Spoilers: Pregnant Nicolette embroiled in gambling danger in Neighbours

Nicolette (Charlotte Chimes) isn’t having an easy time of it. Not only has David (Takaya Honda) nearly run her into an early grave with the pressure he’s put her under in Neighbours, Ricardo is after his pound of flesh too, so to speak.

After his seedy little indecent proposal, Nic knew she had her work cut out for her in paying him back and keeping him sweet, but things are about to get a hell of a lot worse for the expectant mum.

Ricardo takes the pressure to the next level and slaps Nicolette with a lawsuit – he’s suing her not only for the money she stole, but damages as well.

Nic has barely been making enough money to pay back the original amount, let alone damages on top. The panic rises as she scrambles to come up with a solution and fast, otherwise she’ll be homeless and destitute when the baby comes.

And then something falls into her lap.

She stumbles across Hendrix’s dirty little secret, his gambling addiction. While she warns him that if he doesn’t come clean she’ll tell Pierce (Don Hany), it sets her on her own dangerous path.

Nic becomes entrenched in this dark world and begins bonding with evil Kane (Barry Conrad). They get chatting about their work at the Foundation, which is really him just laying the ground work and reeling her in. He offers her a chance to win some money that might just go some way to paying Ricardo off. Nicolette is at the tip of a slippery slope, and she’s about to take the first step…

Scenes air from Monday 1st February on Channel 5.
