Neighbours' Toadie Rebecchi is about to have his world shattered all over again...

There's fresh heartache heading for Toadie Rebecchi in today's Neighbours as his thought-to-be-dead wife Dee Bliss reveals exactly what happened to her after their wedding day crash horror 16 years ago.

Despite being pleased to finally see the real Dee after all this time, Toadie has been torn between welcoming her home with open arms and wondering why she hasn't been in touch for the last decade and a half.

But today Toadie is set to get all the answers that he has been looking for... but he might not like what Dee has got to say.

As Dee confesses that the reason she hasn't been in touch is far more complicated than Toadie could ever have imagined, he is left reeling as she tells him a story of a life in hiding to how she came to fall in love with the mysterious Riley.

Meanwhile at the police station, Riley himself is making a statement, and as the pieces of the puzzle start to fall into place, there is a shocking twist that no one saw coming, once again bringing Andrea and her terrible lies back into the frame.

While Toadie struggles once again to get his head around the fact his whole adult life has been based on a shocking turn of events that could have been avoided, it is also clear that Dee has been through a rough time and the pair try and make peace with what has happened.

But as Dee is treated in hospital for her injuries from the clifftop fall, she is thrilled to come face-to-face with Susan Kennedy again and she is soon invited to go and stay with the Kennedys' rather than get a room at Lassiters.

But when Dee asks for Toadie's approval, he shocks everyone by telling Dee that this is all too much for him and that he doesn't want her living on Ramsay Street.
