A staff member on Neighbours has responded after continuity errors related to the ongoing Dee Bliss storyline have been spotted by fans.

A string of revelations has come out this month, as spoilers have revealed that a DNA test will confirm Dee and Andrea Somers (both played by Madeleine West) are identical twin sisters.

Furthermore, viewers will learn in upcoming episodes that Dee was adopted as a baby into the Bliss family.

This presents a continuity mistake, as in 2017 Andrea faked a DNA test to prove that she was Dee. The DNA was compared to DNA belonging to Dee's sister Cecile – but if Dee and Cecile aren't related by blood, then the test should have come back as negative.

Earlier this year, there was another contradiction related to Cecile as they claimed that her funeral happened in 2009.

However, in 2017 it was mentioned that Cecile had died the previous year.

Story editor Shane Isheev acknowledged the continuity errors on Twitter, responding to comments from fans.

"Getting things right is extremely important to the team," he wrote.

"A few of us have encyclopedic knowledge of #Neighbours' history, which is great when revisiting past events, but unfortunately due to the speed we work, errors are occasionally made and no one is more disappointed than us!"
