Neighbours' Roxy discovers Harlow's fake boyfriend secret

·2-min read

Neighbours spoilers follow for UK viewers.

Neighbours teen Harlow Robinson has to come clean with Roxy Willis about her dating deception on UK screens next week.

A new storyline sees Harlow (Jemma Donovan) recruit barman Jesse Porter to be her fake boyfriend in a bid to fool her grandfather Paul Robinson.

As Paul and his wife Terese have both been hassling Harlow over her long-distance relationship with Brent Colefax, she tries to keep them off her back by insisting that it's over with him.

Harlow makes the fake split extra realistic by asking Jesse (Cameron Robbie) to pretend that they're an item. In reality, Jesse is in a relationship with Erinsborough High teacher Curtis Perkins.

In next week's episodes on Channel 5, Roxy (Zima Anderson) is spending some time outside the café when she takes a closer look at her surroundings through some binoculars.

In the distance, Roxy spots Jesse on a romantic date with Curtis (Nathan Borg).

Roxy feels terrible for Harlow as she believes that Jesse is cheating on her.

However, when Roxy drops the "bombshell" on Harlow, she's surprised by her nonplussed reaction.

Harlow reluctantly has to explain her subterfuge and reveals that she's actually still with Brent.

To make matters awkward, Harlow still wants her plan to remain top-secret so that Paul and Terese are fooled for a while longer. She even wants her friend Mackenzie Hargreaves kept in the dark.

With this in mind, Harlow swears Roxy to secrecy. Can Roxy manage to keep quiet?

Neighbours airs these scenes on Tuesday, July 27 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
