Recently, as part of DS's Producer Season 2009, I chatted with Home and Away's series producer Cameron Welsh about the latest happenings in Summer Bay. Here, Cameron dishes the dirt on some juicy life-changing events for Ruby, Nicole and Charlie, and also reveals that there's someone special headed Leah's way.
Miles and Kirsty
"They've just got continued pressure on their relationship. They provide a lot of light humour for us but there's lots more pressure for them to deal with in their relationship."
"The stuff we're shooting at the moment is interesting. We have a character who's arrived in town who pretty much puts a bit of a bomb underneath Leah and stirs things up for her in the way of romance."
"Martha will continue her relationship that we can sort of see forming with Hugo and it'll be pretty interesting to see how that one develops."
"Angelo will be heavily involved in storylines from now until the end of the year and you'll see him also very much involved in this mystery storyline."
"It's really hard to talk about them without giving too much away! Charlie, like Ruby, will have her life turned around and will be forced to confront something that happened long ago in her past that will have a devastating effect on her relationship with Ruby."
Nicole and Trey
"Let me just say that the Nicole and Trey storyline is about to really explode and I really think it will shock you."
Ruby and Xavier
"They've got their own individual stories, but as a couple they'll continue to develop and grow stronger."
"Aden's story for the next while is tied up with Belle and again, without giving too much away, he's in for a rough ride."
And also on the cards...
§ We're in the midst of shooting a murder mystery at the moment and one of our people that we know well is responsible for it.
§ The investigation into that will also uncover some other secrets that will fracture relationships between characters.
§ We'll have a few new faces joining us as regulars in the next few weeks, while a couple of others will depart. There'll be some exciting new faces in the mix.
§ There'll be an explosive twist to the Trey and Nicole storyline that we're sort of seeing on air at the moment that is about to head into some very different territory – unexpected, I'd imagine.
§ Ruby and Charlie will be involved in a storyline that, as I say, will change both their lives completely. It has them both forced to face some family secrets from the past. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
