Neighbours spoilers: Ned Willis ATTACKS Yashvi Rebecchi!
Haunted by nightmares of stalker Scarlett Brady on Neighbours, a disturbed Ned Willis accidentally lashes out at ex-girlfriend Yashvi Rebecchi...
Scary stalker Scarlett Brady may now be locked-up on Neighbours (1:45pm/5:30pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings). But Ned Willis (played by Ben Hall) is still deeply shaken by his final encounter with Scarlett on Halloween, when she stabbed Ned and chased him through a mystery maze.
Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou) wonders if Ned has some post traumatic stress after his near-death experience and suggests he goes for counselling.
However, Ned is determined to put on a brave face and get through the aftermath his own way. The trouble is, every time he falls asleep he's haunted by violent nightmares of Scarlett on the loose in her wedding dress, armed with a sharp knife, chasing him through the mystery maze over and over.
It's a nightmare on Ramsay Street!
Despite their bad break-up, Ned's ex-girlfriend Yashvi Rebecchi (Olivia Junkeer) decides to do what she can to help him.
Unfortunately, when Yashvi heads over to Number 22 and tries to wake Ned from another violent nightmare, he accidentally mistakes Yashvi for Scarlett... and lashes out!
Meanwhile, unaware of Prue Wallace's (Denise Van Outen) cruel comments about his ex-fiancee Amy Williams (Zoe Cramond) and the sex tape scandal, Gary Canning (Damien Richardson) strikes up a conversation with Prue down at The Waterhole.
And after a few drinks together, Gary and Prue are soon locking lips!
But how will the residents of Number 22 react, particularly Prue's daughter Harlow Robinson (Jemma Donovan) when they discover Gary has been canoodling... and kissing the enemy?
Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5
