Neighbours spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.
Neighbours' Naomi Canning may have only returned to Erinsborough on Australian screens recently, but she's already gearing up to create quite the stir when she reveals her romantic past with Chloe Brennan's husband Pierce Greyson.
According to TV Soap Magazine, after agreeing to help Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) with her ever-growing list of tasks to do at Lassiter Hotel, Naomi (Morgana O'Reilly) can't believe it when she lays eyes on Pierce (Tim Robards) for the first time in years.
Excited, she explains their history to nephew Kyle (Chris Milligan), recalling the palpable chemistry between them and how Pierce was keen to start up a relationship with her at the time despite her protestations. Now, she can't help but wonder what would have happened if they'd have given it a go.
Disaster almost strikes when Naomi goes out for after-work drinks with Chloe and almost lets slip about her attraction.
Fortunately though, the latter confirms that she's married to the object of her affection before she can make the awkward confession. But not giving into her old habits and pursuing him proves hard, so she orchestrates a plan to channel all of their work interactions through Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis).
However, that comes with its own set of problems, when Paul's wife Teresa (Rebekah Elmaloglou) starts getting uncomfortable with how close Naomi and her spouse are becoming.
Why? Well, because they used to be engaged. And when Pierce tries to zap the tension, Naomi mistakes it for him being jealous!
Things escalate when Naomi gives Pierce an intimate massage, forcing her to admit her lingering feelings.
Elsewhere, Paul notices the former couple rekindling their spark and sensing a way to screw with Pierce, he tells all to Chloe. Will the new friends ever learn to fully trust one another again?
Neighbours airs on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK). It also airs on weekdays in Australia, at 6.30pm on 10 Peach.
