A shock revelation is set to leave Neighbours' Sheila Canning heartbroken...

Today's Neighbours sees Sheila Canning thrilled when she sees former flame Clive Gibbons for the first time since they broke up... only for him to drop a bombshell that shatters her world.

Every Neighbours fan knows that Sheila is famous for getting caught up in dramas that don't really involve her... and that more often than not she ends up taking things too far.

But despite the fact that she usually means well, the moment Sheila left a pigs head on Imogen Willis's car earlier this year left Clive questioning his romance with the Ramsay Street busy body.

However, it was when Sheila then got caught up in her bizarre plot to break up son Gary and his fiancée Amy that Clive ended their relationship, having got to the point where he couldn't put up with her games any longer.

Devastated at being dumped, Sheila has been working hard to change her ways, and has even built bridges with her son Gary over the whole debacle.

However, Clive has kept his distance and even turned down an invitation to Sheila's party earlier this week, determined not to get involved in her life any more.

But with Sheila clearly missing her ex, Gary tries to help his mum by meeting Clive and asking him to come and visit a down in the dumps Sheila.

Clive reluctantly agrees and Sheila is thrilled when he turns up in her back garden for a chat.

However, her good mood is soon ruined when Clive reminds her exactly why he ended their relationship and admits that he has got something pressing to tell her.

Sheila jumps to the conclusion that her has got a terminal illness, but it's actually something very different that Clive has to share with her... and he leaves her shocked with the revelation that he is seeing someone else.

Shelia is understandably surprised that he has moved on so quickly - but is this really the end of Clive and Sheila, or can she persuade him to change his mind?

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