Just when it looks like Willow might have the chance to get things back on track with ex-boyfriend Dean, it all goes wrong!

Willow Harris and Dean Thompson have certainly had some almighty bust-ups before, both when they were dating and now that they're not.

But things have been super-awkward between the pair since Willow's current boyfriend Justin Morgan gave her an ultimatum to ditch Dean because of all the trouble he has brought into her life. So Willow agreed to Justin's terms even though she still misses Dean a lot.

However, since they've been doing community service together (because of the credit card scam they were involved in last year) they haven't been able to avoid each other completely. And it looks like things might finally get back on track between the pair when Willow helps Dean out with the dilemma involving his mum Karen Thompson and the connection she might have to policeman Colby Thorne's missing sister Bella Nixon.

Unfortunately, just as things are going well, Willow sees Justin approaching. Not wanting him to see them together, she ducks out of sight. Annoyed by her behaviour Dean realises nothing has changed and he stomps off. Whoops!

Elsewhere, Colby has been caught-up in wedding planning with policewoman fiancee Chelsea Campbell. But he's unaware she is secretly helping his buddy Dean investigate a lead on his sister Bella.

Not wanting to alarm Colby until they know more, Chelsea decides to see if she can use some police power to allow Dean to visit his mum Karen at the psychiatric hospital. Will her plan work?

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