Andrea is hiding out with prison guard Owen on Neighbours

Andrea is hiding out in an abandoned house with Hugo and dodgy prison guard, Owen Campbell (played by ex-Home and Away star Johnny Ruffo), who helped with Andrea's escape from prison.

But help could be at hand for Toadie from an unlikely person...

Andrea and Dee's criminal mum, Heather Schilling (Kerry Armstrong) makes a suprise discovery in the prison garden, which could help lead the police to Andrea and Hugo.

But now Heather faces a test of loyalties. Will she help Andrea or Toadie?

Neighbours, Toadie Rebecchi, Levi Canning

Levi has just arrived in Erinsborough. But he's thrown straight into helping Toadie find his kidnapped son Hugo on Neighbours!

Meanwhile, Sheila Canning (Colette Mann) hasn't exactly welcomed her other grandson, Levi Canning (Richie Morris) to Erinsborough.

While Kyle (Chris Milligan) is happy to see his cousin, Levi, who is Erinsborough's newest police constable, Sheila still seems a bit off.

Could it be that Sheila harbours a grudge because Levi is the product of her son, Frank's affair years earlier?

Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm/5:30pm on Channel 5

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.

Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)

And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
