Home and Away’s Roo Stewart reaches out to newcomers Maddy and Spencer, and offers them a place to stay in Summer Bay. Kassandra Clementi and Andrew Morley (pictured) are set to arrive on screen in Australia this week as young runaways who set up camp in the local high school because they have nowhere else to go.

Sasha Bezmel (Demi Harman) discovers their hideaway, and shares her concerns with Roo (Georgie Parker), who thinks they should take the gentle approach, and leave a note with contact details for them.

Kassandra told TV Week: “They’re on the run and they’ve got a secret which they’re trying to cover up. At first, they’re very reserved about Roo’s offer, because they know that living with others comes with the closeness that may reveal their secret. But when Maddy gets ill they have no one else to turn to.

Kassandra added: “They go back and forth, with Maddy saying, ‘I’m sick, we need to do something, but we also need to do what we came here to do’.”

The runaways will arrive on screen in the UK on the Channel 5 soap later this year.
