Neighbours has revealed a first look at this year's dramatic Christmas episode, which sees Elly Conway held at knifepoint while she's in labour.

The Aussie soap will air on Christmas Day once again this year, as two huge storylines collide.

Upcoming episodes will see Robert Robinson (Adam Hunter) agree to donate a kidney to his half-brother David Tanaka, who's seriously ill in hospital.

Robert's father Paul (Stefan Dennis) has major reservations about his involvement and his worst fears are confirmed when a horrifying incident unfolds at the hospital, which culminates in Robert escaping.

As the police search for Robert, most of the Erinsborough residents are preparing for a Christmas concert which has been organised in memory of Sonya Rebecchi.

Toadie and Chloe briefly consider cancelling the concert, since Robert is on the loose and David is clinging to life at the hospital, but they ultimately decide it should go ahead as planned.

Feeling tired, heavily-pregnant Elly (Jodi Anasta) decides to skip the concert and stay home to rest. However, her quiet Christmas takes a horrifying turn when she sees Robert lurking outside.

Realising that he has been rumbled, Robert follows Elly into the Kennedy house – just as her waters break.

Finn Kelly (Rob Mills) also rushes inside when he realises something is going on, supporting Elly through the labour, while Robert watches on clutching a knife.

With the stakes so high, how will this end for Elly, Finn and Robert?
