The DNA test results confirm lookie-likies Andrea and Dee are twins and Heather is Dee's mum. But the mystery isn't fully solved just yet...

Ever since they came face-to-face on that clifftop on Neighbours (opens in new tab), Andrea Somers and Dee Bliss (both played by Madeleine West) have been wondering why they both look so similar. Could they be related?

With Andrea and her mum Heather Schilling (Kerry Armstrong) both now in prison for their crimes, it's a bitter-sweet moment for Dee when the DNA test results confirm she and Andrea are identical twins and Heather is their mum.

But there's a problem... mixed-up Heather has no recollection of giving birth to twins. And the plot thickens when legal eagle Toadie Rebecchi (Ryan Maloney) investigates and discovers there is no record of Heather having given birth where she claims, at a hospital in Perth!

Could the mystery red headed woman that both Dee and Andrea can recall from their childhood hold the key to what's going on? And will Heather agree to go under hypnosis to find out more?

Meanwhile, there's a BIG fallout from Roxy Willis's (Zima Anderson) attempted seduction of Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis).

Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou) is not impressed when she finds out what her naughty niece has done - especially as Terese has just got engaged to Paul.

Feeling like she has messed-up BIG TIME, Roxy decides to pack her bags and plans to leave Erinsborough!

Elsewhere, tempers flare when Gary Canning (Damien Richardson) discovers how both Paul and his own mum Sheila (Colette Mann) were secretly attempting to sabotage Gary and fiancee Amy Williams's (Zoe Cramond) relationship.

Gary goes on the warpath and clashes with Paul. But is angry Gary the guilty culprit when later that night someone violently attacks Paul and leaves him for dead...

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