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

Home and Away has hinted that Jai Simmons may soon be returning to Summer Bay.

Dean Thompson's son made an abrupt departure from his life several weeks ago after his mum Amber (Madeleine Jevic) decided to take him away.

Amber felt that she couldn't trust Dean (Patrick O'Connor) anymore after he made an ill-fated attempt to kidnap Jai.

She had also grown fed up with the constant arguments between Dean and her mum Francesca, which were taking their toll on Jai.

In Thursday's triple bill of episodes on Channel 7 in Australia (February 25), Amber finally reappeared in the Bay.

Amber arrived under instruction from a newly-returned Willow Harris (Sarah Roberts), who wanted to help turn Dean's life around again.

Much to Dean's surprise, Amber confirmed that she no longer wanted to cut him off from Jai.

After seeking some reassurances from Dean that they could get things back on an even keel, Amber confirmed that she'd be in touch again to discuss his future access to Jai.

Young actor River Jarvis played the role of Jai for his initial stint and is expected to return on screen as part of this storyline.

Jai's comeback could provide a positive direction for Dean's life again, after he recently saw his friend Colby Thorne get sentenced to 25 years in prison.

Dean has also struggled to see his ex-girlfriend Ziggy Astoni move on with Tane Parata.

Home and Away fans in the UK will see Amber's return on Channel 5 in March.

Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia). Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
