Angelo tells Alf he wants to open a restaurant in the Surf Club extension. His parents ran an Italian restaurant and he spent a lot of time helping out when he was growing up. He always dreamed of opening his own place one day.

Alf wonders whether Angelo has the cash to start up a business and he's not sure. He needs to talk to the bank. Alf suggests he have a look at the extension plans and let him know if the space suits. If it does and he can afford it, he will put Angelo's request to the committee.

Angelo gets his loan and after a pep talk from both Marilyn and Charlie he tells Alf he wants in. The proposal goes to the committee and they accept. It's all systems go!

Alf learns of Colleen's caper and heads down to the station to see her. He's outraged to learn that Colleen is being charged with theft, there's no way she's a thief!

Colleen is downhearted and confides in Alf that maybe she did do it – how else did those things get in her home? Alf tells her someone probably set her up – has she upset anyone lately? Colleen doesn't think so.

Later, Irene arrives and Colleen is mortified that Alf told someone about her predicament – it'll be all over town in no time. Irene reassures her that she won't say anything.

Colleen is charged and released from her cell. At work the next day, she comes in convinced that everyone is talking about her. She tells Irene she can't cope and rushes out. She breaks down on the beach, the fear and hopelessness she feels overwhelming her.

When Ruby tells April she's cool with the fact she and Xavier are together, April tells her they're just friends, but April is worried what position Xavier holds on this.

Later, when Xavier is still stewing over living with John, April suggests he do something to take him out of his comfort zone – that way he'll be able to cope with more.

Xavier barrels into the cold afternoon sea, and the two spend the evening talking on the beach. They talk about friendship and kissing and eventually they fall asleep (unintentionally).

When they wake the next morning they share a kiss and it seems Xavier and April are together after all. When Xavier arrives home to a cranky Gina, he apologises for staying out all night. Gina and John are bemused by the apology. It seems April's kiss has had quite an effect on Xavier. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
