Home and Away is lining up a new love interest for Mackenzie Booth.

Former Neighbours star Harley Bonner was previously announced to be joining the fellow Aussie soap as Dr Logan Bennett.

However, a new paparazzi picture from filming suggests that Logan and Mac (Emily Weir) will be getting quite intimate on the show, as the pair are seen sharing a kiss on the beach.

Logan is yet to make his debut on screen, and while there aren't any details about their relationship, we're sure to see him grow close to Mac.

Harley previously described his character as "a bit of a nomad" that is "capable, compassionate, intelligent and fun".

"He's seen and done a lot in his life, some of which he tries his best to avoid getting into," he said. "I'm intrigued to find out what we’ll discover as time goes on.

"This is a brand new playing field for Logan. Summer Bay might just prove to be the change of pace and scenery he's been looking for. Then again, fate may have other plans."

The new events come after a hard-hitting storyline for Mac, as she sadly lost her baby with Ari Parata after experiencing an ectopic pregnancy.

Speaking of the aftermath of the pregnancy and Mac's downward spiral, Emily recently told Digital Spy: "Boy, does she ride that train all the way to the bottom. There's a pile-on of grief.

"Everything was hunky-dory and then her boyfriend left, then she found out she was pregnant, then her boyfriend ended up in a coma, then he was back with his ex, then she loses her baby.

"So there's just all these catastrophic events that happen and the release from that pressure cooker bursts. She really goes into a downward spiral in which she self-destructs, pushes everyone close to her away and she really severs ties with many important relationships in her life because she doesn't feel worthy and is in so much pain."

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia). Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
