Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.

Home and Away's Dean Thompson confides in doctor Logan Bennett on UK screens next week as he tries to get his relationship with Ziggy Astoni fully back on track.

Dean (Patrick O'Connor) has been facing a tough recovery process since his involvement in a huge car crash disaster last year.

In next week's episodes on Channel 5, Ziggy (Sophie Dillman) confides in Mackenzie Booth (Emily Weir) about how she misses being intimate with Dean.

The couple haven't slept together since the crash as Dean seems so fragile, but Ziggy is determined to be patient with her boyfriend.

Soon afterwards, Ziggy helps Dean with his ongoing rehab in the gym.

This only causes the sexual tension between them to intensify and they're unable to take their eyes off each other.

Later, Dean seeks medical advice by asking Logan (Harley Bonner) whether he's capable of having sex with Ziggy.

Logan offers up a benchmark for Dean's progress, suggesting that he'll be ready around the time that he's also able to climb a set of stairs.

This fuels Dean's desire to make progress and Ziggy is surprised to find him in excruciating pain as he tries to take the first steps up the stairs to Salt.

Dean manages five steps, but Ziggy convinces him to stop before he causes any further damage to himself.

Ziggy doesn't understand Dean's true motives in wanting to conquer the stairs, so he gently explains how much he misses being with her intimately.

Both agree how much they want it, so they resolve to focus on this ambition as soon as Dean's next surgery is over and done with. Will they get what they want?
