Neighbours actress Jodi Anasta has teased her character's upcoming labour scenes at the end of the year.

Jodi portrays Elly Conway in the Australian soap, and during an interview in Inside Soap's Yearbook 2020, she explains how Elly finds herself in a "rather hostile situation".

"One of Elly's last scenes of the year is when she gives birth," she reveals. "It's very dramatic, and a lot is at stake because it involves a dangerous character – she happens to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.

"It turns out to be everything a birth shouldn't be, and I think viewers are going to be surprised by who delivers the baby!"

Meanwhile, the actress also says that her favourite filming experiences this year were "the really intimate scenes between Chloe and Elly".

She adds: "I remember April Rose Pengilly [who plays Chloe] and I went to the bosses and spoke to them about adding a scene, not sexual or anything, just something that would show the intimacy and beautiful bond between these two women.

"The scene was exactly how we pictured it would be, and it was really exciting to do. It showed the different elements of their relationship, and it was just really special."
