Neighbours returns a favourite resident

Neighbours threw fans a welcome surprise return last night with the reintroduction of Ned Willis.

Ned (Ben Hall), now sporting a black eye thanks to intervening in the altercation between Leo (Tim Kano) and Dilhan (Kyle Hazebroek) last night, surprises half-sister Piper (Mavournee Hazel) and former step-mother Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) by turning up unannounced at their home. The pair are a little suspicious of Ned’s non-committal response that he’s here to check on Piper given her recent struggles.

It’s during a chat with Leo that Ned reveals it is difficult to let go of romantic feelings, giving Leo the impression that he’s come back to town for former flame Elly (Jodi Anasta)- but is this the case?

Whatever secrets Ned is hiding, it’s safe to say he makes a welcome return to Ramsay Street and I for one can’t wait to see why he’s returned and what producers have in store for the much-loved character, who will be sticking around for a while this time.

Neighbours airs 6:30 pm weeknights on Eleven
