Neighbours will unveil another set of new opening titles later this month as the show's latest family arrives.

Producers recently announced that Toadie Rebecchi's older brother Shane will be returning to Ramsay Street as a regular character, joined by four of his family members.

Nowhere Boys and House Husbands star Nicholas Coghlan has been cast as Shane, who's heading to Erinsborough with his wife Dipi, their two daughters Yashvi and Kirsha, and his sister-in-law Mishti.

Fans can expect to see the new arrivals added into the Neighbours opening sequence in the week commencing Monday, April 24.

Shane and Mishti actually make their first appearances next week, but the titles aren't changed until the following week when the rest of the family arrives. As Mishti has been grouped with the Tanakas, could there be a spark between her and Leo?

With a batch of exciting newcomers being added, Neighbours has also taken the opportunity to update the shots for the rest of the cast too.

Although the style of the credits stays the same, almost every cast member has been re-filmed for the sequence – with only Jack and Paige's joint shot staying the same.

The current sequence was introduced in January for the launch of the 2017 season.

Neighbours' executive producer Jason Herbison told Digital Spy: "This year's opening titles are designed to immediately reflect changes in the cast, work places and living situations. We have a new family coming in and the titles will update as soon as all five are on screen. It's fantastic to have a concept that allows us to do this without delay."
