    Home and Away's Theo stands up to his father following years of abuse: "Get out of my life!"
    ''All his frustration and hatred comes out.''

    https://www.nowtolove.com.au/celebri...-dimitri-71722

    The shocking truth about Dimitri's past lands with a thump ? literally ? this week when Theo aims a flying punch at his estranged father.

    In tense scenes in Home And Away, Dimitri (Salvatore Coco) arrives in Summer Bay with one goal in mind: taking Theo (Matt Evans) home.

    Theo's aunt Leah (Ada Nicodemou) orchestrated the surprise visit, hoping to reconcile father and son.

    But she doesn't know the grim reasons for their estrangement ? Dimitri has a history of abuse and, when his aggression became too much for Theo, the teen fled to the Bay.

    Will he tell his aunt the truth?

    "Theo was a victim of both physical and mental manipulation from a young age," Matt 25, tells TV WEEK. "The physical abuse started when he was 14. When his father didn't get his way, he would lose his temper."

    Dimitri assures Leah he's there to make amends, but his behaviour suggests otherwise. He orders Theo to pack his bags, before accusing Leah of meddling in his family business.

    He also implies that she was the reason Theo's mother asked him for a divorce.

    Later at the Surf Club, Dimitri meets John (Shane Withington) ? the only one Theo has confided in about his dad. Their brittle encounter leaves Leah and Justin (James Stewart) perplexed and wanting to know the truth.

    Sensing John knows more than he's letting on, Dimitri probes for information. John remains cordial in answering questions about Theo's time in the Bay ? but makes a not-so subtle mention of his troubled upbringing.

    When John brings up Theo's community service, Dimitri snaps.

    Elsewhere, Theo is momentarily distracted after spending the night with Chloe (Sam Barrett). Giddy with hope, he suggests they go out on a date, but is taken aback when she appears uninterested and implies that their night together was a mistake.

    Hurt and confused by the interaction, Theo decides to walk off his feelings on the beach when he comes across Dimitri having words with Justin and Leah. His anger boils over and he charges at his father, striking him.

    "This [Chloe's rejection] is a massive part of Theo punching his father," Matt explains.

    "All his frustration and hatred comes out when he gets used by Chloe, as he really had feelings for her. It tips him over the edge."

    Home and Away ties up loose end from Theo and Dimitri storyline
    Dimitri's sentence is revealed.

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/hom...tri-loose-end/

    Home and Away spoilers follow from Tuesday's Australian episode (May 3), which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.

    Home and Away has revealed the outcome of Theo Poulos reporting his father Dimitri for his abusive behaviour.

    A big storyline this year has seen Theo bravely open up over his traumatic past, explaining that Dimitri was violent towards him when he was growing up.

    Recent episodes in Australia saw this story come to a head as Dimitri paid a visit to Summer Bay and violently attacked Justin Morgan.

    When this became a police matter, Theo told the authorities that it wasn't the first time that Dimitri had lost his temper like this. He then gave an official statement about the abuse he experienced as a child.

    In Tuesday's episode on Channel 7 (May 3), Leah Patterson revealed that Dimitri had finally faced the consequences and been sentenced in court.

    During a shift at the Diner, Leah told Irene Roberts: "Dimitri got a good behaviour bond for two years, plus he has to attend an anger management course.

    "Hopefully it will help Theo to move on."

    Unfortunately, Theo immediately faced another upsetting setback when he learned that he'd failed his first TAFE (Technical and Further Education) assignment.

    Theo is currently undertaking a mechanic's apprenticeship, but made an early mistake by not handing in his first assignment on time.

    Theo's colleague Ziggy Astoni and friend Ryder Jackson were both supportive, pointing out how much pressure he has been under recently.

    Despite this, a disheartened Theo admitted that he was ready to throw in the towel and walk away from the training altogether. Can his loved ones talk him around?

    Home and Away fans in the UK will see these scenes on Channel 5 in June.

    Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6.30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.

    In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 and streams on 7plus.

    Home and Away star Matt Evans shows off his singing talents for Theo Poulos storyline
    Theo sings to Chloe as the pair grow closer.

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/hom...-singing-theo/

    Home and Away spoilers follow for UK viewers.

    Home and Away star Matt Evans showcased his singing abilities as his character Theo Poulos continues his attempts to win over Chloe Anderson (Sam Barrett).

    Shared via the official Home and Away Instagram account, the clip shows the two sharing a picnic together as Theo continues to grow closer to his on-off love interest Chloe.

    In scenes that will air in the UK next month, Theo picks up a guitar he's borrowed from Justin, with Chloe admitting she wasn't aware he could play the instrument before asking him to play her a song.

    He begins to play and sing a heartfelt number while Chloe watches on smiling, unable to hide that she's impressed.

    Theo's singing abilities shouldn't come as a surprise to Home and Away fans, considering that, before joining the show, Evans was better known in Australia as a musician.

    He competed on the 2020 series of The Voice Australia before joining the soap a year later in his first-ever acting role.

    However, things are currently not going smoothly for the pair's budding relationship. Upcoming episodes airing in the UK will see Chloe decide to prioritise her manipulation of her friend Bella instead of pursuing a relationship with Theo.

    This is not the only drama for Theo either, as viewers will see the fallout after Theo's abusive father Dimitri came to the Bay.

    Home and Away airs weekdays at 1.15pm on Channel 5 and 6pm on 5STAR. First-look screenings air at 6.30pm on 5STAR and the show also streams on My5.

    In Australia, the show airs Mondays to Thursdays at 7pm on Channel 7 and streams on 7plus.

    Selected classic episodes are available via Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
