Neighbours' Chelsea secures another major victory in Paul scheme

Neighbours spoilers follow.

Chelsea Murphy will have some unexpected success with her scheme to charm Paul Robinson in Neighbours.

Chelsea has been at odds with sister-in-law Remi over her plans to woo Paul for his money, culminating in a row where Chelsea insulted Remi and Cara's marriage.

She has since used David Tanaka's tragic death as a means for a shaky truce with Remi while still getting close to grieving Paul.

Paul will continue struggling in upcoming scenes, as he questions the part he may have played in David's heartbreaking demise.

Lucy Robinson worries about her brother's state of mind because she's due to travel back to the US. Ultimately, Lucy realises she can't leave him while he's struggling.

This puts Lucy in a very difficult position, as she has to be supportive of Paul while still trying to juggle her work and family responsibilities.

Over at the Varga-Murphy house, Chelsea manages to irritate Remi once again and it's not long before her sister-in-law questions how much longer she plans to stay.

Chelsea soon spots an opportunity to get closer to Paul and get her sister-in-law off her back at the same time.

After learning of Lucy's difficult circumstances, Chelsea offers to move in with Paul so she can see him through the grieving process.

These scenes air on Thursday, February 15.

If you're doubting whether Chelsea's gesture is entirely selfless, cast member Viva Bianca recently hinted that the character always has a scheme up her sleeve.

"The thing about Chelsea is she's always got something else kind of ticking," she said. "And in this instance, it turns out things aren't quite as they seem. Let's just say she's a really effective manipulator, and she does somewhat work her way into Paul Robinson's good books.

"Chelsea sticks around for a while and has quite a bit of business to tend to, and is determined to do so. So you'll be seeing a fair bit of me over the next few months."
