 1965, Coleen married Les Smart and they had a son Lance Smart in 1968.
