Home and Away Nikau Parata and Bella Nixon’s romance on Home and Away appears to be in serious peril.
In Thursday’s triple-header of episodes in Australia (June 3), the young couple continued to grow apart as Nikau’s new profession became his primary center of attention.
Nikau (Kawakawa Fox-Reo) has begun working as a model, and despite his early apprehensions, he is now enthusiastic about the possibility to help create a better living for his family.
Unfortunately, Nikau’s dedication has led him down a perilous road, which includes overworking himself with workouts and missing meals.
Despite the fact that Bella (Courtney Miller) is ignorant of this, Nikau’s fixation with his appearance and growing his social media profile has caught her attention.
The final straw came in the most recent episodes of the program when Nikau teamed up with his controlling agent Sienna Blake (Rose Riley) and fellow model Allegra Freeman (Laura McDonald) to stage a promotional event in order to get more online followers.
Nikau, with the aid of Sienna, planned a poolside party that would be broadcast extensively on social media.
Bella lost patience with her boyfriend’s clear transformation and labeled the entire scenario “false” while Nikau obsesses over every tiny aspect of the day.
Bella ultimately snapped and told Nikau: “In a disagreement that threatened to jeopardize their future, Bella eventually snapped and told Nikau: “You’re morphing into a self-conscious, social media-obsessed phony. Nik, you’re evolving, and I’m not fond of it.”
Will Nikau and Bella be able to work past this, or will the tension between them simply become worse?
These scenes will air on Channel 5 in early July for Home and Away fans in the United Kingdom.
Home and Away airs on Channel 5 (UK) weekdays at 1.15 pm and 6 pm and on Channel 7 (UK) Monday to Thursday at 7 pm (Australia).
