Viewers will see Fraser's first scenes next week, when he is introduced as a new client for the Roscoes' garage business.

Sandy's eldest son Joe (Ayden Callaghan) then decides to play matchmaker, determined to find a more suitable partner for his mum after learning that she is having a fling with Dodger Savage (Danny Mac).

Joe's plan pays off when Fraser turns up at the house to take Sandy on a date. However, whether she will really be prepared to give up Dodger for him remains to be seen.

The boys get a surprise when Sandy arrives.
