NEIGHBOURS favorite Chloe Brennan may be leaving Ramsay Street in the coming weeks, as Nicolette Stone appears to be trying to move on from her relationship with the adored Channel 5 soap character.
On Neighbours, Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) has recently been enjoying life as a single woman after finally putting her marriage to Pierce Greyson (Don Hany) behind her and reestablishing a friendship with Nicolette (Charlotte Chimes). The deputy Lassiters Hotel manager has also started a new chapter in her life, allowing Mackenzie Hargreaves (Georgie Stone) and Freya Wozniak (Phoebe Roberts), a newcomer to the Channel 5 soap, to move in with her. In the following moments, however, there will be another new addition to Ramsay Street as Nicolette bonds with a new character.
Nicolette joins several other Ramsay Street favorites on a trip away from Erinsborough during next week’s episodes of the daily serial drama.
Several characters are going through a rough patch right now, and they believe this will be the perfect distraction from their hectic life.
The group meets newbie Kiri Hua Durant (Gemma Bird Matheson), who will be a new regular face on the show, as they arrive and settle down.
The mother of one chooses to explore anything with Kiri after spending some time away from her love life to focus on her daughter, Isla.
Nicolette, who has been out of the game for a while, manages to make things a little awkward, but the newcomer is unfazed.
As they get to know each other better, the chemistry between them grows, and they finally want to kiss each other.
Things are looking better for the couple at the end of the trip, as they appear to be the next power couple on Ramsay Street.
Nicolette’s thoughts may be attracted back to Chloe and how she would respond if she found out her ex-girlfriend has a new lover.
The assistant hotel manager had always believed that if she was patient, she and her former lover could make things work.
However, now that Nicolette has taken a shine to Kiri, it’s probable that this path will be closed for good since the mother of one wishes to start over.
To avoid hurting Chloe’s feelings, Nicolette could ask Kiri if they could keep their relationship quiet at first.
Despite the fact that she would tell the newcomer that she no longer has feelings for Chloe, she would explain that she didn’t want to upset her.
This, however, maybe the worst conceivable method, as secrets have a tendency to erupt when they are ultimately revealed.
Chloe could walk in on the couple kissing, which would break her heart, especially because Nicolette has been distant recently.
As she put the jigsaw pieces together, she realized the couple was in a relationship, and it would be difficult to see them around.
Knowing she needs to start a new chapter in her life, Chloe may decide to move to another region of Australia to live with her brother, Mark Brennan (Scott McGregor).
For the beloved character, Ramsay Street would hold too many memories, and she would want Nicolette to focus on her new romance without worrying about how Chloe feels.
With the show’s 37-year run coming to an end later this year, this could be how the assistant hotel manager’s journey ends.
This could be the ideal send-off for the troubled singleton after so much heartbreak in Erinsborough.
Gemma Arterton, who plays Kiri, has spoken out about her character’s entrance, hinting that she will be at the center of a lot of turmoil.
Gemma explained: “I’m a big advocate for queer people playing queer roles. I’m excited about this representation for several reasons.
“I get to play myself, a queer Papua New Guinean Christian. That’s pretty monumental.
“I felt honoured to be a part of such an iconic Australian show, but I was also excited by what this representation would mean for a lot of people, especially on such a mainstream show.”
She’s also been described as a “nice girl at heart” who is “a little mysterious and seductive,” implying that the hidden romance would be exactly up her alley.
But does this couple have what it takes to last the distance, or will the holiday romance fizzle out quickly?
When weeks of speculation about whether the show would be rescued after Channel 5 cut financing, production company Fremantle has declared there is no longer any chance.
They stated to viewers in a statement: “We regret to inform you that after nearly 37 years and nearly 9000 episodes, Neighbours will be canceled in the summer.
“Following the loss of a key broadcast partner in the UK, and despite a search for alternative funding, we currently have no option but to rest the show.
“Everyone at Neighbours has been overwhelmed by the love and support from the audience since the news came out.
“The show has brought a sunny slice of Australia into the homes of millions of viewers around the world launching the careers of dozens of household names along the way.
“But as this chapter of Ramsay Street comes to a close, we promise to do everything we can to give the show the send-off it deserves.”
