Home and Away, Mackenzie Booth, Colby Thorne

Still married policeman Colby is in a right old muddle after his kiss with new Salt boss Mackenzie. Is he ready to give romance a go again?

At the moment it is looking like Colby Thorne (played by Tim Franklin) and Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) have had their first and LAST kiss on Home and Away (opens in new tab)!

Mackenzie walked out on Colby after noticing his wedding ring, which he still wears despite his marriage to policewoman Chelsea Campbell being well and truly over.

In a muddle over his feelings, the Summer Bay copper confides in friend Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts) over what's happened. But Willow is alarmed when she hears how Colby made a move on his best buddy Dean Thompson's (Patrick O'Connor) sister. This could get complicated!
