In the latest Neighbours spoilers for Australia, Shane is caught red-handed by Dipi, while Ned’s newest venture proves interesting and Pierce and Nicolette butt heads.
The Neighbours storylines below will air in Australia from Monday 10th August, and in the UK three weeks later from Monday 31st August.
It’s been a rough few weeks for Shane Rebecchi (Nicholas Coughlan) and the worst is yet to come…
After weeks of secretive amphetamine taking, this week the Ramsay Street father of two spirals further into his addiction.
Despite attempts to get clean, he’s turned back to pills every time, despite the fact that he knows he’s got a problem.
“Shane is desperate to keep his habit a secret and is blind to the havoc he’s causing in everyone’s lives – his own included,” Nic relayed to TV Week.
His only confidante through this whole battle has been colleague and close friend Roxy (Zima Anderson) who accidentally stumbled across a baggie which Shane seized from her hand when his police officer daughter Yashvi (Olivia Junkeer) approached.
Despite he pleads to the contrary, it becomes obvious that whatever control Shane had over his issue is now slpping away.
“He’s convinced himself he has his situation under control and believes that he can stop using whenever he wants,” he said.
However, with his 20th wedding anniversary nigh, Shane is oblivious to the fact that wife Dipi (Sharon Johal) is organising a special dinner and wants to make his night, knowing how stressed he’s been with university lately.
All dressed up, Dipi is disappointed to find that Shane hasn’t arrived for their special night together and decides to go out looking for him.
She’s startled when she comes across him in an alley in neighbouring suburb West Waratah, scoring drugs from his dealer.
“She doesn’t have the courage to confront him, so waits for him to explain when he comes home, but he lies to her face,” Sharon told the magazine.
“She can’t rationalise what could possibly be going on.”
However, matters take a dark turn, when Roxy opens up to Dipi about everything that has been going on.
With the truth out in the open, and Shane aware his secret has been blown, there’s every likelihood things could turn very ugly, very quickly…
Elsewhere in Ramsay Street
After beginning a pay-only account for his artwork, Ned (Ben Hall) begins receives some off requests. Could his “art” turn into something of a raunchier nature?
Nicolette (Charlotte Chimes) and Pierce (Tim Robards) don’t see eye to eye over the treatment of Fay (Zoe Bertram) – but is the reason why more personal than either cares to admit?
