Just after calling off his and Terese's wedding, there's a SHOCK for Paul when he finds out who is really out to wreck his future happiness on Neighbours...

It looks like it's all over between Paul Robinson (played by Stefan Dennis) and his fiancee Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou) after he called off their wedding on Neighbours (opens in new tab).

In the weeks leading-up to the couple's Big Day, Paul's various ex-wives have been unexpectedly returning to Erinsborough - all warning Terese not to make the mistake of marrying him.

Even after the pair eloped to Queensland to get hitched, Paul was confronted by another ex-wife, Christina Alessi (Gayle Blakeney). So, convinced the universe is trying to send him a sign, Paul has cancelled the wedding and in today's episode he throws the wedding rings into the hotel fountain!

However, things are not what they seem. And it's NOT just a coincidence that Paul's past has returned to haunt him.

Both Paul and Terese are in for a shock when Christina and her twin sister Caroline (Gillian Blakeney) turn-up at their hotel and reveal why/how the ex-wives are back. Are you ready for this?

But the biggest shock awaits Paul when he discovers the identity of the mastermind behind the conspiracy of wives. It's someone very close to home. But WHO?

Meanwhile, after receiving a tearful phonecall from Terese revealing the wedding is OFF, Ned Willis (Ben Hall) prepares to fly to Queensland to support broken-hearted Terese.

But while waiting for his connecting flight in Sydney, Ned runs into some wedding drama of his own when he meets a jilted bride, Scarlett Brady (Christie Whelan Browne) sitting at the aiport bar. What's Scarlett's story?

And back in Erinsborough, Gary Canning (Damien Richardson) could be back in the dating game when he discovers both Gail Lewis (Fiona Corke) and Rebecca Napier (Jane Hall) are still open to continue dating Gary, even though he didn't react well when he first found they were both once married to his hated neighbour, Paul Robinson!

But who should Gary date? Gail or Rebecca? Or... BOTH?

Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5
