Neighbours, Elly Conway, Pierce Greyson, Chloe Brennan

With her trial about to begin, Elly Conway is left reeling when she accidentally overhears a conversation between Chloe and Pierce on Neighbours...

Elly Conway's (played by Jodi Anasta) day in court is fast approaching on Neighbours (1:45pm/5:30pm on Channel 5, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings).

Elly's lawyer, Toadie Rebecchi (Ryan Maloney) has been busy preparing her defence and hopes they stand a good chance in front of the judge.

Toadie has gathered character references from Elly's nearest and dearest, but Elly is still feeling nervous.

She knows she DIDN'T murder twisted Finn Kelly but there's still a chance she could be sent to prison...

At least Elly can count on the support of her best friend, Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly) during this difficult time. Or can she?

What does Chloe say to Pierce that leaves Elly shocked on Neighbours?

When Elly pops round to Number 24 to pick-up her baby daughter, Aster, from Chloe and her husband, Pierce Greyson (Tim Robards), she's in for a SHOCK when she accidentally overhears a private conversation between the couple.

But WHAT do they say?

Neighbours, Paul Robinson, Terese Willis, David Tanaka

Paul's family discover the truth about his dodgy dealings on Neighbours...

Meanwhile, the truth is OUT about Paul's previous dealings with criminal, Mannix Foster (Sam Webb).

Let's just say, Paul's family are not impressed.

Having already had Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson) handling stolen goods for him, Aaron's husband and Paul's son, David Tanaka, (Takaya Honda) is furious!

How is Paul going to get out of this one and back in his family's good books?

Neighbours continues every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1:45pm/5:30pm on Channel 5

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?

Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!

Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy.

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.

Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)

And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
