Neighbours spoilers follow for UK viewers.

Neighbours' Paul Robinson faces a heavy backlash on UK screens next week for his part in Brent Colefax's latest turn to crime.

Brent (Texas Watterston) tries to rob The Hive with Holden Brice (Toby Derrick) so that he can afford to run away with his brother Emmett Donaldson (Ezra Justin). Emmett arrives and persuades Brent to abandon his robbery plan, but Nicolette Stone (Charlotte Chimes) and her baby are put in danger after she confronts Holden at The Hive.

In upcoming scenes on Channel 5, Emmett is relieved to have intervened but is shocked to hear that Nicolette is badly injured and in hospital.

David Tanaka (Takaya Honda) and Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson) try to get to the bottom of whether Brent was behind the robbery.

But before Brent can say anything, Emmett speaks up and takes the blame in an attempt to protect his brother.

Despite his confession and the fact that he was at the scene of the crime, everyone struggles to believe that he is really capable of setting up a robbery like this.

David later tries to subtly encourage Brent to tell the truth about what really happened.

After much consideration, Brent decides to come clean, writing a letter before fleeing. In the letter, he takes responsibility for the robbery and names Holden as the man who was with him at The Hive.

Brent also leaves Harlow (Jemma Donovan) a separate letter. In it, he says he spiralled and turned to crime again after Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) lied and told him that she was going to break up with him.

Harlow is furious with Paul. She confronts her grandfather, and her anger only increases when Paul refuses to take any responsibility for Brent's actions.

Harlow eventually decides to move out for a few days and into Number 30.

Terese Willis (Rebekah Elmaloglou) backs Harlow on this occasion, pointing out to Paul that he can't deny the effects of his scheming.

How will Paul respond, and can he make things up with Harlow?

Neighbours airs these scenes on Wednesday, May 12 and Thursday, May 13 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
