Home and Away, Bella Nixon

There's a blast from the past for policeman Colby when he finally tracks down his missing teenage sister Bella. But she's armed and dangerous!

With Colby Thorne getting increasingly frustrated about the lack of leads on his missing teenage sister Bella Nixon, the policeman's fiancée Chelsea Campbell calls her police inspector dad Neil Campbell and finally convinces him to give her some information about Colby's nasty stepdad Ross Nixon, who disappeared with Bella a few years back.

Armed with the address, Colby and his buddy Dean Thompson hit the road to investigate whether Ross and Bella still live at the house.

But Colby's in for a shock when not only does he come face-to-face with Bella after all this time, but finds her armed with a crossbow and ready to shoot...

Meanwhile, after his younger sister Raffy Morrison's angry outburst, Justin Morgan decides to step in and try and help.

After discovering Raffy is feeling conflicted about where to live, Justin visits the teen's foster parents John Palmer and Marilyn Chambers. But is Justin there to warn the couple to keep their distance, or to discuss the possibility of Raffy returning to live with them?

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.

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!"
