Home and Away, Willow Harris, Dean Thompson

Willow finds herself getting unexpectedly defensive when she wonders if ex-boyfriend Dean has secret feelings for his mechanic mate Ziggy

Willow Harris has secretly found herself thrown into a spin by the bust-up between Ziggy Morgan and Dean Thompson, after he rejected her advances on the night of her birthday.

With hot-headed Dean now charging about, seemingly angry with the whole of Summer Bay, his policeman pal Colby Thorne wonders what's behind Dean's bizarre behaviour. But when Colby suggests Dean secretly has feelings for Ziggy, Willow finds herself getting defensive and shuts down the discussion.

Could it be, Willow has her own secret feelings for her ex-boyfriend, Dean? And, if so, isn't it about time she told him?

Meanwhile, Ziggy has told parents Maggie and Ben Astoni the reason behind her beachside bust-up with Dean. But she vows to shake herself out of her funk... with a WILD night out clubbing!

And, elsewhere, now that Ziggy's estranged husband Brody has gone public with new lady-friend, Simone Bedford, the couple start talking the next step.

But could it be too soon for Simone to move out of her van at the Caravan Park and into the garden cottage at the Morgan house with Brody?

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!" 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.
