 Michelle Scully Returns
April 28 2004

Tomorrow's episode in the UK will see the return of two characters to Ramsay Street, as part of a storyline that is set to turn Connor O'Neill's (Patrick Harvey) life upside-down. First comes the return of Carmella Cammeniti (Natalie Blair), daughter of Rocco (Robert Forza). As if the reappearance of one ex-girlfriend wasn't enough, youngest Scully daughter, Michelle (Kate Keltie), also comes back. Kate's return to the show is set to last for six weeks, but it certainly won't be an easy reunion for Connor and Michelle, as, along with Carmella, Lori Lee (Michelle Ang) is also returning, and she won't be alone!

 Logies Disappointment
April 18 2004

Neighbours has unfortunately not picked up anything at this year's TV Week Logie Awards, held tonight in Melbourne. The show was nominated for the first time in a few years for Most Popular Australian Drama, but lost to McLeod's Daughters. Meanwhile Home and Away newcomer Isabel Lucas beat Stephanie McIntosh (Sky Mangel) for Most Popular New Female Talent, while Delta Goodrem (Nina Tucker) lost to McLeod's Daughters' Lisa Chappell for Most Popular Actress and Australian presenter Rove McManus for the coveted Most Popular Personality Gold Logie.

 Shane Connor Sues
April 17 2004

Shane Connor (Joe Scully) is suing Grundy Television for over $200,000 for unfairly sacking him. Today's Herald Sun reports that Connor issued a Supreme Court writ seeking the wages he could have earned for the 10 months his contract had still to run, plus damages. Connor was sensationally sacked from Neighbours last year and as yet no reason for the dismissal has been forthcoming.

 Hello Goodbye
April 13 2004

Neighbours will see a few comings and goings over the next few weeks. Wednesday March 14th sees the sudden departure of Joe Scully (Shane Connor). Shane was controversially sacked from the show last October, so the character will simply disappear to his brother's farm until a proper resolution for him can be written. Meanwhile, the following episode sees the departure of a more short-term character. Trixie Tucker (Wendy Stapleton) vanishes into the night, unable to cope with returning to Erinsborough after the failure of her career and marriage. In real life, Wendy Stapleton comes to the end of her stint on the show, but with her screen daughter, Nina, played by Delta Goodrem, due to briefly return later this year, could we also be seeing Trixie back in Erinsborough?

Meanwhile, next week, there's a new arrival in Ramsay Street when Toadie's rebellious young cousin, Scott Timmins, comes to stay after getting himself in a bit of trouble with the police. Scott's portrayer, Ben Nicholas is interviewed in this week's copy of Inside Soap. In the same issue, there is also a feature with Carla Bonner (Steph Scully) and her two children on a day out.
