Home and Away spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.
Home and Away is set to revisit a romance between Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost) and Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) as they both struggle with their emotions.
Jasmine and Colby, who just happens to be the best friend of Jasmine's late husband Robbo Shaw's best friend, have briefly been an item before and shared a drunken kiss last year during a difficult period in Jasmine and Robbo's relationship, which they quickly regretted.
It's clear to Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts) and Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) that both Colby and Jasmine are heading down self-destructive paths, with Colby drowning his sorrows after his split and Jasmine trying to get over her recent 'phantom' pregnancy, as well as the loss of Robbo.
"Jasmine's world has now crumbled," said Frost. "She hadn't been able to contain herself at the thought of being pregnant. She was so excited, and it brought her so much joy. She absolutely saw it as a blessing and wanted to have the baby so, so much.
"The 'pregnancy' was the last glimmer of hope she had of keeping Robbo alive. Jasmine has been through so much in the last few months and now she finds herself on another huge roller-coaster of emotions."
Franklin added: "Jasmine's been behaving very erratically lately. She's definitely not in a good place. She's feeling nostalgic and sad. She needs some affection and company, which she misses so much. And Colby, who is also feeling sad and lonely, just happens to be there."
But will the pair give in to temptation and if so will they regret it again?
Franklin admitted that reading the scripts for these scenes made him feel "awful", saying: "I thought 'No, Colby!' You promised that you would look after the wife of your best friend, but you can't even look after yourself. I felt conflicted. But that's where the drama lies."
These scenes will air next week in Australia and later in the year on Channel 5 for UK viewers.
Home and Away currently airs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 1.15pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
