Home and Away 2017 spoilers

WARNING: Major Spoilers Below!


Home and Away came to a dramatic climax at the end of its 2016 season, with Justin stabbed, Billie in labour on the side of the road and a music festival under threat by a bushfire started by the Summer Bay arsonist, John Palmer.

With little over a month to go before we kick off the 30th season of the long-running soap, we take a look at some of the storylines and new characters set to grip us in 2017. We’ll be updating this page throughout the Christmas break, and keep track of it to stay one step ahead throughout next year.

You can follow us on Twitter and be the first to know when we add new spoilers.

A death in the Bay

2016 saw 3 deaths, with Oscar McGuire, Hannah Wilson and Atticus Decker all passing away, and it appears Summer Bay residents’ luck isn’t getting much better in 2017.

Back in August, paparazzi shots emerged of the cast filming a memorial service on Palm Beach, the real life home of Summer Bay’s beach. The pictures depict a wooden post, surrounded by flowers, covered in photos of Billie Ashford, and two letters, one of which reads “Darling Billie, RIP beautiful girl“.

It’s not yet known how Billie dies, but the Season Finale sees the mother-to-be’s world rocked by the news of Mick’s release, so it seems things are about to get a lot worse for poor Billie. These scenes are likely to air within a month of the show’s return.

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?

John in Jail?

Shane Withington & Emily Symons

Scenes filmed in mid-October saw one of Summer Bay’s most trusted stalwarts facing jail.

The scenes, filmed at the ‘Yabbie Creek Courthouse’ location in the Hawkesbury region—saw John Palmer (Shane Withington) sporting a suit and handcuffs!

It’s looking like a busy 2017 for John and Marilyn, with paparazzi shots from Palm Beach showing Marilyn appearing to have suffered significant burn injuries, and John being on the receiving end of Ash‘s temper in a scuffle outside the surf club.

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.

Alec Snow, who plays Matt Page, has not been seen filming since around the same time Phillipa Northeast started posting photos from the US, and Alec has since posted photos from his travels in Nepal.

Since both actors disappeared around the same time, could it be an indication that one of the bay’s newest couples leave together in the first half of 2017?

Phoebe Nicholson

Isabella Giovinazzo (Phoebe Nicholson) has also been pictured filming a scene with James Stewart (Justin Morgan) outside the surf club, which saw Phoebe reportedly saying an emotional goodbye to Justin before driving off in her station-wagon, guitar on the back seat.

Once filming wrapped, Isabella was seen hugging various crew members and having photos taken with them.

Morag Bellingham


We can reveal that the much-loved character of Morag Bellingham will be making another return to Summer Bay in 2017. Cornelia Frances, who has played the feisty character on and off since 1988, commenced filming at Palm Beach in early October, in scenes with Shane Withington.

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.

Kyle Braxton

Kyle Braxton was carted off to prison earlier this year after taking the fall for Isla Schultz (Samantha Jade) when she committed an armed robbery. Many fans were left frustrated and disappointed by his exit, wondering why Kyle would sacrifice his freedom for a girl he barely knew.

A photo posted by ✞Kira Martinez✞ (@kit4m4y) on

CONFIRMED: Kyle will be appearing in Home and Away: All or Nothing, that will go live on Presto and Foxtel Play on Australia Day – January, 26th.

However, it appears he’s set to return in 2017, with scenes filmed in Maitland Gaol showing both Nic Westaway (Kyle) and recent returnee Dan Ewing (Heath Braxton) dressed as inmates.

With recently aired scenes showing Heath nearly confessing to the murder of Gunno, could Heath finally get sent down for his crimes, or could it be part of some elaborate plan to free Kyle?

It is currenly unknown as to whether the scenes are being produced for the main show, or whether they will be part of the upcoming spin-off episode.

CONFIRMED: Isla will be appearing in Home and Away: All or Nothing, that will go live on Presto and Foxtel Play on Australia Day – January, 26th.

Hot on the heels of Kyle, bad girl Isla Schults (Samantha Jade) is also set to return. She was spotted filming scenes at the former Parramatta Correctional Centre in Western Sydney, a filming location used a number of times on the show over the past decade, where her character was filmed alongside Heath Braxton, Bianca and Nate Cooper.

We can also reveal that the scenes involved the aftermath of a prison riot, with news reporters descending on the facility.

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.
