Sienna Blake (played by guest star Rose Riley) reckons Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) is the next BIG thing on Home and Away (Channel 5, 6.00pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

But model agency boss Sienna expects her models to do whatever it takes to book the best jobs and soon she is visiting the Bay with some good news for Nikau - she has booked him a photo shoot for next week.

However, when Sienna shows Nikau photos of a bunch of muscular male models, she seems to be suggesting that he should eat LESS and exercise MORE.

As Nikau's body insecurities kick in again, will he start to follow Sienna's unhealthy advice?

Christian Green (Ditch Davey) continues to make a connection with patient Rachel Young (Marny Kennedy).

Christian confides in injured skydiver Rachel about his own near-death experience and believes he survived as he was destined to save Rachel's life after her skydiving accident.

Rachel certainly believes she'd be dead right now if Christian hadn't made that last-minute decision to go skydiving on his wedding day. Unfortunately, Christian's growing friendship with Rachel just leaves his fiancee Tori Morgan (Penny McNamee) feeling even more alone and abandoned.
