Neighbours spoilers follow for UK viewers.
Next week's Neighbours episodes see Melanie Pearson return to Erinsborough for a reunion with some old friends, while Nicolette is next to catch the attention of bad boy Kane.
Here's a full collection of nine big moments coming up.
1. Sheila puts pressure on Des
Sheila shamelessly uses her health scare to her advantage, hoping to exploit it as part of her ongoing mission to win back Clive. In order to achieve her aim, Sheila wants Des to stick around for a while and drive a wedge between Clive and Jane.
Although Des is not on board with this idea, Sheila is not listening to his protests and announces to everyone that he has agreed to stay in Erinsborough to look after her.
2. Melanie Pearson returns to Erinsborough
As Sheila goes full steam ahead with her scheme, she arranges for Des and Jane to spend the day together – joined by their old friend Melanie Pearson. Melanie was a Neighbours regular between 1987 and 1991, and was last seen making a cameo in the 20th anniversary episode in 2005.
As Melanie catches up with her mates, it's clear that she still has no filter and she can't resist sharing her opinions on Jane's new romance.
3. Sheila gets carried away with her romance hopes
While Jane is busy spending the afternoon with Des and Melanie, a determined Sheila takes the opportunity to invite Clive over.
Sheila tells Clive that she wants some medical advice about her pacemaker, but they end up heading to the Tram together to support Kyle as he takes part in the Best Dish of Erinsborough competition.
Sheila appreciates Clive's moral support and suspects that it's only a matter of time before they reunite, but she may be seriously misreading Clive's current mindset.
4. Hendrix makes his boldest bet yet
Hendrix remains in debt to Kane, but is now in a vicious circle. He believes he has to continue playing blackjack games in the hope of earning enough money to pay back what he owes.
During the latest game, Kane raises the stakes by offering Hendrix a chance to clear his entire debt. However, if the terrified teen loses, Kane will get Number 24.
Even though Number 24 isn't his to gamble, Hendrix agrees to the alarming deal. Kane is triumphant when the cards fall in his favour, leaving Hendrix in a bigger mess than ever.
5. Kane threatens to target a new victim
Nicolette's stress levels increase when she learns that Ricardo intends to sue her for damages, as well as the money that she stole. She has no idea how she'll afford to pay up.
Nicolette strikes up an unlikely bond with Kane and confides in him about her financial woes. Kane mentions his blackjack games and suggests this could be an easy way for Nicolette to make some cash, leaving her severely tempted.
6. Nicolette threatens Hendrix
With Nicolette now being drawn in by Kane, it's only a matter of time before she discovers that Hendrix is in big trouble with the Erinsborough bad boy.
Hendrix assures Nicolette that the situation is in hand, as he plans to ask his father Pierce to give him the money to pay off Kane. Nicolette warns Hendrix that she'll expose his secret if he doesn't sort the situation out within 24 hours.
7. Dipi sacrifices her own happiness
When a mix-up leads to Shane believing that Dipi is starting to date other men, he decides to push forward with his own new relationship. Shane and Amy give into their feelings for each other, but the timing couldn't be worse as Dipi is now ready to start trying again with Shane.
After encouragement from Yashvi, Dipi seeks out Shane at The Hive to talk things through with him. She's horrified to find him in a compromising position with Amy.
Dipi finds the situation difficult to deal with, but soon realises that Shane is genuinely happy with Amy. She decides to keep her own feelings to herself and let Shane move on, although the sacrifice leaves her heartbroken.
8. A poisoning scandal begins
Kyle enters the Best Dish of Erinsborough competition and gets Roxy involved as his assistant chef. When Roxy forgets to buy mushrooms for the recipe, she picks some wild ones from outside the Tram instead – unaware that they're poisonous.
Kyle's entry is judged by local councillor Jacinta Hay, who seems impressed by his efforts. However, by the end of the day, Jacinta becomes unwell and is left in a bad way.
9. Toadie joins Tinder
Toadie is keen to start dating again following his split from Audrey, so joins Tinder. His first date is with a woman called Mary and things seem to go well between them.
Later on, Toadie is surprised and disappointed to discover that Mary has unmatched with him. He complains that she hasn't even offered him an explanation, but Kyle points out this is simply the brutal reality of dating apps.
