Dean Thompson of Home and Away will get a major shock from Amber Simmons.
Amber – played by Madeleine Jevic – wants to tell her ex Dean (Patrick O’Connor) of life-changing news in scenes airing this week in Australia and in the UK next month (via New Idea).
The announcement leaves Dean shocked, particularly because he is now in a relationship with Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman).
“The Dean and Amber grew up together in the Mangrove River,” said Jevic, explaining the history of the couple. “Dean was best buddies with Jai ‘s brother Colby and Amber, and he even dated Willow, and they were all very close friends.
“Amber ‘s relationship with Dean was difficult to grow up and their friends always had a no-strings-attached dimension, but she has always had a deep love for him.”
Amber first appeared in Summer Bay, after his stroke, to help care for John Palmer.
But her arrival caused problems for some of the other residents at first. Notably, she greeted Colby with a punch, still blaming him for the death of Jai.
