Home and Away will be bringing back Morag Bellingham as John Palmer stands trial for the Summer Bay bushfires.

Fans may have already been aware that Morag (Cornelia Frances) would be making another guest appearance on the Aussie soap, but details about her return had been kept under wraps until now. Major spoilers for UK viewers follow...

Morag will be called upon by John's desperate wife Marilyn, who is determined to prevent him from getting a lengthy jail sentence.

Viewers know that an unwell John was responsible for starting a series of fires that wreaked havoc in the Bay – and caused Billie Ashford's cancer that led to her death.

However, when John is appointed an insouciant legal aid lawyer to represent him in court, it really does look the odds are against him.

Unimpressed by Lachlan the lawyer, Marilyn is advised by Irene and Roo to call feisty Morag – who last turned up in the beachside town to defend Zac MacGuire when he was wrongly arrested on suspicion of murdering Charlotte King.

TV Week reports that Morag will soon be arriving at the Palmer's doorstop, but sadly for Marilyn and John it isn't all good news.

Although Morag is happy to help John as much as she can, she is also keen to be realistic about the fight they are facing, and warns the pair that it won't be easy. But can Morag prevent John from going to jail?

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 in the UK, and weekdays at 7pm on Network Seven in Australia.
