Home and Away fans are up in arms over a recent storyline, with one person going so far as to say it’s “giving Summer Bay a bad name”.

Much of the show at the moment centres around a storyline involving Bella Nixon and her boyfriend Nikau Parata, who recently signed up to a modelling agency to boost his portfolio.

And it looks like the start of his new career journey may mean his relationship with Bella is about to take a rocky turn, after he slept with his agent, Sienna.

“Not a fan of the modelling storyline at all,” one person said.

“No it's awful. Home and Away used to be exciting back in the day,” another said.

One person wrote: “Is this rubbish ever going to be over?”

“Starting to look like a late-night show, than a lunch time one,” another wrote, with a commenter saying: "What happened to our family friendly show??”

Others pointed out that Home and Away has always had controversial storylines and that’s why they love it.

Indeed, over the years fans have watched as cult storylines, stabbings and kidnaps have played out on screen.

Who could forget the caravan park explosion in 2016 or when Casey was shot dead while attempting to save his kidnapped half-sibling Josh in 2014?

Others loved the new storyline, commenting with fire emojis and saying they felt sorry for Bella.
