Neighbours rogue Paul Robinson is viciously attacked next week – with Gary Canning quickly becoming the prime suspect.

Paul (Stefan Dennis) is targeted by a mystery assailant after being caught out for meddling in his daughter Amy's relationship.

Viewers know that Paul and Sheila Canning have teamed up to sabotage Amy's future with Gary (Damien Richardson).

Next week, the story gathers pace as Amy realises that she still has feelings for Gary's son Kyle and needs to end her current relationship.

Just when it seems like Amy is about to switch back from father to son, Kyle is shocked to discover that Sheila and Paul have been stirring things. Despite knowing this could change everything, Kyle reluctantly reports back to Amy over what's been going on.

As Kyle had feared, Amy decides to delay breaking up with Gary – fearing that he'd blame it all on Sheila and Paul, rather than respecting it as her own decision.

Unaware of how close he came to losing Amy, livid Gary reacts badly to news of Sheila and Paul's meddling.

Paul retaliates with a brutally honest assessment of why he believes Kyle is better for Amy than Gary, which could be enough to push his enemy over the edge.

Later that night, Paul is brutally attacked and rushed to hospital, where he requires surgery to fix some internal bleeding.

Roxy Willis is strangely subdued over the incident, but later points the finger at Gary by claiming that she saw him at the scene of the crime. Is this true, or could she have lashed out after Paul rejected her romantic advances?

Neighbours airs these scenes on Thursday, July 25 and Friday, July 26 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
