There's drama heading for Neighbours as Paul and Harlow Robinson are confronted by with someone from their past...

Today's Neighbours sees Paul Robinson come face-to-face with his ex wife Gail Lewis, who also just happens to be Harlow Robinson's grandmother. But why is she back?

Harlow has been wanting to get to know her extended family ever since she arrived in Australia from the UK, but as luck would have it, her meeting with Gail couldn't have come at a worse moment.

The drama starts today when bride-to-be Terese comes up with the plan to send Harlow and Roxy out together to collect her wedding dress.

The pair have been at loggerheads since they met, and with their personalities like chalk and cheese, it doesn't seem like they're going to be best friends any time soon.

However, Terese is convinced that giving them the joint wedding dress mission will break the ice between the pair, and it certainly does that... but probably not in the way she had hoped!

The pair are already arguing before they make it out of Ramsay Street, and when Roxy managed to reverse their car into a bin and smash a break light, Harlow is fuming that she could be so reckless.

However, broken car lights soon become the least of their worries when they get Terese's expensive wedding dress home and Roxy is determined to try it on.

Knowing that it is going to end in disaster, Harlow tries in vain to talk Roxy out of her plan, but of course her words fall on deaf ears and before they know what is happening Roxy has torn the dress beyond repair.

Harlow is incredulous that someone could be that selfish and goes to break the news to Terese... but she is frustratingly unfazed when she hears about her bridal gown and Harlow is left fuming.

But while Harlow is stressing about the wedding dress, Roxy gets some bad news of her own when business partner Leo Tanaka confesses he has been swindled by his one night stand who has stolen all their money from the bar bank account.

Roxy is fuming, until she hears that the culprit is actually her ex boyfriend Lance's cousin, Carley.

Hearing Lance's name again throws Roxy, and so when she returns home she vents her anger at Harlow and the pair are soon at war once again.

This time though it is Harlow's turn to lash out and she throws the dinner at Roxy in a fit of rage... but not only is Terese's wedding dress also in the firing line, the pair start a full-blown food fight, only for Gail to choose that moment to walk in.

Gail is horrified at what her estranged granddaughter is up to, but that's nothing in comparison to how Paul reacts when he comes home to see his ex wife standing in his living room...

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