Neighbours star Benny Turland has spoken to Digital Spy about Hendrix Greyson and Harlow Robinson's sad break-up.

Monday's episode on Channel 5 (February 15) saw Hendrix left devastated as Harlow dumped him, unable to forgive his recent involvement in criminal activity.

Hendrix recently resorted to stealing a gun when his gambling debts left him facing death threats. His actions ultimately spiralled further out of control, with Shane Rebecchi being injured by the weapon and Harlow being kidnapped.

Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy about the subsequent break-up, Benny commented: "My honest reaction is that I was quite upset! I do enjoy the relationship between Hendrix and Harlow. We've had a lot of fun building that up ever since I started in the show, as there's always been a chemistry there.

"It was upsetting because it was such a familiarity on set and it turned into a beautiful relationship. But it was also exciting to work with Jemma on this storyline.

"I think Neighbours viewers have learned to love the relationship, so it'll come as a bit of a shock to people. I don't think they'll be too happy to start with.

"But there's not much you can do to come back from Hendrix's behaviour. He has stuffed up quite a bit, so it's quite reasonable for Harlow to pull the pin. I'm keen to see how people react as the break-up scene was quite upsetting."

Benny said that he wouldn't rule out the possibility of a reunion for the young couple in the future.

He explained: "Harlow has become a huge part of Hendrix's life and a huge part of his choices. He chose to stay in Erinsborough and not go with his dad because of Harlow, so he truly loves her and will always have a soft spot for her. I think there's definitely potential for a reunion.

"In the immediate future, Hendrix loses a lot of love for himself as well. He's done this all to himself and it was his fault that Harlow was in trouble. It's hard for him to live with himself after what he's done, so there's a bit of an emotional spiral there.

"Hendrix doesn't see any way forward unless he has Harlow by his side. I think he's got to continue on that downward spiral before he can come up again.

"There is potential there for him to grow and learn from this. Hopefully he'll get better with his choices and decision making. Once his focus goes from trying to get Harlow back and he focuses on loving himself, that's when he'll push through."

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
