Home and Away spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.

Home and Away's Ari Parata will be confronted by his past this year as an old flame arrives in Summer Bay.

The show has revealed more details about new character Mia Anderson, who's played by Anna Samson.

Mia will be joining the Bay in the coming weeks and viewers will quickly learn that she has history with Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams).

Ari dated Mia years ago and their relationship was hit by tragedy when they lost a baby boy together.

Ari's struggle to deal with this situation led him down a self-destructive path, ultimately culminating in a prison sentence.

Mia arrives in the Bay with her grown-up daughter Chloe, who Ari also knows from the past.

Back in the day, Mia moved Chloe away for a fresh start following Ari's imprisonment, cutting her off from the man she'd previously treated like a father.

When Mia and Chloe are reunited with Ari again, how will things go and could their past affect Ari's current relationship with Mackenzie Booth?

The character of Chloe will be played by Sam Barrett, who was spotted filming scenes on location for Home and Away late last year.

Chloe is ultimately expected to become a love interest for Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich).
