In UK episodes airing next week, Neighbours will hint at a possible romance between Kiri Durant and Chloe Brennan.
Nicolette Stone (Charlotte Chimes) and Kiri (Gemma Bird Matheson) had a romance during the River Bend episodes, but Kiri (Gemma Bird Matheson) doesn’t want to push things further after a scheming incident. Glen Donnelly discusses some of Nicolette’s previous wrongdoings.
Glen (Richard Huggett) thinks he’s done enough to keep Kiri away from Erinsborough and keep the mystery that he’s her long-lost father a secret, but he’s surprised to see her again in later scenes.
Kiri is hired as the vineyard’s new events manager by Leo Tanaka (Tim Kano), and while Glen is concerned that his secret may be revealed, Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) gets along swimmingly with Kiri as she gives her a tour of the vineyard.
Chloe is seeking for a new roommate at Number 24 and is considering offering Kiri the extra room.
Kiri is invited to spend time with Mackenzie Hargreaves (Georgie Stone) and Freya Wozniak by Chloe (Phoebe Roberts). Mackenzie notices a possible spark between Chloe and Kiri, but Chloe claims she’s simply concerned about filling the room.
Chloe offers Kiri the room after Mackenzie and Freya give her the thumbs up.
It doesn’t take long for Nicolette, who is still devastated, to learn that Kiri is moving in next door, and things start to get awkward.
Kiri considers making a U-turn and declining Chloe’s offer, but after an honest chat regarding Nicolette, Chloe persuades her to accept the room.
Jane Harris (Annie Jones), on the other hand, argues to Nicolette that this is an opportunity to win Kiri over. However, with the possibility of a romance between Chloe and Kiri – which star Gemma Bird Matheson recently hinted at – the scenario might become even more complicated in the coming weeks.
And that’s not the only thing that could go wrong. Chloe, Kiri, and Nicolette are completely unaware that Glen is not happy with Kiri moving into Number 24.
