Home and Away spoilers: Is Brody Morgan making the right decision?

Home and Away, Brody Morgan, Simone Bedford

Brody is annoyed when his siblings Justin and Tori tell him he's making a mistake leaving the Bay with Simone. But are they right?

There were Morgan family fireworks when the truth first came out that Brody Morgan had been cheating on his wife Ziggy with his then trainee chef, Simone Bedford.

But, despite facing opposition from friends and family, Brody and Simone have vowed to stay together and start afresh by leaving Summer Bay.

However, Brody's siblings Justin and Tori are not impressed by his big decision and think he's making a mistake. Brody is angry by their lack of support but is determined to stick to his plans with or without their blessing and puts his restaurant Salt up for sale!

Can the Morgan family find a way to call a truce before it all ends in bad blood?

Meanwhile, Bella Nixon is struggling at Summer Bay High School now that support teacher, Simone, has quit her job in the fallout from the graffiti incident.

Bella, who was responsible for the vandalism, realises she only has herself to blame and has now driven away Simone, who was one of her few friends/supporters when she first came back to school.

Stressed, Bella refuses to do her schoolwork or engage with new support teacher, Roo Stewart. Is Bella in danger of returning to her rebellious ways?

And, elsewhere, Justin Morgan and Leah Patterson might be friends with benefits. But how will Leah react when Justin points out they've definitely lost the friendship part?

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

Simon Timblick

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. Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave? Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!

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.

Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)

And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
