April, played by Rhiannon Fish, becomes determined to lose her virginity following her break-up with boyfriend Dex (Charles Cottier) and soon ends up having a passionate encounter with Heath.
The Summer Bay student initially plans to get back at Dex by pursuing his best friend Xavier Austin (David Jones-Roberts), but she later has a new man in her sights when she has a chance meeting with Heath at the beach.
With April and Heath (Dan Ewing) both feeling down over recent events in their personal lives, they seek comfort in each other and head to bed together.
Fish told TV Week: "When I found out about this storyline, I was shocked. But Heath's always sort of there for her, plus he's hot as hell!
"She thinks, 'He's not that bad - he's pretty good-looking and he's interested'. The age difference isn't something she really thinks about."
Pondering whether the pair could embark on a proper relationship, the actress added: "April would like there to be a future, but I think Heath sees this more as a one-night stand."
Home and Away will air these scenes later this month on Network Seven in Australia and early next year on Channel 5 in the UK.
