The following week on Neighbours in the UK, Clive confesses a terrible episode from his past as Nicolette and Byron accuse him of cheating on Jane.
Beginning on Monday, July 11 in the UK, and on Tuesday, July 19, in Australia, these sequences will be broadcast.
Are two of the show’s longest-running characters destined to be split up as Neighbours reaches its final few weeks?
Since the inception of Neighbours in the late 1980s, Jane Harris (Annie Jones) and Clive Gibbons (Geoff Paine) have played key roles. After parting ways in the early 1990s, both actors have since made frequent appearances in Erinsborough.
When Jane first arrived back, she met up with her old friend Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis), but she soon discovered that Paul was still in love with Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou). At the Lassiters Wedding Expo, she later wed her ex-husband Des Clarke (Paul Keane), but they soon parted ways.
While this was going on, Clive, who was now the chief operating officer of Erinsborough Hospital, quickly started dating Sheila Canning on and off (Colette Mann). Clive once started seeing Beverly Robinson (Shaunna O’Grady) during one of his and Sheila’s on-again-off-again phases, only to cheat on her with Sheila shortly after.
After some time had passed, Jane and Clive found themselves together. For the past few years, they have been a solid and secure relationship.
But now that Byron, Jane’s kid, has arrived (Joe Klocek), things have changed, and it’s about to become clear that Clive and Jane are not as stable as they seem.
Christine Stephen-character Daly’s Danielle Pendlebury, one of Byron’s gigolo clients, is living a double life. At a family supper this week, he meets Clive for the first time. He immediately recognises Clive’s voice and realises that there is a connection between Clive and his client.
He surmises that Clive and Danielle may be having an affair after adding two and two.
He joins forces with his sister Nicolette (Charlotte Chimes) to look into Clive, but things are about to become heated when Byron is caught spying and Nicolette unearths some damning information.
As Byron tries to figure out Danielle’s link to Clive on Monday (UK: Monday, July 11; Australia: Tuesday, July 19), he is caught in the act.
He is immediately fired by Danielle, which makes his inquiry much more difficult.
He has no idea that his sister is about to obtain the necessary proof.
At Danielle’s home, Clive and Danielle engage in some physical contact as Nicolette sneakily sneaks a photo of the pair’s accusatory encounter via a window while hiding in the background.
Another picture from the following week shows them appearing to be about to kiss each other as Nicolette is left speechless as they place their hands on each other’s faces.
After showing Byron the pictures, the two siblings are now convinced their mother is being unfaithful. It’s impossible to dispute based on the images, but is Clive just being a prankster or is there something more sinister going on?
The next day, Clive is forced to tell Jane the truth about a dishonourable episode in his past after Byron and Nicolette accuse him of cheating.
Jane is shocked by the shocking revelation, and she also needs explanations from Danielle.
The secrets don’t stop there, though. When Danielle exposes some stunning secrets of their own, things get even worse.
Clive, How are you doing?
Fans of Neighbours are speculating whether this most recent event may cause Clive and Jane to divorce, allowing them to make amends with their ex-partners.
There are only a few weeks left, and we already know that over 30 characters, some of whom have not yet been revealed, will make a final appearance.
Will Jane and Mike Young (Guy Pearce), or Des Clarke, who both appear in the show’s closing episodes, be reunited? We won’t have to wait long to find out because Neighbours’ final episode will show on Thursday, July 28 in Australia and on Friday, July 29 in the UK.
