Boys do battle over Indi

Indi may have admitted defeat to Ruby when it comes to Romeo, but word has reached us that it won't be long before the boys are back to fighting over her.

In fact, Summer Bay becomes the scene for an explosive showdown between best mates when Indi cancels plans with Romeo to instead spend time with Liam - starting a friendship that threatens to turn into something more.

Axle Whitehead, who plays Liam, tells TV Week: 'Both [Liam and Indi] have just come out of broken marriages, and they form this friendship and a pact to look after each other.'

But, in supporting Indi, Liam also manages to break the cardinal rule about not hooking up with a friend's ex. 'Every time we think Liam is seeking redemption, he's nearly there and everything is going well and he has a good job, drugs or women get in his road and he seems to always choose the bad way,' Axle adds.

As the tension simmers between Indi and Liam, it isn't long before Romeo begins to suspect there's something amiss. 'He sees the chemistry between them and he sees them mucking around outside Angelo's together, and there comes a point where he has to say something. Romeo calls Liam on it and then makes a huge scene at Angelo's, while Indi and Liam are left thinking, "What do we do?"'

So, are Indi and Liam set to become Summer Bay's hottest new couple? 'You'll just have to wait and see,' Axle teases, 'but there's a recipe for a lot of stuff to go wrong. It's a really exciting storyline with what ends up happening and who is involved in it.'
