Neighbours spoilers: Scarlett Brady makes a move on Ned Willis!
Scarlett Brady is not taking no for an answer where Ned Willis is concerned on Neighbours. And it looks like she's about to get her man!
In the aftermath of the SHOCK motorbike hit-and-run incident on Neighbours (1:45pm/5:30pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings), Ned Willis (played by Ben Hall) has been left with a dislocated shoulder...
Still unaware of Scarlett Brady's (Christie Whelan Browne) scheming, at first Ned refuses to go to hospital.
But when he returns home to Number 22 and Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) and Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou) see what a state he's in, Ned is sent for medical attention and ordered to stay in hospital overnight.
But the "accident" means Scarlett once again has Ned exactly where she wants him. She wastes no time in suggesting he move into Number 32, where owners Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson) and his hubby, David Tanaka (Takaya Honda) have just installed a new security alarm system.
After Ned agrees, Scarlett is only too happy to play nurse and help the injured fella get back on his feet.
As naked Ned takes a bath, a seductive Scarlett makes a move on him...
Meanwhile, Finn Kelly (Rob Mills) is awaiting the return of his brother Shaun Watkins (Brad Moller) from Switzerland to get the ball rolling on their Buddy Program for Toadie Rebecchi's (Ryan Maloney) charity Foundation.
However, an unexpected problem arises when Finn points out a potential tax problem. Is Toadie's charity Foundation in trouble?
Elsewhere, Bea Nilsson (Bonnie Anderson) is becoming increasingly suspicious of Scarlett following the latest drama involving her ex-boyfriend, Ned.
When friends Amy Williams (Zoe Cramond) and Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan) admit there have been some strange incidents involving housemate Scarlett over at Number 32, Bea decides to investigate further.
However, she's left fuming when her boyfriend Finn attempts to shutdown her internet snooping on Scarlett, worried Bea is getting herself involved in a dangerous situation.
Annoyed by his interference, the couple have a big row in front of Bea's older sister Elly Conway (Jodi Anasta), who is SHOCKED when Bea accidentally calls Finn "Patrick" by mistake - the fake name he used when he was plotting revenge against Bea, Elly and their family...
Could this mean Bea still hasn't fully moved on from Finn's villainous past?
Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5
