What's going on here? Has Dean realised he belongs with ex-girlfriend Willow after all? Or is he about to break her heart again?
So, Willow Harris has made it pretty clear she'd be happy to give things another go with ex-boyfriend, Dean Thompson. However, he's happy with them being just good friends.
But the problem is, teenager Bella Nixon has got involved now and doesn't think Dean is being very considerate of Willow's feelings. Especially as Dean is now spending a LOT of time with Ziggy Morgan since her marriage break-up.
With Dean and Ziggy about to head off to take part in a charity race car rally, Bella is convinced the pair are "going to get it on!" and won't let the issue drop.
So Dean and Willow end up having a heart-to-heart about where they stand with each other. Neither wants to throw away their friendship... so it looks like friends it is.
But that's good enough for Bella and she decides she's going to keep a close eye on Dean and Ziggy. As their friends and family wave them off to the race, nobody is aware that Bella is hiding in the boot of their car!
Meanwhile, things are looking up for Jett Palmer now the injured young soldier has settled on the idea of trying to help others in a similar situation.
However, Jett's dad John still has his reservations and is worried that helping other disabled soldiers might trigger some of Jett's own issues about the explosion at the army base in Afghanistan, which has now left him unable to walk and in a wheelchair. But how will Jett react when John tells him his concerns?
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
