Dean Thompson (played by Patrick O’Connor) has got a load of drama on his doorstep at the moment on Home and Away (Channel 5, 6:00pm - see our TV Guide for listings)

The surf board seller’s sister Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) is on a downward spiral, while family friend Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller) is stressed-out over her photography internship.

Dean seeks advice from friend Ari Parata (Rob Kipa-Williams) on what to do, but things go from bad to worse when Mia Anderson (Anna Samson) accidentally lets slip that Dean’s ex-girlfriend Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) has moved in with boyfriend Tane Parata (Ethan Browne).

Dean just recently declared he is still in love with Ziggy, and so gutted by the news, Dean suddenly packs a bag and heads out of Summer Bay…

Meanwhile, photographer Emmett Ellison (J R Reyne) confronts Sienna Blake (Rose Riley) over the way she is manipulating model Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) and his girlfriend Bella.

But model agency boss Sienna makes it clear to Emmett WHO is in charge and calling the shots.

Emmett decides to give Bella a heads-up about Sienna’s scheming, while Nikau and Bella confront Sienna about her behaviour (again).

But when Nikau finds out how much money he has made so far, will he be able to bring himself to QUIT his modelling career?

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.
