Neighbours spoilers follow from Australian episodes, which some UK viewers may prefer to avoid.

Neighbours has aired Bonnie Anderson's final scenes in the role of Bea Nilsson on Australian screens.

Monday's episode on 10 Peach in Australia saw Bea depart Ramsay Street for new adventures – but she didn't go alone.

Recent episodes on Australian screens, which are currently four weeks ahead of the UK, have seen Bea break up with her boyfriend Levi Canning.

Although Levi was heartbroken and believed there was still a chance for them to work things out, Bea stood firm that the split was for the best.

Now single and looking to the future, Bea decided to leave on a road trip with the new Sheila Canning after striking up a friendship with her.

Bea shared heartfelt farewells with the Kennedys, her ex-boyfriend Ned Willis and close friend Yashvi Rebecchi before making her departure. She also wrote an emotional letter to Levi.

The new Sheila, meanwhile, had dramas of her own to resolve before she left.

As Sheila had recently given some advice to Bea, the Ramsay Street Cannings mistakenly blamed her for Bea wanting to end things with Levi.

Sheila 1 considered holding a grudge by refusing to say goodbye to her namesake, but eventually realised she was wrong and thanked Sheila 2 for her recent friendship.

Sheila 2 also had to explain her recent romantic link with Ned after Yashvi found out about their spark. Both Sheila and Ned assured Yashvi that nothing happened between them beyond an emotional connection.

In real life, Bonnie Anderson announced her departure from Neighbours in February.

Speaking to the Sunday Herald Sun at the time, Bonnie explained: "Neighbours really changed my life for the better in so, so many ways. I feel like at the age I was, 23, when I joined the show it has really shaped me into the person that I am today.

"I have overcome a lot, I have grown and I am proud of the way I live my life. It was really good to have that structure and now after 3½ years on that show I have decided it is time for me to continue challenging myself and create space to focus on my music and songwriting and more acting."
