Home and Away spoilers: Colby Thorne to confess to KILLER crime?

Home and Away, Colby Thorne

Colby is determined to make things right after Dean drops some harsh home truths... he's going to admit to killing Ross Nixon...

Colby Thorne has been out-of-his-depth trying to help his best mate Dean Thompson detox from a sleeping pills addiction.

So the policeman is grateful that hospital nurse Jasmine Delaney has unexpectedly shown up at the hotel room, and taken over the supervision of Dean's detox.

Meanwhile, Colby is left to cover with Dean's board shop boss Ben Astoni, who is annoyed after Dean fails to show for work (again!) claiming his buddy has a case of the flu.

While Jasmine and Willow Harris look after Dean back at Colby's beachside apartment, the Summer Bay copper reflects on his recent behaviour.

He leaves a phone message for now estranged wife Chelsea Campbell apologising for the way things ended between them. But still reeling from some of Dean's harsh home truths about his behaviour on the day he shot and killed his hated stepdad Ross Nixon, Colby realises it's time to face his fate.

Willow is alarmed when Colby drops the shock news he's decided it's time to make things right - by confessing to Ross's murder...

Home and Away continues weekdays at 1:15pm and 6:00pm on Channel 5

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.
