Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.

Home and Away has revealed a first look at former Neighbours star JR Reyne in his new Summer Bay role as photographer Emmett Ellison.

Australian viewers have already been introduced to Emmett, but UK fans will get their first glimpse at JR, who previously played Neighbours' Taj Coppin, in scenes airing next week.

Emmett is introduced when Nikau Parata (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) prepares for his new start at the big city modelling agency, with his girlfriend Bella Nixon's (Courtney Miller) encouragement getting Nikau in the mood for his potential big break. Nikau and Bella are initially intimidated when they go to his portfolio shoot and things don't improve when Nikau's modelling agent Sienna Blake (Rose Riley) arrives.

Sienna is surprised to see Bella with Nikau and she subtly makes her disapproval known, with Bella left feeling uncomfortable.

While Nikau is signing his contract, aspiring photographer Bella decides to take the opportunity to have a look around the agency and she soon stumbles upon a photoshoot. Photographer Emmett is initially standoffish toward her, but after he realises who Bella is he becomes more accommodating.

As Bella discusses camera lenses with Emmett, he is impressed by her knowledge. When Sienna finally tracks down Bella and addresses Emmett by his name, Bella realises just who she has been admiring.

Unfortunately, Nikau isn't having such a good time as he struggles to pose for his headshots and wishes that he wasn't at the shoot at all, as Sienna makes it clear that she isn't impressed with his shots.

Struggling with the knock to his confidence, Nikau storms out of the shoot, leaving Bella, Emmett and Sienna in shock at his behaviour.

Nikau refuses to return to the shoot, until Bella provides him with the words of encouragement that he needs. Once Nikau returns, Emmett sets Bella a challenge to take over directing Nikau and the gamble pays off, as he relaxes and leaves everyone impressed with his shots.

Seeing the important connection between Nikau and Bella, Sienna is very pleased with the shots and Emmett is impressed with how Bella has assisted with the shoot.

Could new careers be on the horizon for Nikau and Bella?

Home and Away airs these scenes on Tuesday, June 1 and Wednesday, June 2 at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5. Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
