Jasmine Delaney (played by Sam Frost) is not best pleased that her half siblings, Xander (Luke Van Os) and Rose (Kirsty Marillier) have decided to stay in Summer Bay on Home and Away (1:15pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Despite the frosty reception they've received from Jasmine, Xander and Rose want the chance to get to know the secret half-sister they never knew they had.

Jasmine downloads to her boyfriend, Cash Newman (Nicholas Cartwright) about Xander and Rose's change of plans.

Jasmine wants everything to go back to normal.

But Cash encourages her to hear out Xander and Rose.

All three of them have just lost the same dad, so they definitely have some common ground.

The ice seems to be thawing between Jasmine, Xander and Rose.

That is until Jasmine discovers that well-meaning Cash played a part in the siblings' decision to stay in town.

Jasmine is outraged that Cash has been playing peacekeeper on her behalf.

Has Cash made a BIG mistake?
