Though he had the opportunity to arrest Ross, Colby instead chose to shoot him dead in revenge – and Dean (Patrick O’Connor) later helped him bury the body.
Now, it appears the decaying corpse has been found, with Angelo called in to investigate.
“I never thought my homecoming would be to investigate a murder,” Angelo says in the first glimpse of his return.
Suffice to say, both Colby and Dean aren’t particularly impressed with Angelo coming back to the small town.
“You’re the one that got us in this mess!” Dean fumes, as Colby hits back, “And I’m the one who can get us out of it!”
Earlier this year, Luke confirmed his return via a video posted to his Instagram account.
“Hey guys, I’m back. It’s Angelo Rosetta here - or Luke Jacobz,” he said in the footage. “I am coming back to the Bay. I am very excited.”
The former Heartbreak High star further revealed his excitement about reprising his old gig in the Instagram caption.
“The secret's out.. I’m absolutely thrilled to be coming back to Home and Away!” he wrote.
“Angelo will be back as the drama continues in the Bay. Keep watching, weeknights on Ch7.”
During his original stint on Home and Away, Luke played Angelo from 2008 to 2011 before heading off to Hollywood to try his luck.
Since leaving the show, he has hosted The X Factor, The Proposal and Instant Hotel and in 2019 he competed on season five of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
