Bella Nixon's policeman brother Colby Thorne is not impressed when he finds the teenager in Ryder Jackson's bed on Home and Away!
As Ryder Jackson's (played by Lukas Radovich) party starts to get out of hand, he's alarmed when he finds teenager Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller) in a drunken state on Home and Away. If Bella's policeman brother Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) finds out, they'll both be in BIG trouble!
Ryder decides the best plan of action is to let Bella sleep-off the booze and manages to smuggle her into his bedroom at Summer Bay House.
However, when Ryder's granddad Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) and aunt Roo (Georgie Parker) return home and wonder why Ryder is back home so early, will he be forced to confess the truth about his out-of-control party and that he was the one who supplied the underage teenagers (including Bella) with the booze?
The morning after the night before, the adults have questions. And when Alf and Colby burst into Ryder's bedroom they are shocked to find Bella half-dressed on Ryder's bed!
Although the situation is entirely innocent, will they both jump to the WRONG conclusion?
And Ryder and Bella aren't the only pair busted in the bedroom in this episode...
Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) gets more than he bargained for when he catches Colby in bed with Dean's sister Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir). That's a sight he didn't need to see!
So much for Colby and Mackenzie's plan to "take things slow"!
Elsewhere in Summer Bay, Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger) is hopeful she will avoid prison time if Bella testifies at her court hearing and explains how Irene was defending Bella when she attacked Bella's online stalker, Tommy.
But Irene's bubble is burst when Colby reveals some bad news: Bella is in no state to testify! So what now for Irene?
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
