Home and Away spoilers: Marilyn and John discover foster son Ty's secret

Home and Away - Marilyn Chambers and Ty Anderson

Marilyn and John fear for their foster son Ty's safety after the teenager runs away and accidentally slips and falls down a cliff...

With only Ryder and his girlfriend Coco aware of the truth about Ty, the teenager's foster family are puzzled by his strange behaviour and whereabouts since he ran away from the Palmer house.

Ryder vows to keep Ty's secret. But as the situation gets more serious, Ryder's under pressure to tell the truth and eventually confides in his granddad Alf how his best buddy Ty tried to kiss him and then ran off.

Alf and Ty's foster dad John organises a search party and Ty is found just in time, after slipping and falling down a cliff. But Ty's not out of the woods yet. As the lad recovers in hospital, he must reveal his secret to John and Marilyn and also girlfriend Raffy. How will Raffy cope with the news?

Elsewhere in the Bay, Justin does his best to support sister Tori in the aftermath of her lover Ash's departure from Summer Bay.

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.

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?!
