In next week’s Neighbours in Australia, returnee Amy Greenwood lands Lassiters in hot water with her uniform design. Meanwhile, Kirsha is back in town. Could a reunited Rebecchi clan be enough to bring Dipi and Shane back together?
These episodes air in Australia from Monday 21st to Thursday 24th December. This year, there will be no episodes of Neighbours in Australia on Christmas Day or New Year’s Day.
Amy Greenwood has recently returned to Erinsborough after a 20-year absence. She’s spent the past couple of decades working as an air hostess, but has been forced to change careers after her airline went out of business.
She returned to bid for the Lassiters uniform tender, and eventually manages to win Paul and Terese over with her designs. Yet there’s one small problem which she’s neglected to tell anyone – she doesn’t own the copyright to the designs she’s pitched.
She confesses the truth to Shane, and, shamed by her bad decisions, plans to flee town and forget about her new career attempt. However, Shane manages to talk her into staying and coming up with her own original designs. All she needs to do is convince Lassiters to use the new designs rather than the ones she originally pitched.
There’s just one problem – Terese has already planned a photoshoot with the original prototypes, i.e. Amy’s stolen designs! Now needing to delay things, Amy is forced to sabotage the photoshoot.
Sadly, her plan doesn’t go smoothly. Chloe, sensing something weird is going on, starts digging into Amy’s past. She’s shocked by what she finds, and the revelation could jeopardise Amy’s new life in Erinsborough.
Also next week, the whole Rebecchi family are reunited for Christmas. Will having all of their kids in one place encourage Shane and Dipi to reconcile?
Dipi has organised for Kirsha to come back to Melbourne for the festive period, meaning she has all three of her kids in Erinsborough for the first time. Although she and Shane have had a pretty terrible year, their children are still the most important thing to them, and they put their differences aside for the sake of celebrating Christmas together.
All five of them adorned in matching jumpers, they really get into the Christmas spirit. With everyone in good moods, it’s obvious that Yashvi, Kirsha and Jay want their parents to get back together.
Kirsha, back in town for the first time since her parents’ marriage issues began, tries her hardest to encourage them to patch things up.
She pushes Dipi to make more effort, and manages to get her mum to reflect on the good times she and Shane shared over their 20 years of marriage. Dipi is hating herself for what she’s done to her family, and is starting to struggle with the lack of warmth from Shane. She knows she deserves it, but is finally starting to feel remorse.
However, Shane’s lack of forgiveness for her affair isn’t the only thing she has to contend with. The arrival of Amy Greenwood throws another spanner in the works, as it’s clear that Shane and Amy are getting on like a house on fire.
Whether Shane is just rebounding or whether he and Amy share an actual connection remains to be seen. But either way, there’s definitely chemistry between them, and Shane isn’t afraid to show it.
Dipi knows she doesn’t have any right to say anything, as it’s her own actions which have pushed Shane towards another woman. Will she manage to win him round before he finds love elsewhere?
