Next week sees Neighbours air what Channel 5 describe as a ‘gripping week-long storyline’ which involves Jacka Hills and a lethal plot.
“In a week-long gripping drama, the lives of several Ramsay Street regulars will be changed forever – and there are lasting consequences for one of Erinsborough’s favourite characters.” – Channel 5 Commissioner Greg Barnett
Monday October 10th sees the start of a gripping week-long storyline in Channel 5’s Neighbours, when Jacka’s deadly plan for revenge coincides with Brad and Lauren’s celebration of their forthcoming nuptials. Tears of joy soon turn to tears of tragedy as events unfold, leaving at least one dead and two others fighting for their lives, with repercussions of the event dramatically impacting the residents of Ramsay St in the weeks and months to come.
Released from prison on a technicality, Jacka is out for revenge in the only way he knows how: sabotage. He’s already laid one lethal plan, but sees another opportunity to wreak havoc as Lauren and her Hens take to the skies for a Hot Air Balloon adventure. It’s not long, however, before the group realise something is wrong and the terrified party plummet to earth.
As friends and loved ones on the ground watch the unfolding horror, they rush to the crash site to save whoever they can. But things are never that straightforward: debris hampers their efforts and causes further chaos; sacrifices have to be made and one Ramsay St regular will be faced with an immense moral dilemma.
Find out whose fate lies in the balance by tuning in from October 10th. Fans are encouraged to share their thoughts using the hashtag #BalloonCrash.
The hot air balloon disaster follows a recent plane crash in rival aussie soap Home and Away.
