Neighbours has released first-look pictures of Dipi Rebecchi and Pierce Greyson’s affair storyline, as the pair share a kiss.
In scenes airing next week, Dipi (Sharon Johal) and Pierce (Tim Robards) find comfort in each other’s company after their respective marriages to Shane Rebecchi (Nicholas Coghlan) and Chloe Brennan (April Rose Pengilly) continue to deteriorate.
Dipi is struggling with Shane’s drug addiction, while Pierce is finding it difficult to support Chloe following the tragic loss of their baby.
When Pierce tries to reach out to his wife, Chloe instead begins looking for Nicolette Stone’s (Charlotte Chimes) replacement as Fay’s carer. Pierce previously fired Nicolette after accusing her of trying to come between him and Chloe.
Chloe ends up opening up to Fay (Zoe Bertram), confessing that she is struggling to lean on her husband.
Wanting Chloe to focus on her marriage, Fay leaves for Adelaide again but not before approaching Nicolette with a request.
Chloe and Pierce then take part in one of Dipi’s cooking classes, hoping it will help their relationship, but the class only serves to highlight that they are not on the same wavelength.
Things only get worse when Shane interrupts the class and causes a scene, frustrating Dipi. Pierce decides to back Dipi and hits out at Shane, which leads to Dipi and Shane having a huge argument.
Pierce is also displeased when Chloe hesitates to reassure him that their marriage will be okay. Dipi and Pierce both separately flee from their partners for the night.
Shane comes close to taking drugs again following his argument with Dipi. Fortunately, Toadie (Ryan Moloney) is there to offer support, and Shane makes it through the night.
The next morning, Dipi and Pierce are further frustrated with their respective partners. Dipi is concerned by what happened with Shane the previous night, while an unhappy Pierce finds Chloe turning to Nicolette for support.
Dipi and Pierce then find each other and end up kissing. (Sharon Johal’s real-life husband acts as a body double for this intimate scene.)
Shane is surprised when Dipi appears to be understanding about his wobble the night before, while Chloe is similarly caught off-guard by Pierce’s patience. Chloe tells Pierce that she is committed to saving their marriage, but not long afterwards, she makes plans to travel to Adelaide alone to see her mother.
Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, October 12, Tuesday, October 13, Wednesday, October 14 and Thursday, October 15 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
