Neighbours spoilers: Toadie Rebecchi vs Andrea Somers over Hugo
Toadie forbids hated conwoman Andrea access to their baby son Hugo... but she is determined to see him one way or another...
Toadie Rebecchi can't believe his eyes when he is face-to-face again with Andrea Somers, the lookalike conwoman, who almost wrecked his marriage to Sonya when she pretended to be his dead first wife, Dee Bliss.
Toadie feels betrayed by his brother Shane and his wife Dipi, who have secretly been working with policeman Mark Brennan to track down Andrea, who may hold the key to finding the REAL Dee Bliss, who she claims may still be alive, despite being presumed drowned in 2003!
In exchange for helping to solve the mystery of Dee, Andrea wants access to see her and Toadie's baby son, Hugo. But the angry legal eagle warns Andrea there's no way he's letting her anywhere near Hugo after all the terrible things both Andrea and her mother Alice Wells (aka Heather Schilling) have done.
So will all hell break loose when Andrea tries to embrace Hugo while he's in The Waterhole with Toadie and neighbour, Sheila Canning?
Meanwhile, still unaware her boyfriend Vance Abernethy's prized racehorse is stolen, Roxy Willis thinks she's doing Vance a favour by trying to find a new buyer for the horse.
And she's set her sights on 'ol money bags himself, Mr Paul Robinson!
