Meanwhile, there's relief for Toadie Rebecchi when his young daughter Nell turns up safe and sound with neighbour, Aaron Brennan. Luckily, Nell never went into the Community Centre, so avoided inhaling the poisonous gas. Phew!

An investigation into the attack immediately gets underway and the community is quick to point the finger of blame at Finn, who was previously caught by Toadie breaking into the office of the Sonya Rebecchi Foundation and has a history of terrible doings.

But there's an unexpected surprise in store when Ned comes forward and confesses to policeman Mark Brennan who the REAL culprit is...

Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm and 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.
