Home and Away officially confirms Bella Nixon's return
Home and Aways spoilers follow.
Following some speculations about her return, Courtney Miller is officially going back to Home and Away as Bella Nixon amidst fresh heartache for Nikau Parata.
With Bella on her way back to Summer Bay, it looks as though the two exes will have some unfinished business to discuss.
Things ended on a sour note for the former lovebirds last year when Nikau suddenly broke up with Bella shortly after she moved to New York.

Now a successful photographer in the US, Bella had no idea Nikau initiated the split to protect her.
The character, played by Kawakawa Fox-Reo, and his uncle Tane were being threatened by the bikies at the time, so he decided to cut ties with Bella to prevent her from going back to Australia.
"Bella and Nikau now live in two worlds," Nixon told TV Week. "New York is very different to the feel of Summer Bay. Nikau is taken aback by her return – as much has happened for both of them."

Bella may be back to meet Ziggy's daughter Izzy, but she can't escape running into Nikau. In upcoming scenes, the two go for coffee, with Nikau telling Bella the truth about their breakup.
She's hurt to learn he hasn't called her once he was safe, but they agree to put their romance behind them. However, the two exes can't help but slip back into the old, familiar ways, leaving fans hopeful for a reunion, particularly as Fox-Reo has been confirmed to exit the Aussie soap.
