Naomi Canning (Morgana O’Reilly) sure knows how to make waves in Neighbours and next week will see her set up a saucy liaison in a storyline that would certainly be tricky to do while filming under new social distancing conditions.

Shocked by the proposition, both Chloe and Pierce tentatively agree. Although they assure each other the night will be fun and they’re excited to do it, it is clear that there are some nerves and that neither of them is fully committed to the idea.
Naomi on the other hand instantly sets about planning the evening and cannot wait for a night between the sheets with the residents of number 24. But when she arrives, there is awkwardness in the air while everyone waits for someone else to make the first move. Is the night doomed to fail?
With Naomi’s return stint on the show coming to an end, we will not be down a Canning for long as Neighbours recently announced the arrival of a new character, Levi Canning (Richie Morris). Sheila’s grandson, a policeman, will make his debut in the next few weeks and given his profession, he’ll no doubt be caught up in the drama in no time.
“Being a part of the Canning family is so humbling because they are such a fun and iconic family,” says Morris. “They provide not only loads of drama but also so much humour, I couldn’t ask for more
