Neighbours fans will see Finn Kelly left shocked next week as his mother Claudia Watkins reveals her ulterior motive for returning to Erinsborough.

Claudia will be back on screen from this Friday (December 6) and her reappearance is sure to spark more trouble for pregnant Elly Conway.

Suspiciously, Claudia's comeback comes shortly after troublesome student Dean Mahoney has been caught out for stalking Elly.

As Claudia settles into Erinsborough during her visit, she goes on a charm offensive with everyone – in complete contrast to her attitude last time.

Claudia makes a generous donation to the Buddy Club programme and Finn is pleased to see that she has seemingly changed. However, Susan Kennedy isn't fooled so easily, appearing more sceptical over her apparent personality overhaul.

Sure enough, it's not long before Claudia's mask slips. Finn is concerned when he catches Claudia out in a lie and demands to know why she really returned to Erinsborough.

Claudia confesses that she was responsible for Dean hassling Elly again – and also went a step further by hiring a private investigator to dig up dirt from her past.

Finn is appalled by Claudia's behaviour, but she insists that she's merely looking out for her grandchild following the sad death of Shaun. She also claims that she has good reason to be worried, after learning some unsettling details of Elly's past.

Putting a brand new plan into action, Claudia tries to recruit Finn as her new inside man.

Claudia suggests that Finn can keep a close eye on Elly, and the minute she proves she'll be a bad parent, Claudia can step in instead. Will Finn agree?

Neighbours airs these scenes on Tuesday, December 10 and Wednesday, December 11 at 12.50pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
