Tributes have since poured in for the late actress on Twitter, formerly X, as one person tweeted: “Sad #Neighbours news this morning as Joy Chambers has passed away aged 76. Joy was married to @neighbours creator Reg Grundy and also played Helen Daniels Daughter Rosemary Daniels.”

Another commented: “Very sad to hear that Joy Chambers … known to us #Neighbours lovers as the fabulous Rosemary Daniels, has passed away. She was such an integral part of @Neighbours DNA as the daughter of original show matriarch Helen Daniels, but also real life wife of Reg Grundy.”
