It seems Shaun Watkins is hiding a huge baby secret...

Today's Neighbours sees Elly left stunned after discovering Shaun has been keeping a huge secret about their unborn baby from her.

Neighbours fans have seen Elly struggling to come to terms with the fact she is having a baby with her formerly evil ex Finn Kelly's brother... but since getting to know Shaun a little better the pair have started to bond over the fact they're having a baby together.

But despite the tension thawing between them, things are set to take a dramatic turn in today's trip to Ramsay Street (5.30pm, see our TV Guide for full listings).

Elly's best friends David and Aaron have been watching over her since Shaun retuned to Erinsborough recently, and while Aaron is pleased to see Shaun and Elly getting on well, David is suspicious that something sinister is going on after overhearing Shaun on a dodgy-sounding phone call.

When David sees Shaun comforting Elly at the hospital after she gets some bad news about her sister Bea's heart condition, he is worried that his friend is leaning on someone she barely knows, and share his worries with Aaron.

Aaron is quick to dismiss David's worries... however by the end of today's Neighbours David's suspicions are confirmed when he spots an official looking document amongst Shaun's belongings.

While Shaun's back is turned David sneaks a look, much to Aaron's horror.

But when Shaun catches them red handed, the cat is soon out of the bag when David hands the forms to Elly.

She is stunned when it appears they are legal forms for her to sign over custody of her baby to Shaun... but why would he want to take a baby from its mother?

With Elly's world crumbling around her it seems Shaun has some serious explaining to do.

But will he really take Elly's baby away from her?
