Default Update on the Vorsters/A new life down under

Hi Every-one..a friend of mine told me about this site and mentioned that A new life down under had a few threads. I thought if anyone was interested that i could give you an update on the Vorsters! I met Steve whilst the program was being shot and decided not to be in it. Shortly after filming finished Steve and i moved in together along with my 3 children and Trevor, Steve`s son. Steph decided to return to the UK and shortly after Trevor followed. They both seem to be happy and settled there and Steph now has a baby daughter. Steve and I recently got married and live in Perth WA. We recently found out that they had tried to find Steve for a follow up program, but as we had moved they had difficulty.
Hope this helps

I always imagined Trevor would go back to the UK but never thought Steph would. I wonder if either of them will come back to Oz?

Its lovely to hear updates, we see the programmes and I often wonder about how the people on the show are getting on.

Its nice that you are with Steve, hes seems like a decent bloke who deserves some happiness.

Great update.

Lol,

The vorsters were one of the nicest families on there. The single Dad (I think he was a widower) with a daughter around 17/18 and a younger son. I can't remember where they were from but went to Perth.

I remember episodes where they went out in a boat and another where I think Dad and the son had a bit of an argument, lol. I used to love the ones where the were sat out by the pool on an evening. In fact, I'm sure it was them that had a little table or something in their pool which my daughter insists we should get, lol.

From what I remember Steph met an Australian boy and they seemed very happy. I'm surprised either of them went back as they all seemed so happy.

Glad to hear that you met and married Steve, lovely bloke from what I remember


Tracey

(somebody will come on and tell me I've got them confused wth another family now, lol!!)

Thanks for the update Janine. I loved watching those programmes and Steve came across as a really lovely bloke who had been through such a tough time so I'm pleased he's found happiness again.

I'm not surprised Trevor returned to the UK (but he must miss Steve's sister who he was very close to?) but I am surprised that Steph returned - she seemed very settled.

Good luck to you and Steve in your married life - I wish you all the happiness in the world.

Jules

That so ggod to hear about the Vorsters, as everyone has said, it's nice to hear what happened to these families. I'm glad you and Steve are happy, he came across as a lovely guy, I am not surprised Trevor went home but Steph loved it, so thats a shame, congratulations to Steph on the baby and i wish you all the best for the future.

Oh you will remember them....

The Dad Steve had been widowed and he moved out there with his 2 children Steph who I think was about 17 and Trevor who was about 13. Steve's sister Julie lived in Perth so they went to live there from Woking I think.

I always remember the episode where Steve was having a flying lesson and the instructor told him to take a left turn and he turned the plane right! I thought that was hilarious!
