Neighbours spoilers: Xanthe interrupts Sheila and Clive's striptease fun!

Neighbours - Xanthe Canning, Sheila Canning, Clive Gibbons

An embarassed Xanthe gets a right eyeful when she accidentally walks in on her gran Sheila getting frisky with her fella Clive!

All the preparations for the Flapper musical have certainly been putting the passion back into the neighbourhood. So when the musical's director Dipi helps her hubby Shane prepare for his role with a comedy pop quiz/stripshow challenge, saucy Sheila soon wants in on the act, and convinces her fella Clive to do the same as Shane. But much to everyone's embarassment, Sheila's granddaughter Xanthe walks in on the frisky pair just as Clive is doing the Full Monty!

Next door, Mark has seen CCTV footage from the night Liz claims she was mugged by Finn Kelly. But it seems Liz has been telling lies. There was no mugging and she dropped her purse while drunk. But when the rest of her family find out Liz has lied, will her daughters Elly and Bea forgive her or send Liz packing?

Also, Gary's dodgy deal with ex-prison inmate Jeremy comes back to haunt him, when Jeremy comes looking for the stash of stolen cash Gary has been hiding for him at The Retreat and accidentally knocks Sindi unconscious during a scuffle...

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.
