Neighbours has confirmed new details of an upcoming storyline for Mackenzie Hargreaves now that Georgie Stone has been promoted to series regular on the soap.

In scenes that are set to air early next month, Mackenzie arrives after Gary Canning's (Damien Richardson) funeral with an important question to ask the Rebecchis.

Looking to talk her problems through with someone, Mackenzie then turns to Roxy (Zima Anderson) and reveals that her aunt Trish is moving to Fremantle for work and has told Mackenzie that she can only stay in Erinsborough if the Rebecchis agree to take her in.

Later, Dipi and Shane reconcile their differences after they receive some much-needed advice from the latter's brother Toadie (Ryan Moloney) and start to come to terms with their grief over Gary's death.

Seeing the twosome in higher spirits, Mackenzie gears up to make her proposal but something Toadie says soon throws a spanner in the works.

Desperate, Mackenzie and Roxy conjure up a plan to keep the former from leaving: Mackenzie will tell her aunt that she's staying at Number 22, but she'll actually stay living in Trish's apartment instead.

To convince Trish to let Mackenzie stay, though, Roxy will need to play the good girl of the house. Will the pair's plot work?

Neighbours airs these scenes on Wednesday, April 1, Thursday, April 2 and Friday, April 3 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
