Neighbours spoilers: Ned Willis punches Shaun Watkins!

Neighbours, Ned Willis, Shaun Watkins

When Shaun refuses to send his twisted brother Finn packing from Erinsborough, Ned snaps and punches him in the middle of the street!

Ned Willis has a hate-hate relationship with Finn Kelly, the twisted ex-fiancee of Ned's now girlfriend Bea Nilsson. With Finn appearing to have amnesia since he woke from his coma recently, there's a danger the treacherous former teacher will avoid being brought to justice for his previous crimes, which include trying to kill Bea, her older sister Elly Conway and their aunt Susan Kennedy. But Ned is determined to see justice served!

Ned is shocked when Finn arrives in Ramsay Street under police guard. It's all part of doctor Karl Kennedy's plan to help trigger Finn's memory by taking him to key locations in Erinsborough he previously visited, including Ramsay Street, Erinsborough High School and the local garage.

However, worried about the effect Finn's presence could have on Bea, who still hasn't completely got over the way Finn manipulated her in the name of revenge, Ned confronts Finn's half-brother Shaun Watkins and urges him to help send Finn packing from Erinsborough for everybody's sake.

But when Shaun refuses to help, Ned loses his cool and punches Shaun! Has he just made a bad situation even worse?

Meanwhile, Ned's legal eagle sister Imogen Willis risks causing a commotion in Ramsay Street too, when she offers to be Finn's defense lawyer, even after everything he's done to her friends and neighbours. Uh-oh Imogen, you're playing with fire!

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