Home and Away spoilers: Bella Nixon is grabbed by her nasty dad Ross!
There's danger in store for Bella when the teenager's dangerous dad Ross lurks in Summer Bay and suddenly pounces, dragging her away...
Bella Nixon is finally starting to settle into Summer Bay with her long-lost big brother Colby Thorne and his fiancee Chelsea Campbell.
While Colby and Chelsea are busy planning their upcoming wedding and Bella is seeking help from headmistress Maggie Astoni about catching-up with her schoolwork, everyone's unaware that Bella's dangerous dad Ross Nixon is lurking in the Bay watching their every move...
Ross has a score to settle with stepson Colby after the policeman rescued Bella from his clutches recently and brought her back to the Bay. But what does he have planned after grabbing Bella and dragging her away?
Meanwhile, Raffy Morrison begins working back at The Diner for the first time since being diagnosed with epilepsy. But to add to her stress, Raffy and her boyfriend Ryder Jackson are worried things still aren't right between them and their friend Coco Astoni, after Coco caught ex-boyfriend Ryder kissing her best friend Raffy. And when Coco starts feeling she no longer fits in around Summer Bay, it looks like she's not comfortable with the situation either.
Elsewhere, Colby and Chelsea are thrown into a spin when they discover Chelsea has been accepted onto a police detective training course in the city starting very soon. But the news means the couple will now have to get married in TWO days! Can they pull it off?
