Justin Morgan (played by James Stewart) has a score to settle with Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) on Home and Away (Channel 5, 6.00pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Justin is not happy that his garage employee Ziggy spilled the beans about his erratic behaviour to his girlfriend Leah Patterson (Ada Nicodemou).

So now Leah has discovered the terrible truth about Justin's painkiller addiction and things get heated at the Morgan house when Justin thinks Leah is accusing him of being a drug addict just like his brother Brody.

Justin attempts to prove to Leah that he is not addicted and appears to wash all his medication down the kitchen sink, however, he is later seen desperately trying to retrieve the pills.

Meanwhile, Ziggy is down at the beach minding her own business when she encounters Justin. He takes his frustrations out on mechanic Ziggy and SACKS her from her job!

Meanwhile, Stephen Tennyson (Bren Foster) returns to the Bay. The builder is helping John Palmer (Shane Withington) and Leah gather the information that could help catch runaway conwoman Susie McAllister.

Stephen's return is a welcome distraction for Leah and John decides to hire the services of a private investigator.

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?!

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.
