Neighbours spoilers follow for UK viewers.

Neighbours sees Brent Colefax's robbery plan go horribly wrong on UK screens next week, as Nicolette Stone and the baby are put in danger.

The shock incident at The Hive happens as a result of Brent (Texas Watterston) making plans to run away with his brother Emmett Donaldson (Ezra Justin), after they both mistakenly believe their foster parents David Tanaka (Takaya Honda) and Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson) don't want them around any more.

In upcoming scenes on Channel 5, Brent plots to break into The Hive with Holden Brice (Toby Derrick) to steal expensive equipment donated for the Year 13 program's off-site vocational project.

Brent is hiding the planned robbery from everyone, including his brother – but Emmett suspects something is going on.

As Brent and Holden arrive at The Hive to start the robbery, Emmett acts cagey with David and Aaron and makes an excuse to leave the house. David and Aaron shrug off Emmett's weird behaviour, but Nicolette (Charlotte Chimes) believes Emmett is hiding something and decides to follow him.

Emmett arrives at The Hive and interrupts the robbery, asking Brent to stop. The pair eventually flee when they hear someone coming.

That person is Nicolette, and she comes face to face with Holden, who has stayed behind to finish the robbery.

Nicolette recognises Holden from a sketch of Roxy Willis' attacker, but is attacked as he pushes her over. A cabinet with heavy boxes falls on Nicolette, leaving her badly injured and unable to move.

Curtis Perkins (Nathan Borg) also arrives at The Hive and disturbs the robbery, leading Holden to attack the teacher to make his escape. Curtis' cochlear implant is knocked out of his ear in the process.

Bleeding and fearing for her baby, Nicolette desperately screams for help.

However, Curtis can't hear anything as he struggles to find his cochlear implant on the floor in the dark.

Nicolette passes out, before Jane Harris (Annie Jones) comes across the scene at The Hive and finds her daughter.

Jane urgently calls for an ambulance, as Nicolette and the baby's lives hang in the balance.

Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, May 10 and Tuesday, May 11 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
