Meanwhile, Tori Morgan (Penny McNamee) is alarmed when her brother, Justin (James Stewart) is discharged from hospital after his collapse, and returns home.

It's not long before Tori and Christian get into another argument.

Can their relationship survive their different medical opinions?

Home and Away, Irene Roberts, Martha Stewart

Irene tries to get to the bottom of the disagreement between Alf and Martha on Home and Away

And there is still tension between Alf Stewart (Ray Meagher) and his wife, Martha (Belinda Giblin) after their return home from their latest roadtrip.

Alf is annoyed that Martha is still refusing to sell her home in the small town of Merimbula.

Could it be that Martha is feeling trapped and doesn't want to move to Summer Bay permanently?

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