The Summer Bay copper is angry after the actions of his ex-fiancee Chelsea lead to his sister Bella being questioned by the police
Colby Thorne may have returned to Summer Bay with his long-lost teenage sister Bella Nixon, after rescuing her from the clutches of their nasty stepfather Ross Nixon. But at the same time, he's been dumped by his fiancee Chelsea Campbell, who disapproved of the way Colby went charging off in search of Bella without police assistance.
But to make matters worse, Chelsea reported Colby to their boss Sergeant McCarthy who now wants to question Bella in connection with the murder of her and Colby's mum Michelle.
When the police interview takes an intense turn, Bella breaks down, devastated at the thought her actions may have led to her mum's murder...
Furious at the turn of events, Colby angrily confronts Chelsea over her betrayal. It's looking less and less likely these two will ever make it down the aisle to get hitched!
Elsewhere in the Bay, Ryder Jackson and Raffy Morrison decide to keep their new romance a secret after sealing things with a kiss. But the teenagers are clearly so smitten with each other, will they be able to resist spilling the beans to their nearest and dearest?
Meanwhile, Surf Club Manager John Palmer is still giving Ben Astoni a tough time, even though business at Ben's surf board shop is booming. However, when John suddenly finds himself needing to ask Ben for a favour, will he regret being such a meanie?
Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5
