Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.

Home and Away's Colby Thorne desperately tries to keep his loved ones calm next week after hearing that Ross Nixon's body has been found.

Colby (Tim Franklin) killed Ross in early 2019, before destroying evidence and burying the body with help from his best friend Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor).

Colby's friend Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts) and sister Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller) are also aware of his crime, but have kept quiet to ensure that he doesn't go to prison.

Next week's episodes on Channel 5 see Colby receive a call from a police colleague, who explains that Ross's body has been found in bushland.

Colby then springs into action by trying to reassure Dean, Willow and Bella that Ross's murder won't lead back to them and there's nothing to worry about.

Dean is far from reassured by these words, remembering that he sleepwalked back to the scene of the crime and could have left evidence behind. Colby dismisses this, insisting that too much time has passed.

Bella also fears it's only a matter of time before the police figure out the truth, so she suggests they should all go on the run. Colby shuts down this idea, pointing out that it'd only make them look guilty.

Colby also promises that he'll be able to closely monitor the investigation from his position within the police, ensuring that there are no nasty surprises for anyone.

Later in the week, Angelo Rosetta (Luke Jacobz) appears in town for the first time since 2011, now back in the police force as a detective.

Angelo has been sent to lead the investigation into Ross's murder and is determined to solve the mystery.

Bella is first to cross paths with Angelo and he inadvertently freaks her out by promising to find her father's killer.

Colby then meets Angelo for the first time and tries to fool him by recalling the cover story he manufactured at the start of last year.

Feeling confident, Colby believes he'll be able to outsmart Angelo – but is he underestimating him?
