Neighbours spoilers: Can Terese and Leo keep their hook-up a secret?

Neighbours, Terese Willis, Leo Tanaka

Is Terese and Leo's steamy session at Lassiters a one-off? Or is this just the start of a hot new affair in Erinsborough?

As Aaron and David's wedding reception gets underway at The Waterhole, nobody notices David's brother Leo is missing in action, since he is in bed with his dad Paul's ex-lady, Terese!

Although Leo and Terese both clearly enjoyed finally giving into all that unreleased tension between them, Leo soon realises starting a relationship with Terese could be very complicated. He sneaks back to the wedding party just in time to hear a speech from Paul about how his life has changed since he met his two long-lost sons David and Leo, who were kept a secret from him for 30 years.

Feeling guilty about betraying Paul in this way, will Leo break things off with Terese before they have even begun?

Elsewhere in Erinsborough, Karl wastes no time in getting to know his long-lost sibling Jemima, even asking her to move into the Kennedy house! But Susan is instantly suspicious of the newcomer, especially since Jemima wasn't interested in making a connection when Karl first contacted her while exploring his family tree.

Meanwhile, knowing that Huntington's disease is hereditary, Chloe keeps a close eye on her mum Fay for signs of the incurable brain disorder...

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

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?

Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!
