Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.

Home and Away's Nikau Parata upsets his uncle Ari on UK screens next week by questioning his suitability for adopting a child.

Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) makes a hurtful remark as he accuses Ari of not showing enough loyalty to their own family.

Upcoming episodes see Ari (Rob Kipa-Williams) and his partner Mia (Anna Samson) decide to start focusing more on their adoption dream.

The couple invite John Palmer (Shane Withington) over for dinner to pick up some tips based on his experiences fostering Jett James.

Although John points out that his expertise will be limited as adoption and fostering are different, he does provide plenty of encouragement.

The next day, Ari and Mia tell Nikau about their plans.

Nikau is supportive at first, but turns cold towards his uncle when he finds out that Ari has helped Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) to move in with Ziggy Astoni (Sophie Dillman) at the farmhouse.

Dean is staying with Ziggy to continue his recovery after the recent car crash.

Nikau is unhappy that Ari was involved, claiming that he should be more loyal to his brother Tane (Ethan Browne), who recently split from Ziggy.

As the Parata family argument turns personal, Nikau harshly asks when the authorities started allowing ex-convicts to adopt children.

Ari and Mia are both stunned, as they hadn't considered the possibility that Ari's past could affect their chances.

The pair turn back to John for advice and are relieved to hear that they'll still be in with a chance of impressing the adoption agency.
