Neighbours' Mark Brennan will find himself drawn into the new Dee Bliss secret next week.

Mark (Scott McGregor) is shellshocked when Shane and Dipi Rebecchi confide in him with the big news that Dee may still be alive and out there somewhere.

As the happy couple settle into Number 30 after moving out of Number 32, they're reminded of the crucial information that Toadie's wife Sonya shared before she died.

Sonya told Shane (Nicholas Coghlan) about her intriguing conversation with Andrea Somers, who claimed that a random man at the Salamanca Markets had confused her with somebody else. Andrea took this as a clue that he was talking about Dee, 16 years on from her supposed death.

Shane and Dipi (Sharon Johal) know there isn't much they can do while Toadie is away, but they decide to reach out to Mark for his insight.

As well as being surprised to hear of Dee's possible survival, Mark is also struck to realise that this was the secret Sonya never got the chance to tell him before she passed away.

Mark suggests that Shane and Dipi should try to make contact with Andrea in the hope of getting more information out of her.

Afterwards, a struggling Mark kicks himself for not being there for Sonya when she needed him in her final days. Elly Conway tries her best to support her husband, knowing that the pain of Sonya's death is still very raw for him.

Madeleine West, who plays Dee/Andrea, recently confirmed that she'd returned to filming at Neighbours – so it seems that answers are coming in the not-too-distant future.

Neighbours airs these scenes on Thursday, April 4 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
