Neighbours spoilers: Elly Conway gets SHOCK news... but about WHO?

Neighbours, Elly Conway

Alarming news reaches the Kennedy house on Neighbours when Elly Conway and Finn Kelly discover Finn's brother Shaun is missing after an avalanche...

Things are rather awkward between Bea Nilsson (played by Bonnie Anderson) and Finn Kelly (Rob Mills) on Neighbours (1:45pm/5:30pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings), after she accidentally called her boyfriend "Patrick" during an argument.

"Patrick Ashton" was the fake name Finn used when he was plotting revenge against those he blamed for his downfall, including Bea and her older sister Elly Conway (Jodi Anasta).

Remember when Finn was a baddie and Susan shoved him off a clifftop on Neighbours!

With the ever-wise Karl Kennedy (Alan Fletcher) and his wife Susan (Jackie Woodburne) both away at the moment, it's left to Elly to play peacekeeper between the pair.

Bea remains confused about why she referred to "Patrick". Could it be that she's not really over all the terrible things Finn did in the past in the name of revenge?

Meanwhile, Finn feels he needs the listening ear of his brother Shaun Watkins (Brad Moller) who has gone back home to Switzerland for a visit.

However, all other issues are brushed aside when SHOCK news reaches the Kennedy house. There's been an avalanche in Switzerland and Shaun, who is also the father of Elly's unborn baby, has gone missing...

Elly Conway's baby daddy Shaun Watkins has gone missing after an avalanche in Switzerland on Neighbours...

Elsewhere on Ramsay Street, Sheila Canning (Colette Mann) has a spring in her step and reveals to co-worker Roxy Willis (Zima Anderson) that she and ex-boyfriend Clive Gibbons (Geoff Paine) have got back together again!

It's only a matter of time before Clive returns from the medical conference, where he plans to break-up with current girlfriend Dr Beverly Robinson (Shaunna O'Grady).

However, when Roxy warns Sheila to make sure she is the ONLY woman on Clive's mind, Sheila decides to send Clive a raunchy photo to show him what he's missing back in Erinsborough.

Unfortunately, moments after sending her sext, Sheila realises she's sent the photo to her son, Gary (Damien Richardson) by mistake. Whoops!

Can Sheila get her hands on Gary's phone and delete the photo before her son accidentally sees more of his mum than a grown man can take?

ALSO, Toadie Rebecchi (Ryan Maloney) is impressed after his niece, Kirsha Rebecchi (Vani Dhir) helps him out with some free accounting software, and streamlines all his accounts for the garden nursery, charity Foundation and his law firm.
