After being caught kissing by Ned, secret lovers Bea and Finn must decide whether they're ready to go public with their romance
Bea Nilsson (played by Bonnie Anderson) and Finn Kelly (Rob Mills) had been hoping to keep their new relationship under wraps for a while on Neighbours (opens in new tab). But now they've been busted by Bea's ex-boyfriend, Ned Willis (Ben Hall)!
Ned is definitely NOT Finn's number one fan. He believes the former high school teacher should have gone to prison for previously menacing the Kennedy family. So the question is, will Ned agree to keep quiet about what he saw?
Worried it is only a matter of time before word gets out to their families, Bea and Finn must decide whether they're ready to go public and announce their romance?
Meanwhile, Ned is so pre-occupied after catching Bea and Finn kissing, that he messes things up with his girlfriend Yashvi Rebecchi (Olivia Junkeer) - who is crushed after Ned was a no-show for their planned night of romance at Lassiters.
When Yashvi finds out why Ned's attention was elsewhere, she makes it clear their relationship won't work if he keeps on worrying about what his ex is up to. Can Ned let Bea go and focus on romance with Yashvi?
Meanwhile, Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly) is curious after discovering bestie Elly Conway (Jodi Anasta) may still have romantic feelings for her.
Chloe dresses to impress for a casual lunch with Elly. But her brothers Aaron (Matt Wilson) and Mark (Scott McGregor) are both worried Chloe's setting herself up for heartbreak again.
So does Elly want to re-connect romantically... or as just good friends?
Elsewhere in Erinsborough, Toadie Rebecchi's (Ryan Maloney) friends and family are worried he and not-dead first wife Dee Bliss (Madeleine West) are getting too close for comfort. It's all too soon after the death of Toadie's wife Sonya from cancer a few months ago.
So Dipi Rebecchi does some snooping when she stumbles upon Dee's diary. But what will she discover about Dee's feelings for Toadie?
Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5
