Just when Neighbours' Elly Brennan thought her life couldn't get any worse... it will today!

Neighbours is set to air a huge twist in the Elly Brennan baby saga today when she finds out that the mystery father of her baby is actually Shaun... Finn Kelly's brother.

Neighbours fans have seen Elly's world sprillaing out of control over recent weeks as she tries to mend her shattered marriage to Mark Brennan.

The pair had only been married for a matter of minutes when the news that Elly had slept with Mark's sister, Chloe, was revealed, meaning their wedded bliss didn't last long at all.

Mark and Elly's wedding ended in heartache...

But then Elly discovered she was pregnant, news that bought her and Mark closer again and gave her hope that they could fix their doomed relationship.

But there was just one snag, Elly wasn't actually pregnant and had been given a false positive on the test she had taken.

The news left her devastated and convinced that Mark would leave her for good if he ever found out, so she kept the truth from him.

As she struggled to cope with the news, Elly spent the night alone drinking in a bar, only to meet the mysterious Shaun... and with Elly unaware of who he was, the pair spent the night together, which left Elly pregnant for real this time.

Unaware of who he is, Elly flirted with and spent the night with Shaun!

But while being pregnant was everything she had hoped for, Elly was heartbroken to discover the baby couldn't be Mark's, and today she is set to find out who Shaun really is.

As Finn Kelly's court hearing gets underway, everyone takes to the stand to share their experiences of what happened at the hands of evil Finn.

But Elly is unable to face her manipulative ex, even if he is a changed man these days, and stays away from court until it is her turn to read her witness impact statement.

However, when she arrives in the courtroom, she's thrown to see her one night stand there and quickly flees... leaving everyone bemused.

Will Mark discover wife Elly's latest baby bombshell?

Leo races after her but Elly is clearly in a bad way, and soon she's demanding to know who the man standing with Finn is.

Her whole world shatters when Leo tells her that Shaun is Finn's brother, and Elly feels sick to realise that she is now pregnant with her evil ex's brother's baby, making things a million times more complicated than they already were.

As Elly struggles to get her head around what this means for her future, we're left wondering just how she is going to cope with this news, and exactly how much longer she can keep such a huge secret from Mark...

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