Pia Miller locks lips with Great Gatsby hunk in raunchy new Home and Away scenes

SPOILER ALERT! There is a new heart-throb causing serious heatwaves in Summer Bay.

Confidential spied Pia Miller shooting popular TV soap Home and Away at Sydney’s Barangaroo yesterday..

And it seems her character, Katarina Chapman, has new love in her life.

It seems like only a few weeks ago we spotted the character copying up to Martin ‘Ash’ Ashford on the beach.

With the show shot a few months in advance of episodes going to air, we can reveal her new love interest is played by handsome actor Jake Ryan, 33, known previously for his work on

Underbelly Razor and Baz Luhrman’s The Great Gatsby.

In true soap form, Miller’s character has previously been paired with Dr Nate Cooper — played by Kyle Prior.

In real-life though, the mum-of-two is happily settled with former model boyfriend Tyson Mullane.

It is as yet unclear what kind of drama Ryan’s character will cause on the hit Channel Seven show. Ryan is a former taekwondo champion, who originally dreamt of Olympic glory in Beijing before a serious knee injury forced him to consider another career path.

Confidential understands producers are hoping he will fill the handsome bad boy void left after Stephen Peacocke’s character of Darryl ‘Brax’ Braxton departed the drama in 2015 to pursue acting opportunities in Hollywood.
