Our favourite Kiwi drama Shortland Street reached a momentous 6000 episodes tonight!

“Are you sure? That doesn’t seem enough,” laughs Angela Bloomfield, 43, who has been on our screens as Rachel McKenna since she was 19. “We have been doing it for so long – are you sure it’s not 18,000? It must be a sign of age because it feels much more than that!”

To celebrate the milestone, Angela and her other stunning co-stars – Grace Palmer, Ngahuia Piripi, Sally Martin, Ria Vandervis, Amelia Reid-Meredith and Kerry-Lee Dewing – swapped their scrubs and stethoscopes for swanky gowns and sparkling jewels for our exclusive Woman’s Day photo shoot.

See a couple of images from our shoot below – but check out more of the glitz and glamour in this week’s mag!
