Expanding the family 

Fans will be aware that Toadie Rebecchi's (Ryan Moloney) brother, Shane, and his wife Dipi, have two daughters Kirsha and Yashvi, who have become familiar faces to viewers over the years.

While Kirsha might be away from home studying, Yashvi is still very much a part of the Neighbours cast, and has currently started a career with the local police.

The news that Jay is joining his family in Ramsay Street was accidentally revealed when a script was leaked online.

A spokesperson for Neighbours has since confirmed to Digital Spy: "We can confirm that, yes, there is another Rebecchi coming to Ramsay Street - stay tuned!"

While Jay's arrival in Erinsborough is predicted to be before the end of the year, the details of his storyline have been kept tightly under wraps.

Trouble in paradise 

Neighbours viewers will know that things are far from rosy in Shane and Dipi's marriage at the moment.

Things have been more than tense between the couple since Shane discharged himself early from rehab, where he was getting treatment for his addiction to amphetamines to help him study.

Could Jay arrive in Ramsay Street just in time to help his parents patch their marriage up?
