There’s a lot of love in the Neighbours hood

After five very long weeks, Neighbours makes its much-anticipated return for 2017 on Monday.

When we last tuned into our favorite residents, fans were left on tenterhooks with the surprising revelation that Toadie’s first wife Dee (Madeline West) could be alive. Toadie (Ryan Moloney) wasn’t the only one given life altering news, with his wife Sonya (Eve Morey) confirming that she is indeed pregnant.

Picking up just hours after the finale, Toadie is struggling to process the news that Dee could be alive, resulting in flashbacks to that bittersweet day in 2003. What will Toadie do to find out the truth? Sonya is happy and anxious that she is expecting Mark (Scott McGregor) and Steph’s (Carla Bonner) kid, but not everyone is pleased with the news  Given both relationships are strained and a potential blast from the past could arrive things are bound to get intense.

Sonya isn’t the only one expecting. Paige (Olympia Valance) is also struggling to deal with an unexpected pregnancy- a complicated situation, given former lover Jack (Andrew Morley) has chosen the church over her and she’s trying to move on. Meanwhile, young lovers Tyler (Travis Burns) and Piper (Mavournee Hazel) are on cloud nine, but there’s stormy weather ahead when their secret romance is discovered. Can they win over Brad (Kip Gamblin) and Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou)?

It’s safe to say that fans will enjoy this episode, which sets up an interesting year ahead for the residents of Ramsay Street.
