Neighbours has revealed that Terese Willis has a surprising connection with new character Vance Abernethy.

Former Home and Away star Conrad Coleby has been cast in the guest role of Vance, who'll be introduced as the boyfriend of new regular Roxy Willis.

The storyline begins next week when Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) receives a visit from her former sister-in-law Gemma Willis, who's Roxy's mum.

Beth Buchanan has briefly reprised the role of Gemma, who was last seen on the Aussie soap in 1991 – then known as Gemma Ramsay.

Gemma reveals that she'd like Roxy (Zima Anderson) to move to Melbourne and stay with Terese, believing that she's the ideal person to get the wild child on the straight and narrow.

When Terese sees Roxy's rebellious behaviour first hand, she's not too sure whether she wants the responsibility of dealing with her dramas.

Despite this, Gemma pushes the issue – insisting that Terese's own troubled youth in Darwin will mean that she's best placed to get Roxy back on track.

Terese eventually agrees to a trial period and later opens up to her daughter Imogen (Ariel Kaplan) about her teenage years.

Imogen is surprised as Terese reveals that an old boyfriend led her down a wild path back in the day.

Terese and Imogen are both unaware that this man – Vance – is now Roxy's older lover. Is there trouble ahead when Vance inevitably comes to Ramsay Street?
