Neighbours spoilers follow.
Neighbours star Sharon Johal has responded to viewers trolling her over Dipi Rebecchi and Pierce Greyson's affair storyline.
Dipi and Pierce have been hooking up and cheating on their respective spouses Shane Rebecchi and Chloe Brennan on the Australian soap, but Sharon – who plays Dipi – has been targeted by online abuse.
The star posted on Instagram promoting the next episode – which is set to be a big one for the storyline, as Chloe finally discovered the truth about the affair – but also had a message for the trolls.
"To those trolling me direct, please remember that I am an actor playing a role in a story I did not create or have any control over," she wrote. Also, there are two people who have messed up in this situation, not just the female.
"Stay calm, folks! STAY CALM! There are bigger things happening in the world!"
Sharon added: "To those asking if I condone cheating – not that I have to answer that, but of course bloody not!
WHAT. DID. YOU (WE). DO?!! (Insert human telling doggy off voice) SH*Ts about to hit the proverbial fan in Erinsborough tonight and the ramifications will be HUGE. Tune into @neighbours right now on @10peachau to see how it goes down! (Apologies UK and ROW, you are a little behind x) *to those trolling me direct, please remember that I am an actor playing a role in a story I did not create or have any control over. Also there are two people who have messed up in this situation, not just the female. Stay calm folks! STAY CALM! There are bigger things happening in the world! **also how hard is it to take photos WITHOUT touching!! Apologies for the awkward posing with the lovely @donhany and I (who unfortunately had to deal with the aftermath of the lovely @mrtimrobards hehe) - I can confirm we never touched once so technically no affair was had? 😆x ***to those asking if I condone cheating - not that I have to answer that but of course bloody not! I even made sure I took my hubby to work so I didn’t have to “actor cheat” either! (okay so that was a lame covid joke but hey I’m just over here trying to lighten the mood don’t @ me) HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND FOLKS! #neighbours #unmissabledrama #watchnow #10peach #channel10 #dipirebecchi #piercegrayson #rebecchis #everybodyneedsgoodneighbours #drama

Chloe found out about Dipi and Pierce when she walked in on them in bed. Nicolette Stone had a hand in Chloe's discovery, as she learned the truth a few days earlier.
