Raffy Morrison and Ryder Jackson have been dreading their school friend Coco Astoni finding out they are now dating. So the pair have been planning the best way to break the news to Coco when she returns home after a trip away from the Bay.

However, things don't quite go according to plan when Coco comes back and quickly becomes suspicious of Ryder's shifty behaviour and starts to wonder if something has happened while she was away.

Coco doesn't have to wait long to find out when she walks into restaurant Salt and accidentally sees her ex-boyfriend Ryder kissing her best friend Raffy. Awkward! Will Coco accept her friends' new romance?

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.

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.
