Home and Away spoilers follow from Australian episodes, which some UK readers may prefer to avoid.

Home and Away newcomer Kieran Baldivis looks set to head down a dark path in his new storyline.

Show bosses have introduced Rick Donald in the role of Kieran, who is the secret son of established character Martha Stewart (Belinda Giblin).

In scenes which aired in Australia late last year, Kieran came to Summer Bay looking for a second chance from his mum after a long period of estrangement.

Kieran grew up as a wild child, but his drinking became a problem once he was older. As this brought out a nasty side to his behaviour, Martha was left with no choice but to ultimately cut him out of her life.

Since arriving in the Bay, Kieran has claimed to be sober again and keen to turn his life around. However, Tuesday's episode in Australia (February 2) showed that this isn't the case at all.

After a seemingly-successful family meal at the Stewart household, viewers saw Kieran secretly drinking alcohol from a hip flask.

Kieran was later given a job at the gym when Martha put in a good word for him with Jasmine Delaney.

Jasmine hoped that she could trust Kieran, but as soon as he was left alone, he started secretly drinking for the second time in less than 24 hours.

How long can Kieran keep his troubling secret to himself – and could his drinking start to have an adverse effect on his behaviour once again?

Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 later this month.

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
