Custody issues over Billie’s baby?

With Billie likely departing the show early into the new season, that leaves the question of who will look after her newborn baby, Luc.

In early November, pictures emerged of old friends Irene and Leah seemingly engaged in a heated argument, with Leah about to slap her best friend.

With Luc’s father actually being Irene’s estranged son, could the two long time friends be about to come to blows over who takes care of Billie’s baby?

With a possible legal minefield emerging if there is a custody battle, Billie’s brother Ash (George Mason) and Kat (Pia Miller) have both been pictured filming several times with a baby in their arms. Could Luc end up in the custody of her Uncle Marty?

We recently stumbled across two videos of audition pieces for a future Home and Away character named Scarlett Snow.

In the script extract provided to auditionees, dialogue indicates that Brody is in rehab after apparently taking $10,000 from Scarlett and subsequently going missing.

Eyewitness at Palm Beach have talked of Brody being seen conversing and buying from drug dealers on more than one occasion, and scenes filmed in the tailend of 2016 have also shown Brody walking around in a clearly distressed state, dropping to his knees in agony with his head in his hands. Below is a video filmed in the last week of filming, showing Brody running from police.

Jett was last seen in November 2015, having returned from boarding school with his girlfriend Skye Peters.

After it was revealed that Skye was having issues with her abusive mother, she ended up staying with Jett’s adoptive father John after Jett returned to boarding school. Her departure with bad boy Tank Snelgrove left John reeling, and feeling like he had failed in his role as Skye’s guardian.

Earlier this month, Will McDonald, who plays Jett, was spotted filming alongside Emily Symons (Marilyn Chambers) on Palm Beach, and, while not yet officially confirmed, it’s understood that Jett is returning in a guest capacity and will be on screen around May-June next year.

A Quick Note on ‘Spoilers’

Please remember that some of things stated in this article are only speculation based on what we can see in the photos. Certain H&A fan pages on social media are presenting their own speculation as fact, with the consequence of misleading information being spread around the internet. A lot of this has later been proven completely false, which has caused a lot of confusion with fans.

Unless information can be backed up with a credible source or photographic proof, then please take any of those type of ‘spoilers’ with a pinch of salt. Even when photos are posted, these can’t always be taken at face value unless the person who physically took the photos can confirm what was happening. When so many accounts on social media take photos from fans/press and apply their own tags and ‘spoilers’ on top, this is not always easy.

We at BTTB always endeavour to make it clear when we are merely speculating, and will explain how and why we have reached any conclusions. We also attempt to trace any fan photos back to the original source, or at least someone who has credited the source, before embedding them in order to provide a link to the account.

Any information that we do state as fact is, and always has been, from reliable sources.
