Marilyn Chambers actress Emily Symons has shed some light on her character's reaction to ex John Palmer's new romance with Susie McAllister in Home and Away.

In the soap's Australian broadcast, John has started getting to know Summer Bay newcomer Susie, who's taken a shine to him, but these scenes won't be out on UK soil for another three weeks.

You'd imagine that the green-eyed monster might rear its head in the coming episodes, as John and Susie really kick on with their connection, but apparently, Marilyn isn't fazed at all.

Symons told Now to Love in an interview: "She was astonished... where did John find this fancy girlfriend? There is so much excitement in the Bay, that Marilyn eventually isn't too bothered about John and his new love interest.

"I think for Marilyn everything is balancing out and she is finding her way."
