Home and Away spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.

Home and Away has revealed that Colby Thorne will face a dramatic fight for his life next month.

The huge storyline has been confirmed in a new trailer which teases what's to come when the 2021 season begins on Australian screens.

Last November, the 2020 Australian season finale episode ended on a worrying note for Colby after he'd been sent to prison for the murder of Ross Nixon.

Colby had desperately hoped to prevent any of the other inmates from finding out that he used to work as a police officer, knowing that this could be a potential death sentence.

Unfortunately for Colby, his secret was ultimately exposed and a group of menacing prisoners cornered him.

Home and Away's newest trailer now shows Colby in hospital, seemingly as a result of the incident.

Colby's sister Bella Nixon (Courtney Miller) is seen by his side in an emotional state, saying: "I love you, Colby."

Meanwhile, an on-screen caption bills the storyline as "A fight to survive".

Rumours that Tim Franklin, who plays Colby, has left the Home and Away cast have been circulating online for some time. However, viewers will have to tune in to find out whether the disgraced policeman is being killed off.

Home and Away returns to Australian screens on Monday, February 1.

The show has already made its comeback on Channel 5 in the UK, which is running several weeks behind the Australian timeline.

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and returns on Monday, February 1 at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
