Neighbours is lining up a bumper few weeks full of shocks and secrets – and Bea Nilsson and Finn Kelly will be at the heart of the action.
As Bea (Bonnie Anderson) and Finn (Rob Mills) finally acknowledge their feelings for each other and give into temptation with a passionate kiss, the couple decide to keep their new relationship secret, but it quickly proves to be more difficult than they thought.
Upcoming episodes will see the duo struggle to find places where they can be alone, and they ultimately decide that the only way they'll get any privacy is by getting out of Erinsborough.
As they head into the city for their first date, a wary Finn is worried he'll be recognised from the newspaper, but Bea's suggestion that they role-play new identities to feel more comfortable also ends up backfiring when it triggers a horrible memory for Bea regarding Finn's evil 'Patrick' days.
With both Bea and Finn aware that their relationship will prove challenging, things only get more complicated when Ned stumbles upon the pair kissing, and tells his new love interest Yashvi about what he saw too.
Although Ned promises the pair that the news of their relationship won't go any further, the couple realise that it's only a matter of time before their family and friends find out the truth too, so they decide to take the bull by the horns and announce their romance themselves.
Unsurprisingly, both Elly and Karl are shocked by the news and they actively try to discourage Bea from continuing the relationship with Finn, warning her that they think it will only bring her pain.
Though she tries to be supportive, Elly eventually reveals her true feelings about the relationship to Bea, telling her it's wrong and she should shut it down.
But the honesty only leaves Bea feeling hurt and frustrated, and she defies their warnings – she's totally committed to rebuilding her relationship with Finn.
Something tells us that won't be as easy as she thinks...
