Neighbours airs a shocking new Dee Bliss twist

Warning: This article contains storyline details from Monday's Neighbours that some readers may prefer to avoid.

If you thought Neighbours could never pull off a huge soap surprise, think again.

The Aussie show just aired a jaw-dropping moment that nobody saw coming as Madeleine West reappeared on our screens once again, five months on from the end of the Fake Dee saga. But hang on a minute, could she have been playing the real deal this time?

Monday's shocking episode of Neighbours saw estranged couple Toadie and Sonya Rebecchi meet for another marriage counselling session.

The pair desperately hoped they could get things back on track, but Sonya ultimately told Toadie that he needed to resolve his grief over the death of Dee before they stood any chance of making their relationship work.

Clearly tempting fate, Toadie later told her: "We're going to have to find a way through this, though, aren't we? Dee's dead. Andrea is long gone. From now on, it's just you and me."

Sadly for Sonya, it seems like the Neighbours producers have other ideas as the very next scene saw Dee wearing a wedding dress in an unknown location. OMG!

A mystery man then approached and told Dee that she looked "miles away", prompting her to reply: "I'm fine. I was just thinking about old times."

So, has Fake Dee found a new guy to target with a cruel con? Or was this actually the real Dee, back from the dead after 14 years? We couldn't help noticing that she seemed a lot softer than evil Andrea ever was, so was that a clue that Dee really is back? Whatever's going on, it's all very exciting.

Don't expect any immediate answers from Neighbours, who even kept the character's true identity out of the closing titles. The credits only said there had been a "Special appearance by Madeleine West", keeping us all guessing over whether she was playing Fake Dee or Real Dee.

Although it's fair to say Neighbours had dropped a few hints that the Dee saga wasn't over, they kept Madeleine's appearance today as a complete secret, giving fans a huge surprise as they watched.

When we quizzed Neighbours producer Jason Herbison about Real Dee back in March, he told us: "I respect that she's a beloved character and many fans want to see her alive."

Looks like he wasn't lying!
