Neighbours schemer Elly Conway makes a sickening move next week, as she desperately tries to keep her baby deception under wraps.

Elly (Jodi Anasta) resorts to passing off baby Caitlin's old scan photo as her own, needing Mark Brennan to stay in the dark about how many weeks pregnant she is.

The schoolteacher's latest crisis begins when Mark (Scott McGregor) announces he has booked her in for a scan at the hospital and wants to attend it with her.

Knowing she is only six weeks pregnant, Elly needs some way to get herself out of the scan if she wants to continue with her lies.

Elly ends up falsely claiming she got called to an earlier appointment and had the ultrasound without Mark.

Covering her tracks further, Elly also begs her doctor not to breach confidentiality rules by telling Mark that she never had her scan.

With one disaster averted, Elly's next dilemma is how she'll find an ultrasound picture to back up her bogus story about the scan.

Elly gets her chance when Dipi Rebecchi (Sharon Johal) passes her a box of Sonya's old belongings relating to Caitlin, asking her to give them to Mark.

Sonya carried Caitlin for Mark and Steph Scully in 2017, but tragically lost the baby when she started having contractions weeks before she was due.

Just as Elly spots an old ultrasound picture and considers whether to use it as her lifeline, Mark sees her with it and assumes it's their baby.

As the photo is in a frame, the name and date can't be seen – and Elly decides not to correct Mark's mistaken assumption over the baby in the picture.

Realising she's now stuck with this lie, Elly cuts off the date and naming details from the edge of Caitlin's ultrasound. Can she live with herself after what she has done?
