Neighbours spoilers: Scarlett Brady gets SACKED!
Scarlett Brady is shocked when Lassiters boss Paul Robinson sacks her on Neighbours. But she soon finds a way to turn the tables on Paul...
After the brick-through-the-window incident at Number 32, scheming Scarlett Brady (played by Christie Whelan Browne) has all the housemates fooled into thinking she is being stalked by her ex-fiance, Rex on Neighbours (1:45pm/5:30pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings).
Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan) reveals the housemates have set up a roster and will take it in turns to accompany Scarlett so she isn't by herself.
Scarlett uses the situation to her advantage, by flirting with Kyle to make the object of her affections, Ned Willis (Ben Hall) jealous. And it's not long before her plan works and loyal Ned is by her side again.
However, could it be that Scarlett's luck is about to run out?
Lassiters boss Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) becomes suspicious when he notices Scarlett failed to provide any job references when she was hired at the hotel.
Then when Paul digs a bit deeper, he discovers she lied about having previous hotel experience. So he SACKS her on the spot!
But Paul is thrown when Scarlett unexpectedly finds a way to turn the tables on him. What does she know? And what does she want?
Elsewhere in Erinsborough, Sheila Canning (Colette Mann) is wondering if she stands another chance with ex-boyfriend Clive Gibbons (Geoff Paine) after their heated argument... and unexpected kiss!
Sheila's son Gary (Damien Richardson) warns his mum not to get her hopes up, since Clive is now in a relationship with Dr Beverly Robinson (Shaunna O'Grady).
But Sheila's out to get her man! With unresolved feelings between the pair, will one thing lead to another between Sheila and Clive?
Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5
