Home and Away fans could win a date with the hunky River Boys when they arrive in the UK.
Steve Peacocke (Darryl ‘Brax’ Braxton), Dan Ewing (Heath Braxton) and Lincoln Younes (Casey Braxton) will all feature in the storyline, which is being shot in London in October.
The Australian soap’s UK broadcaster Channel 5 has launched a competition, where one lucky fan can enjoy a meal with one of the River Boys at a five-star hotel in the capital.
Viewers can be in with a chance of winning by visiting www.channel5.com/riverboys and uploading a video of themselves giving a chat-up line for the boys.
Five favourites will then be selected, and these will go head-to-head in a public vote.
Details of the ‘dramatic’ plot – which is to screen in 2014 – is being kept under wraps, but according to the show’s bosses, the characters involved will be ’embarking on a desperate fight to hang onto what is most important in life – love and family.’
Home and Away’s producer Lucy Addario said: “We are thrilled that Home And Away will be returning to London to shoot this exciting storyline. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to bring the heart and soul of Summer Bay to the home of our loyal UK audience.”
The last time Home And Away filmed episodes in the UK was in 2001, when Donald Fisher (Norman Coburn) headed across the world to launch his book. He was joined by Irene Roberts (Lynne McGranger), Marilyn Chambers (Emily Symons), Hayley Smith (Bec Cartwright) and Nick Smith (Chris Egan).
Home and Away also shot scenes in Ironbridge, Shropshire in 1998.
