Neighbours spoilers follow from Australian-pace episodes, which some UK readers may prefer to avoid.
Neighbours has refreshed the opening titles on Australian screens today (September 22), with two significant changes.
The first is that Lucinda Cowden, who plays Melanie Pearson, has finally been added. Melanie has been on screens for several months since her return, and Digital Spy can confirm that Lucinda is a semi-regular, which is similar to Geoff Paine's status.
In the titles, Melanie is seen with Toadie and his two children Nell and Hugo.
This addition comes after Melanie won back Toadie Rebecchi at Erinsborough's recent film festival. The pair briefly broke up in the aftermath of Toadie's kiss with Rose Walker.
With Rose accepting defeat and wishing Toadie well, the titles change further indicates that Melanie and Toadie are back on track and fully committed to each other.
The second big addition is Charlotte Chimes' return as Nicolette.
After several weeks away from Erinsborough, Nicolette returned in the cliffhanger to Monday's episode with the real baby Isla.
Nicolette confirmed to a stunned David Tanaka and Aaron Brennan that the parents of the baby they've been raising are Britney Barnes and Leo Tanaka.
There looks to be plenty of drama ahead for the three of them, as Nicolette doesn't want to proceed with the original parenting arrangement of David and Aaron being Isla's primary carers.
In the titles, Nicolette is seen with David and Aaron (and a pram) – the three of them looking happy.
The fact that Nicolette is not with Chloe as she was before her disappearance suggests that there's a long way to go before the pair reunite – if it ever happens.
Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
