Neighbours spoilers: Heather Schilling continues the search for "Karen"

Neighbours, Heather Schilling

Despite daughter Andrea's attempts to send Ian packing, scheming Heather decides to secretly carry-on the search for mystery lady, "Karen" (aka Dee?)

Furious with her mum's meddling, Andrea Somers quickly sends ex-lover Ian Packer on his way.

But when Andrea questions Heather on what she was doing with Ian, her mum lies she was only looking out for her daughter.

Worried that obsessed Ian could ruin her plan to get closer to Toadie Rebecchi and their baby son Hugo again, angry Andrea warns Heather to stop interfering.

But Heather's not done meddling just yet. She secretly contacts Ian again, and when she learns new information that could lead to finding the mysterious "Karen" (who might also be Toadie's first wife, Dee), Heather decides she's going to head to Byron Bay and hunt down "Karen" and make sure she doesn't make any trouble for them...

Elsewhere in Erinsborough, Ned Willis is still annoyed as ex-girlfriend Bea Nilsson gets closer to her ex-fiance Finn Kelly again, the man who once made her life hell.

However, after some relationship advice from friend Leo Tanaka, Ned finally begins to realise he could be missing out on a chance for romance right under his nose with neighbour, Yashvi Rebecchi.
