There are secrets and lies coming to light in today's Neighbours...

There is shock heading for Neighbours as Mackenzie Hargreaves struggles to get her head around the fact Shane Rebecchi has been lying to her since she arrived in Ramsay Street.

Last week Shane finally found the courage to tell Mackenzie the truth about the role he played in her tough childhood... and today's trip to Ramsay Street (5.30pm, see our TV Guide for full listings) sees the fallout of Shane's actions hit everyone involved.

Ever since arriving in Erinsborough the Rebecchi family have taken Mackenzie under their wing, helping her settle into her new life in the area.

But as Shane's bid to help Mackenzie track down her estranged dad started to take over his life, it became apparent there was more to his want to help Mackenzie than he first let on.

Last week Shane revealed to Mackenzie that he was the one who told her dad about her being transgender, a thoughtless moment that lead to her whole family being torn apart.

Today's Neighbours sees Mackenzie struggling to get her head around the fact the man she trusted more than anyone had betrayed her without her even knowing, and even Yashvi is sickened by her dad's actions.

As the truth about what happened spreads around Ramsay Street, Shane is forced to address the fact his actions in the past ruined Mackenzie's life, while Mackenzie herself starts to think he has only been helping her so much since she arrived in the area because he's feeling guilty.

As Dipi tracks Mackenzie down to defuse the situation, she makes her realise that Shane is a changed man and genuinely wants to help her find her dad.

But while Dipi's words get through to the struggling student, she still is adamant that she doesn't want to talk to Shane.

Despite the fact she can't face Shane, Mackenzie still wants to continue the search to find her dad and get some answers about why he hasn't been in touch since she was a child.

But is Mackenzie ready to hear what her dad has to say?

And will she ever be able to forgive Shane for what he did all those years ago and see he is a different person now?

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