There's drama heading for Pierce Greyson when Ebony Buttrose's secret life is revealed...

Today's Neighbours sees Pierce Greyson and Ebony Buttrose's engagement thrown into jeopardy when the truth about Ebony's secret life is finally exposed.

Chloe Brennan has known for weeks that Ebony is hiding something huge from her millionaire fiancé, Pierce.

And while her friends and family think Chloe is worrying about her ex because she still has feelings for him, she's remained adamant that they're just friends and she's simply looking out for him.

Putting her best detective skills to the test, Chloe managed to work out that Ebony was syphoning off large chunks of cash from Pierce's accounts and sending them to an unknown recipient... who eventually turned out to be her struggling single mum sister.

But despite Ebony's lies turning out to be less sinister than Chloe first imagined, she was still adamant that Ebony needed to tell Pierce the truth about her family, especially if they're going to get married.

Yesterday's Neighbours saw Chloe covering for Ebony once again as she found a place for her sister, Crystal, to live with her kids, but fed up with covering for her boss, she warns Ebony today that if she doesn't tell Pierce about her secret family, then she will.

But as Chloe is delivering her ultimatum, Pierce walks in and demands an explanation... and the news that his whole relationship has been based on a lie doesn't go down well.

Ebony is convinced that her romance is over and starts to pack her things... but Pierce offers her a deal to test if she really loves him - either leave and take a chunk of cash with her, or sign a financially binding agreement and start to build up trust in their relationship.

Pierce is thrilled when Ebony agrees to sign the agreement, claiming she just wants to get married and isn't interested in his money. But while the pair find themselves back on track, how will Chloe feel?

Is Pierce just her friend, or is she harbouring secret feelings for her ex?

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