The truth about Sheila Canning's affair with Clive Gibbons is revealed today, and it's not pretty!

Neighbours fans have watched Sheila Canning and Clive Gibbons spend the last few weeks sneaking around like naughty teenagers after reigniting their romance... but there's just one problem, Clive is still in a relationship with hospital colleague Beverley Robinson.

Clive and Sheila broke up after Sheila took her meddling one step too far earlier this year when she teamed up with Paul Robinson to break up Amy Williams and Gary Canning.

But it seemed Clive just couldn't keep away from Sheila and the pair have been sneaking around behind Beverley's back for weeks.

However, the fun of having a secret affair soon wears off today when Dipi Rebecchi realises something is going on between the pair today and reminds Sheila that her actions with Clive have serious consequences.

Sheila reluctantly agrees and tells Clive it is time for him to come clean to Beverley, and he promises to be totally honest with her when he drops the bombshell that he is going back to Sheila.

However, it seems he's not quite as honest with Beverley as he should be, because later Sheila manages to put her foot in it when she tells Beverley how sorry she is about the affair and how she never meant for it to happen.

It turns out that Clive had only gone as far as telling Beverley that he was getting back together with Sheila, and handily missed out the bit about them spending the last few weeks sneaking around behind her back.

But of course scorned Beverley sees red and takes revenge on Sheila by grabbing a nearby bucket of horse manure and throwing it over Sheila's head.

With Beverley's life torn apart by Clive and Sheila's lies, is this the last we have seen of her? Or is her manure dumping just the start of her plan to get revenge?

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5
