However, Mitch and Karen Taylor (Lorraine Stanley) panicked when Avery suddenly collapsed and was rushed to hospital.
Avery’s sons, Felix (Matthew Morrison) and Finlay (Ashley Byam) soon showed up at the hospital and told them the heartbreaking news that Avery had terminal cancer.
In emotional upcoming scenes, Mitch tries to make Avery’s last hours memorable after Avery is eager to go to an old restaurant that he and Mitch went to when they were younger.
But, knowing that Avery is too weak and doesn’t have long left, he comes up with another idea.
Later on, Mitch decides to bring the restaurant experience closer to home as he takes Avery to the launderette for a surprise Caribbean-themed party.
Felix takes on his Drag Queen persona Tara Misu to host the bash and Avery is delighted by the effort that his family have gone to and the brothers reminisce.
Happy and loved, Avery thanks Mitch for the party, and with Mitch by his side, he says his last words and passes away.
Avery made his explosive arrival to the Square earlier this month after he attempted to drive his flashy car through the market, lying that he had a dying cat in the back that needed to get to the vets.
The market traders were up in arms, but moved their stalls out of their way so he could drive through.
They were outraged by his dishonesty, but he soon won everyone over with his kindness and generosity after hosting a party at The Vic to make amends.
