Neighbours spoilers follow from Australian episodes, which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.
Neighbours has delivered a huge cliffhanger on Australian screens today (September 20), as Nicolette Stone made a shock return.
Nicolette (Charlotte Chimes) has been away from Erinsborough for several weeks, although Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) did track her down in Canberra in mid-August, bribing her with $1,000,000 for baby Isla and for her never to return. At the time, Nicolette accepted the bribe but handed over a different baby.
So it's probably no surprise that Paul had a panicked expression on his face, when he saw Nicolette again.
Today's episode picked up straight after last Thursday's cliffhanger, which saw (the fake) baby Isla being kidnapped at the Shorts and Briefs film festival by newcomer Britney Barnes (Montana Cox).
The police quickly got involved, as David Tanaka (Takaya Honda) and Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson) were left distraught.
David – being the only other person apart from Paul to know Nicolette is not really in the US – suspected Nicolette was the kidnapper, until a photo of Britney with the baby was found.
Roxy Willis (Zima Anderson) spent much of the episode with a feeling that she had seen Britney before, aside from the brief conversation they shared just before the film festival. And she was right – she later realised she saw a pregnant Britney on CCTV footage outside Leo Tanaka's vineyard.
Levi Canning (Richie Morris) eventually tracked down Britney at the community centre with 'Isla'. The kidnapper dropped the bombshell to Levi that she's the real mother of this particular baby.
At Number 32, David, Aaron, and Paul, as well as Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly), and Jane Harris (Annie Jones), listened as Levi told them on the phone that Isla has been found and taken to hospital as a precaution.
As David and Aaron prepared to head to the hospital, everyone was stunned to see Nicolette walking into the house – with the real baby Isla. Is she back for good?
Tomorrow's episode will explore the fallout of Nicolette's return, as well as reveal the father of Britney's baby.
These scenes will air in the UK in early October.
Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
