Having wasted so much time during their break-up, newly engaged couple Jasmine Delaney and Robbo look to the future and their wedding day!
Jasmine Delaney and Robbo are back in the Bay, all loved-up after a short getaway to a B&B.
As news of the couple's re-engagement spreads, Jasmine discovers troublesome teenager Bella Nixon has moved into the Beach House. Later, this leads to Jasmine opening up to Robbo about her past time in foster care.
Once again moved by Jasmine's honesty about her difficult past, Robbo realises he can't wait to become her husband and wants to walk down the aisle as soon as possible!
But will Jasmine agree when he declares he wants to start planning their wedding NOW?
Meanwhile, Irene Roberts is still trying to establish the rules of the household with new resident, Bella.

It quickly becomes a stand-off between the two, when Bella refuses to do her own washing-up! Will Irene abandon ship and send badly behaved Bella packing back to Colby?
Elsewhere, Marilyn Chambers becomes concerned when hubby John Palmer returns from the city, where he's been helping their son Jett settle into his new home, and starts to obsess that injured soldier Jett won't be able to cope on his own.
