There's drama heading to Ramsay Street next week as Neighbours favourite Toadie Rebecchi comes face-to-face with someone he'd rather forget...

Neighbours' Toadie Rebecchi is set to have his world turned upside down once again when he comes face-to-face with evil Dee Bliss imposter, Andrea Somers.

Soap fans will know that poor Toadie has been through a rough time of late.

Firstly losing his beloved wife Sonya to cancer and facing life as a single dad, before then having his fundraising event for the foundation he set up in Sonya's name ruined when the community centre was targeted as part of the Finn Kelly storyline.

But there's no rest for Toadie, because another bombshell is heading his way next week when actress Madeline West reprises her role as Fake Dee once again.

Next week's episodes will see police officer Mark Brennan get wind of where Andrea is, and he doesn't waste any time letting Toadie's brother, Shane Rebecchi, know.

Neighbours fans will know that before her death Sonya shared the secret with Shane that Andrea had hinted that the real Dee wasn't dead after all, and Shane can't resist going to meet Andrea himself, rather than passing the information on to a fragile Toadie.

When Shane meets Andrea, she tells him all about the mysterious man she met at the Salamanca Markets, who wrongly assumed she was a woman who goes by the name of Karen.

But while most people would shrug off unhinged Andrea's claims, Shane can't help but believe there could be some truth in what she is saying.

Andrea is adamant that she is in a better place, and even has a job and is trying to rebuild a life for herself since leaving psychiatric care.

Telling Shane that she wants to reunite Toadie with his dead wife as a way to try and make up for all the hurt that she caused him and his family, she finally reveals that she will give her help on one condition - that Shane helps her see her son, Hugo.

Surprisingly Shane agrees and it doesn't take long for the pair to arrive back in Erinsborough so that Andrea can see the toddler that she shares with Toadie.

But despite telling Andrea to keep a low profile while he breaks the shattering news to Toadie, Shane's plan goes horribly wrong when Toadie catches Andrea and Shane chatting together!

Shane gas got some serious explaining to do as he tries to tell his brother why the woman who nearly wrecked his marriage to Sonya is in Ramsay Street... but what if Andrea's claims are correct and the real Dee is still alive?

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