'Home and Away': Meet Brax's new love interest Ricky

By
Here's a first look at Home and Away newcomer Ricky Sharpe, who will soon make her debut on screen as Brax's latest love interest.

As reported earlier this week, actress Bonnie Sveen has taken on the role of Ricky, who turns up in Summer Bay for Heath and Bianca's engagement party.

Ricky is the younger sister of Adam Sharpe and has known Brax since he was a teenager.

Sparks fly when Ricky and Brax come face-to-face again, which quickly leads to a one-night stand between the pair.

Although Ricky is keen to keep this as a casual fling, Brax is looking for something more serious and holds out hope that she'll stop pushing him away.

Brax's ex-girlfriend Natalie Davison (Catherine Mack) also encourages him to make a go of things with Ricky.

As Brax starts making some progress with Ricky, she brings out a playful side of his personality which viewers haven't seen for a while - but can the fun times ever last for long in Summer Bay?

Steve Peacocke, who plays Brax, recently said: "Ricky is a ball of energy and she takes Brax back to a happier time, when life was a bit simpler.

"It's just whether Ricky's past will get in the way, because she does have one - and it's pretty intense."

Home and Away airs Ricky's first scenes next week on Network Seven in Australia, and late April on Channel 5 in the UK.
