Home and Away spoilers follow.

Home and Away is to shock Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) with the return of two familiar faces.

In scenes which will air this week in Australia and in three weeks' time on Channel 5 in the UK, Dean will be floored by the back-to-back arrivals of Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts) and Amber Simmons (Madeleine Jevic) in Summer Bay.

Willow recently left the town after being revealed as Witness X, while Amber left the Bay last year as she couldn't trust Dean anymore after he kidnapped their son Jai (River Jarvis).

How will Dean react to their sudden return?

TV Week reports Willow will make her return to the Bay first, showing up for the first time since giving evidence at the murder trial of Colby (Tim Franklin).

As Dean struggles to come to terms with her shock arrival, Willow makes a mysterious phone call, coaxing another person to the Bay.

That person is later revealed to be none other than Jai's mother, Amber.

Speaking previously to Digital Spy about the tensions between Amber and Dean, Madeleine Jevic said: "Dean has a lot going on in his life and she's thinking about her son.

"She's not playing games with him intentionally at all, she's just trying to cut to the chase of figuring out whether he is going to be a good influence for her son."

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.
