There's a romantic surprise in store for Chloe Brennan on Neighbours when her boyfriend Pierce Greyson unexpectedly pops the question!

It's Melbourne Cup day and Chloe Brennan (played by April Rose Pengilly) is feeling excited but nervous on Neighbours (1:45pm/5:30pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide for full listings) as this is her first big event as the new Acting Manager of Lassiters since her boss Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou) stepped down from the job because of the sex tape scandal.

But there's another reason Chloe is feeling nervous, since she is also secretly planning to pop the question to businessman boyfriend Pierce Greyson (Tim Robards)...

However, little does Chloe know that Pierce has a romantic surprise of his own planned.

With the celebrations in full swing, Pierce gets down on bended knee and asks Chloe to marry him!
