Major Home and Away spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.

Home and Away will see Witness X flee from Summer Bay after testifying against Colby Thorne.

On Australian screens right now, Colby Thorne (Tim Franklin) is facing trial over the murder of Ross Nixon. The trial was going well until Witness X took the stand – with Colby, Bella Thorne (Courtney Miller), and Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor) all stunned to see the witness unveiled as Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts).

In scenes airing later this week (via TV Week), Colby accepts his fate and confesses in court that he killed Ross – but says that nobody else was involved, protecting his friends.

The killer is handed a 25-year prison sentence, despite Dean wanting to confess his involvement in the crime. Bella is devastated.

Afterwards, Willow tries to speak with Bella and Dean, but they are not interested in what she has to say.

Willow then makes the decision to leave Summer Bay. She tells Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost) and Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger) of her plans, and then makes her exit – although it is unclear whether or not she is gone for good.

UK viewers will have to wait until early 2021 to see the trial and the aftermath unfold.

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
