Neighbours, Sonya Rebecchi

Could Toadie's first wife Dee really still be alive after all this time? Sonya reveals new information which could change everything...

Ever since Sonya Rebecchi confronted conwoman Andrea Somers at the psychiatric ward over custody of baby Hugo, she's been troubled by cryptic comments from Andrea about Toadie's first wife, Dee Bliss.

Unsure what to do, Sonya confides in Toadie's brother Shane about how Andrea told her about an encounter in Hobart when a stranger mistook her for someone else - a woman who looks just like her! After all this time, could it be true Dee really is alive?

If Dee did survive the car crash on her and Toadie's doomed wedding day years ago, where has she been all this time and why has she never returned to Ramsay Street?

Seeing the way Mark is behaving, his brother Aaron tries to convince the copper to sort out his priorities... or else he might not be engaged for much longer...

Meanwhile, Chloe Brennan is still loved-up with girlfriend Mel Lohan, despite their neighbour Bea Nilsson's shock accusation that Mel may have had something to do with the fire at the garage.

However, when Chloe accidentally discovers evidence that could link Mel to the fire, she confronts her. But will Mel admit to what she's done?

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.

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.
