Home and Away, John Palmer, Ari Parata, Nikau Parata

After John Palmer has another run-in with Ari and his nephew Nikau on Home and Away, he is not happy when his wife Marilyn invites the homeless family to move in!

John Palmer (played by Shane Withington) is not a fan of mystery man Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) and his family on Home and Away (1:15pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings).

So, unaware that the Parata family are now homeless and have been sleeping rough in their car, stuffy John is not impressed when he finds Ari and his nephew, Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) using the public shower outside the Surf Club to wash and brush their teeth.

However, John's wife Marilyn Chambers (Emily Symons) is a lot kinder. So when she realises the predicament Ari and his family are in, she offers to let them move in with her and John.
