Neighbours spoilers follow for UK viewers.
Neighbours couple David Tanaka and Aaron Brennan are left devastated on UK screens next week as they realise they could lose Emmett Donaldson.
David (Takaya Honda) and Aaron (Matt Wilson) have spent the past few weeks fostering Emmett, but the arrangement could be cut short after some surprising news.
Scenes airing early next week explore further tensions between Emmett (Ezra Justin) and his foster parents.
The trouble comes as Emmett's mother Jenna (Anna Lise Phillips) has been fired from Lassiters after being caught stealing booze from the business.
Emmett suspects that David and Aaron snitched on Jenna after he confided in them about her latest struggles with her alcoholism.
After giving David and Aaron a hard time, Emmett is horrified to realise that he wrongly accused them – it was another employee at Lassiters who exposed Jenna's wrongdoing.
Emmett turns his anger towards Jenna instead, realising that she can't be trusted right now.
Afterwards, Emmett, Aaron and David settle back into a happy environment again, aware that it'll be a long time before Jenna proves herself as a fit parent.
While Aaron is busy at work, David suggests a "day of fun" for Emmett – keen to prove that he can be as entertaining as his husband is.
David's idea of fun differs from Emmett's, leading to some early struggles. However, when David gives back Emmett's PS4 – which they'd previously confiscated as a punishment – the day takes a turn for the better.
Later, just as David and Aaron feel they're settled into a strong routine with Emmett, an unexpected phone call threatens to change everything.
The pair learn that Emmett's aunt has returned from New Zealand and the adoption agency are considering letting him live with her permanently. Will they be saying goodbye to Emmett for good?
Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, August 31 and Friday, September 4 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
