·2-min read

Home and Away spoilers follow.

Home and Away's Alf Stewart is set to face a mystery health scare in an upcoming episode, as he continues to push himself too hard.

In scenes scheduled to air this week in Australia, and later next month in the UK, the Summer Bay resident will find his busy-body ways getting the better of him when he suffers a sudden dizzy spell.

Initially, Alf (Ray Meagher) brushes off the concerns of those around him, but is it just that he's spreading himself too thin working at the caravan park, the bait shop and the surf club? Or might there be something more worrying going on?

Tane (Ethan Browne) notices that Alf seems more knackered than usual and offers to help at the shop. Alf, determined he can manage, turns him down though. Later, when Marilyn (Emily Symons) and daughter Roo (Georgie Parker) suggest he's doing too much and should take Tane on for a bit, he just waves them away.

"Roo tries to get Alf to slow down, but he's never going to while there's stuff to do," Meagher, 76, recently told TV Week, before revealing that Alf will be seen snapping at Roo to get her off his case.

Taking the fact that Alf had a heart attack not all that long ago into consideration, Roo, Marilyn and Irene (Lynne McGranger) enter into crisis mode and get together to discuss what they can do about his stubbornness. The chat ends with Roo vowing to cut her hours at school so that she can look after her father.

But how will Alf respond to her decision?

Home and Away airs on Channel 7 in Australia and Channel 5 in the UK. Selected classic episodes are also available via Amazon Prime Video.
