Home and Away star Emily Symons has revealed that sparks will fly between her character Marilyn Chambers and Nicole Franklin as their current baby storyline continues.

Following Nicole's decision to give away her child George to Marilyn soon after giving birth, the teenager struggles to switch off her mothering instinct and pays a visit to see him.

However, speaking to TV Week, Symons explained that the situation becomes volatile when Marilyn catches Nicole (Tessa James) breastfeeding a crying George during a moment alone - leaving her to fear that Nicole is getting too close to the newborn.

The actress commented: "This is a dream come true for Marilyn, but of course, being a new mother has so many challenges. She already has some reservations about Nicole spending time with George, and when it does happen, it seems her fears are confirmed."

Discussing the breastfeeding incident, Symons added: "Marilyn is shocked and offended, and this cuts to the very core of her worries - that she doesn't have the same natural mothering instincts as George's birth mother.

"Without a doubt, Marilyn thinks Nicole is overstepping the mark. She feels that a boundary has been overstepped and it could put a big strain on their relationship."

Following the row, Marilyn tells Nicole to stay away from her house and the baby in future, leaving their friendship under threat.

The scenes in question air in Australia next week and later this month on Channel 5 in the UK.
