Home and Away spoilers: Bella Nixon causes chaos at Summer Bay High!

Home and Away, Bella Nixon, Raffy Morrison, Ryder Jackson

Bella is back to her rebellious ways and causes an evacuation at Summer Bay High when she illegally pulls the fire alarm!

It looks like Bella Nixon is on her way to becoming Summer Bay's biggest teenage rebel!

Since the graffiti incident, which caused support teacher Simone Bedford to quit her job, Bella has continued with her bad behaviour. She's refusing to do her schoolwork and is already disobeying replacement support teacher, Roo Stewart.

In today's episode, Bella suggests she and friends Raffy Morrison and Ryder Jackson cut class and go and do something more fun. However, Raffy and Ryder are not so keen to play truant.

However, Bella is so desperate to get out of school, that she illegally sets off the fire alarm which leads to a school-wide evacuation! It looks like Bella's policeman brother, Colby Thorne could have a bad case of teenage rebellion on his hands to solve!

Home and Away, Justin Morgan, Leah Patterson

Is this the end for #Lustin? (Picture: Channel 5)

Elsewhere in the Bay, could the appeal of Justin Morgan and Leah Patterson's casual relationship be wearing off?

Justin wonders if the pair should just go back to being friends (without benefits)... or else consider going public as an official couple.

But when Leah scoffs at the idea of dating Justin for real, will the casual relationship be officially over?

Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters. Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave? Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!

Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy. He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.

Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)

And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
