Channel 7 has blamed ‘human error’ after a kissing scene between two characters were cut from episodes shown in Australia.

The kisses between same-sex couple Willow Harris and Alex Neilson – played by Sarah Roberts and Zoe Ventoura respectively – were edited out for local audiences, the full scenes were aired in New Zealand.

In the New Zealand version, Alex and Willow are seen having a conversation at a bar and sharing a kiss, before Alex orders them a drink.

The version shown is Australia is the same but the kiss was cut and went straight to the bar scene.

In a statement to the ABC, Channel Seven said it was because of ‘human error’ that those scenes in two different episodes aired in Australia were not aired.
