Neighbours spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.

Neighbours has revealed its first look at Glen Donnelly's dramatic return in a brand new promo video.

This year marks the 35th anniversary of Neighbours' arrival on UK screens, with the BBC first airing the Australian soap in 1986 after it originally launched on Aussie shores the year before.

To celebrate the anniversary of the soap's UK debut, Scott Mills is hosting a special Neighbours show on BBC Radio 2 today (August 30) which will see cast members reunite as the soap has also released a new "then and now" promo to mark the occasion.

Not only does the new clip, which you can watch above, remind us of some wonderfully nostalgic moments – including Scott and Charlene Robinson's wedding and Lou Carpenter introducing his bar – there are also some teaser clips of upcoming scenes as yet unseen by UK fans.

One of the biggest talking points of the teaser is our very first look at Glen Donnelly's return to Ramsay Street, a moment that hasn't yet aired in Australia or the UK.

It was revealed earlier this month that Glen (Richard Huggett) would be making a comeback, having not been seen since 1992 when he fell from the roof of Lassiters and suffered life-changing injuries. He left Erinsborough without saying goodbye to his family. But his half-brother Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) will soon be in for a shock when he comes face to face with Glen again.

There's no love lost between the siblings, so it's no surprise that Paul looks so horrified to see Glen again, who greets his brother with an ominous: "Been a long time".

How Glen and Paul's relationship will develop remains to be seen, but there are sure to be fireworks of some sort.

The promo clip also contains some new footage for UK fans, including Rose Walker's return. Rose (Lucy Durack) clearly has an agenda to win back her ex, Toadie Rebecchi (Ryan Moloney), but will she manage to drive a wedge between him and Melanie Pearson (Lucinda Cowden)?

We also get a look at Paul trying to hunt down the missing Nicolette Stone (Charlotte Chimes), as well as glimpses at Levi Canning (Richie Morris), Amy Greenwood (Jacinta Stapleton) and Ned Willis (Ben Hall)'s polyamory story as they navigate their new romantic arrangement.

The clip also gives us a first look at Lucy Robinson (Melissa Bell)'s return, as she announces to Paul that his "whole life is an evil plan". But could Lucy be getting up to no good with Paul, or will she be aligning with the also-returning Glen?

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
