It's been announced today that Angelo Rosetta's father, portrayed by Luke Jacobz, will return to Summer Bay later this year.
Luke Jacobz continued "It's been ten years since I was here last so I'm really looking forward to meeting the new cast and seeing some old friends as well. I'm so excited that my first backstage scene is with Ray Meagher playing Alf Stewart!
"We all got to catch up on so much. The show has always delivered great Aussie drama and I'm excited to be part of the talented family again. "Since Angelo was forced to resign from the police force back in 2010, there's no doubt that fans will be intrigued about what brings him back to Summer Bay in that capacity.
Luke later revealed to Sydney Confidential that the show producers had contacted him in January and that he was going to stick around for a while.
"They didn't tell me that I was going to die," he added. "I'm not going to come in and finish my Home and Away job, so it's a couple of months and then if it stops or if it lasts I'm going to be happy either way." Luke shot in Palm Beach last week, so we can probably expect Angelo's return on the air in July."
Angelo became associated with the developers in order to clear his name and exchanged several incriminating soil samples. The storyline came to a head with his own undercover attempts to trap developers when Angelo accidentally shot dead Jack Holden, who had followed Angelo to the development site one eveningOriginally Angelo tried to cover his escape, but during the wake, he was forced to admit to murdering Jack and he was carted away. People were angry when Angelo later returned to Summer Bay as part of an investigation into an international people smuggling activity by the Marine Area Command but was gradually able to regain the confidence of the community and embarked on a friendship with Charlie Buckton.
He later discovered that Jack's uncle Hugo Austin was behind the smuggling operation, and managed to broker a settlement with Hugo that saw him report his death and seek witness protection. Angelo was later made sergeant at the Yabbie Creek police station and Hugo emerged from the hiding, but after a showdown with corrupt police officer Gordon Eaves, Angelo let Hugo run with girlfriend Martha MacKenzie.
