Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.
Home and Away introduces a scheming new character called Sienna Blake on UK screens next week.
Rose Riley has been cast as the new arrival, who'll be working as Nikau Parata's modelling agent in upcoming scenes. (And yes, she shares the same name as a certain Hollyoaks character, who's also known for scheming.)
A new storyline for Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) begins when he discovers that a modelling agency wants to sign him after meeting him at an event in the city.
Nikau meets up with Sienna and initially intends to turn down her offer. However, Sienna manages to sweeten the deal with an added bonus, agreeing that Nikau's girlfriend Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller) can have a photography internship with a top professional.
Nikau realises this could be a great opportunity for both him and Bella, even though he's not totally comfortable with the modelling world.
Once Nikau has signed up, he's invited to the agency in the city in order to pose for some portfolio shots.
Nikau struggles to act natural in front of the camera and Sienna is not impressed by the shots that he's producing.
When it all gets too much, Nikau storms out of the photoshoot and considers pulling out before the new opportunity has even properly begun.
Bella manages to talk Nikau round and saves the day by directing him throughout the rest of the shoot.
With Bella's support, Nikau manages to calm down and Sienna is finally satisfied with the pictures.
That evening, Nikau returns home and is rewarded for his efforts when he receives a basket of goodies from the agency – including a bottle of expensive champagne.
Nikau is informed that he has already been booked for his first job, so his future is looking bright.
While everything seems to be going well, Sienna's ruthlessness when it comes to masterminding Nikau's career will become apparent in the coming weeks. Has Nikau unknowingly made a deal with the devil?
Home and Away airs Sienna's first episode on Monday, May 31 at 1.15pm and 6.30pm on Channel 5. Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
