Rose Delaney (played by Kirsty Marillier) wants to skip town in Home and Away (1:15pm - see our TV Guide for listings). 

Xander Delaney (Luke Van Os) was excited when Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger) revealed that the apartment above the Diner was available to rent.

He’s been living in the caravan park with his sister Rose so he can’t wait to move into a bigger place. Unfortunately, Rose doesn’t share his enthusiasm…

After all the recent drama with Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright), Rose thinks it would be better if she left before his girlfriend, Rose and Xander’s sister, Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost), returns to the Bay from visiting her late hubby’s sick mum.

When Rose reluctantly goes to inspect the apartment, she breaks the news that she’s decided to leave Summer Bay.

Fed up with the tension between Rose and Cash, Xander confronts Cash about Rose’s plans to leave Summer Bay.

Feeling guilty for running his girlfriend’s sister out of town, Cash begs Rose to stay.

When police officer Rose is on the phone to her sergeant about reversing her job transfer to Summer Bay, she’s interrupted by a charming stranger… Tex Wheeler (Lucas Lineham), the sexy handyman who’s been doing some odd jobs for Marilyn Chambers (Emily Symons).

Tex introduces himself to Rose and offers to buy her a coffee, but, distracted by her own dramas, she declines the offer.

Later, however, Rose decides to meet Tex for a drink and they get on like a house on fire until they are suddenly interrupted by a confused Xander…
