After demanding that Aaron sends Mel packing again, Chloe seeks emotional support from Elly and reveals the shock truth about why she wants nothing to do with her ex-girlfriend...

Meanwhile, following her collapse after planting the new community friendship tree, Sonya Rebecchi is taken to hospital for medical tests.

Sonya's husband Toadie thinks her pain and collapse could be linked to the poisoning she suffered at the hands of the family's wicked nanny Alice Wells last year.

However, when the test results come back, Sonya and Toadie are in for a shock when Dr Karl Kennedy reveals the cause of Sonya's condition. What's wrong with Sonya?

Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm and 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.
