Home and Away spoilers: Strewth! WHY does Alf Stewart lose his cool?

Home and Away, Alf Stewart

Alf Stewart is back home after his honeymoon on Home and Away. But he's not happy about what's been happening in the Bay while he was gone!

Alf Stewart (played by Ray Meagher) is back in the Bay again on Home and Away (1:15pm/6:00pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings).

However, his happy honeymoon bubble soon bursts when he finds out there's been a whole LOT going on in Summer Bay since he and wife, Martha (Belinda Giblin) were gone.

First up, Alf is annoyed nobody told him about the arrival of his grandson, Ryder Jackson's (Lukas Radovich) long-lost dad, Evan Slater (Cameron Daddo).

Evan abandoned Alf's daughter, Quinn years earlier and left her to raise Ryder as a single mum. So Alf definitely won't be giving him a warm welcome!

Alf is further troubled when he finds out Marilyn Chambers (Emily Symons) and John Pamer (Shane Withington) have split-up and John no longer lives at their home.

Strewth! What else is Alf about to find out?
