And there's a welcome distraction for Elly, when she and bestie Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly) have a heart-to-heart about the status of their feelings for each other and finally start making plans for their date!

Elsewhere, Bea pleads for ex-boyfriend Ned Willis's (Ben Hall) help dealing with Finn Kelly's (Rob Mills) obsessed stalker Alfie Sutton (Harry Borland).

But Ned is wary of racing to Bea's rescue again after a warning from his now girlfriend Yashvi Rebecchi (Olivia Junkeer) to keep his distance.

However, when Yashvi discovers Alfie is planning to break into the Kennedy house during the Music Festival, she decides to take matters into her own hands and confront the intruder.

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?!

Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy.

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.

Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)

And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
