An emotional Bella Nixon finally reveals to school friend Ryder what really happened between her and online stalker Tommy on Home and Away
Colby Thorne (played by Tim Franklin) is still worried about his teenage sister Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller) on Home and Away, as she continues to struggle to come to terms with what happened to her at the hands of creepy online stalker, Tommy.
Bella still has no plans to return to Summer Bay High School and doesn't want to carry on with her photography, because of what happened with Tommy.
Colby enlists the help of Bella's schoolfriend Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich) to see if he can get through to Bella, after making a connection with the troubled teenager after her recent drunken behaviour.
However, Bella freaks out when Ryder puts a reassuring hand on her shoulder.
Confused by Bella's behaviour, Ryder is left shocked when an emotional Bella comes clean and tells him what really happened between her and Tommy.
Meanwhile, Irene (Lynne McGranger) has been left fearing the worst after the news Tommy plans to sue her if she's found guilty of assaulting him, while defending Bella from his clutches.
How will Irene's friend Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou) react when Irene, fearing she'll be found guilty and sent to prison, gets a legal document drawn up signing over her share of the Diner to Leah!
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
