Elly Conway is impressed by Shaun Watkins's plan to stick around and be a proper dad to their baby on Neighbours... and finds herself kissing him!

Elly Conway (played by Jodi Anasta) has had her doubts about baby daddy Shaun Watkins (Brad Moller) in the past on Neighbours (1:45pm/5:30pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings).

But after Shaun recently tore up the custody papers, his mum was pressuring him to get pregnant Elly to sign, and announced his plans to stick around in Erinsborough and be a proper dad to their baby, Elly has begun to believe he's not so bad after all.

When Shaun helps school teacher Elly clean-up after the school dance, they share a moment of frisson as Shaun plucks a decoration from hair.

Then later, back at the Kennedy house, Elly is once again impressed by Shaun's commitment to their baby and finds herself moving in for a kiss!

Elsewhere in Erinsborough, businessman Pierce Greyson (Tim Robards) is furious with his teenage son Hendrix (Benny Turland), after the lad's behaviour at the school dance - getting drunk, forcing a kiss on classmate Harlow Robinson (Jemma Donovan) and loudly and publicly criticizing Pierce's parenting skills.

But the morning after the night before, unruly Hendrix is in for a rude awakening when he discovers his dad has organised a cleaning job for him at Lassiters in order to pay for the costs he racked up throwing his private pre-dance party and trashing the room!

Hendrix is not impressed when he discovers his dad Pierce has landed him a job at Lassiters on Neighbours!

But will Pierce's latest parenting strategy be enough to keep Hendrix on the straight and narrow?

Meanwhile, Shane Rebecchi (Nicholas Coghlan) supports Mackenzie Hargreaves (Georgie Stone) after her dad Grant (Paul Mercurio) was a no-show for the dad-daughter dance.

But is Shane's guilt over his actions all those years ago still getting the better of him?

And it looks like it's going to be changing times at the Brennan house, when brothers Mark (Scott McGregor) and Aaron (Matt Wilson) return home after their trip to Adelaide to spend time with their mum, Fay.

They know that one of them will have to leave Erinsborough to look after their mum on a permanent basis - but WHO will it be?

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