At the time of Neighbours, Paul (played by Stefan Dennis) and Terese’s (Rebekah Elmaloglou) marriage is in its best role. As the sole owners of the Lassiters Hotel complex, with Pierce Greyson (Don Hany) out of the way, the pair have become the ultimate power couple on Ramsay Street. The only moment in their relationship that the husband and wife have ever hit any barriers is when the former lovers of the businessman try to lift their heads and cause trouble. It seems the return of Melanie (Lucinda Cowden) could spark some mischief, but could it bridge a divide on the Channel 5 soap between Paul and his beloved partner?
For the first time in 30 years, the actress who plays Melanie, Lucinda, graces the streets of Erinsborough as her character takes part in a guest stint.
Sheila Canning (Colette Mann) will initially revolve around this when she seeks to break up Clive Gibbons (Geoff Paine) and Jane Harris (Annie Jones).
This will later lead, however, to the former face of Ramsay Street engaging with both past and present mates.
Unfortunately, as the businessman is forced to relive the night of passion the pair spent together three decades ago, their reunion with Paul seems to be something of a cat and mouse game.
When the schemer had to come face-to-face with one of his former lovers, it was never easy, so could Melanie make things difficult for Terese and him?
In 1987, just two years after the show premiered on television, Melanie was introduced to audiences for the first time.
The famous character’s plots crossed over with Paul’s on a couple of occasions during her initial tenure on the weekday serial drama.
Therefore, apart from sleeping together, the couple may have a very colorful past together, and one that the businessman would like his wife not to know about.
Discussing making a comeback after so long, there is some awkwardness between her ate-ego and the hotel director, soap star Lucinda has teased.
At first, Paul hides from her, and that goes on for a couple of weeks,” explained Lucinda.” The positive thing about Melanie, however, is that she can still be heard coming from you,’ she told Inside Soap.
However, when she eventually gets her hands on her former boyfriend, is Melanie going to push him to confront her past?
In doing so, a moment from his childhood, he would have to confess to Terese that he is not proud of it and has never told anyone else.
Seeing her husband in a whole new light, the wife of the businessman could decide once and for all to call time for their relationship.
