Home and Away spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.
Home and Away has confirmed that Amber Simmons's mother will be heading to Summer Bay this week.
Amber's mum will make her debut on Australian screens on Tuesday (October 13) and in a month's time for UK viewers.
Home and Away bosses have revealed that the new arrival turns up to help celebrate the birthday of her grandson Jai.
She's immediately thrown into tension with Dean Thompson (Patrick O'Connor), disapproving of his criminal past and his new-found involvement in Jai's life.
When Dean gives Jai a bike for his birthday, Amber's mother makes a dig about how it could possibly be stolen.
Jai also reveals that his gran doesn't like surfer guys, believing them to be troublesome, which also clearly reflects her opinion on Dean.
Could the tensions end up ruining the day for Jai?
The arrival of Amber's mum comes after Dean was blocked from introducing his own mother Karen to Jai.
In Monday's Australian episode (October 12), Amber made it very clear to Dean that she didn't trust Karen to play a role in Jai's life.
Although Dean called Karen and left her a voicemail message, revealing that he had something important to tell her, he later backed out when she called him back the next morning.
Dean made out that he'd simply got drunk the night before and went overboard with his message, assuring Karen that there was nothing going on. Will Jai ever get to meet his other gran?
Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 (Australia).
