Home and Away spoilers follow from Australian pace episodes, which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.

Home and Away has teased a new shock for Irene Roberts, who's about to be drawn into the drama surrounding Harper and Dana Matheson.

Irene is in for a nasty surprise as she realises that there's much more to her new lodger than meets the eye.

Australian viewers have recently seen Irene welcome Harper into her home after deciding to rent out a room.

Harper seemed like the perfect houseguest, but she was secretly harbouring her sister Dana, who's on the run after being framed by her ex-boyfriend for drug charges.

The Matheson sisters were given breathing space when Irene took time away from the Bay, unwittingly leaving them both with an empty house.

However, a new promo shows that Irene will be back home in next week's Australian episodes – and it doesn't take long for her to rumble Harper's secret.

Fortunately, it seems that Irene will give the siblings the benefit of the doubt after a chat with local policeman Cash Newman, who's also secretly helping them.

Irene tells Harper: "I'm not the kind of person to throw two innocent women to the wolves."

Meanwhile, another tense clip shows corrupt policeman Detective Will Madden try to arrest Harper under suspicion of helping Dana.

This prompts Dana to come out of hiding and hand herself over, potentially sealing her fate.

Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 in October.

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.45pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6.30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.

In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 and streams on 7plus.

Selected classic episodes are available via Prime Video in the UK.
