Chloe starts to feel out of her depth when she attends an ultrasound appointment with pregnant girlfriend Elly on Neighbours

Chloe Brennan's (played by April Rose Pengilly) romance with Elly Conway (Jodi Anasta) is FINALLY up and running on  Neighbours (opens in new tab).

However, the new relationship already comes with some big built-in baggage, since Elly is pregnant after her one-night stand with Shaun Watkins who has since moved back to Switzerland.

After housemate Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan) wonders if Chloe has fully considered the challenges of dating a pregnant woman, she starts to realise she is out of her depth when she accompanies Elly to her ultrasound appointment.

However, Chloe has waited months to finally get together with her bestie gal pal, so she's determined to find out all she can about being preggers so she can support Elly along the way. But could it all be too much, too soon?

Meanwhile, Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson) is worried that brother Mark (Scott McGregor) still hasn't really come to terms with the fact his soon-to-be ex-wife Elly is now dating his sister. Awkward!

Elsewhere in Ramsay Street, Yashvi Rebecchi (Olivia Junkeer) and her dad Shane (Nicholas Coghlan) remain at odds after their argument about the teenager's recent rebellion.

Shane decides to try and make amends with Yashvi. But he's not impressed when he catches his daughter half-dressed over at boyfriend Ned Willis's (Ben Hall) house. Is there more trouble to come between dad and daughter?

Things are looking up when an attractive woman, Carmen Del Close (Veronica Thomas) comes into the Back Lane bar and seems to take a fancy to BOTH of them!

But is Carmen to be trusted?
