    Exclamation Shane Rebecchi (Nicholas Coghlan) and his family join

    Neighbours is shaking up Ramsay Street once again with the arrival of a brand new family.

    Toadie Rebecchi's older brother Shane will be heading up the five-strong clan when he returns to Erinsborough after 22 years away.

    Nowhere Boys and House Husbands star Nicholas Coghlan will be playing the role of Shane, taking over from previous actor Greg O'Meara.

    Shane is the eldest son of Angie and Big Kev, who previously appeared in a brief run of episodes in 1995. Back then, Shane's time on the Street resulted in a trip to jail – and then a prison break!

    Now a fully-fledged Neighbours regular, Shane will be returning to our screens alongside his wife Dipi, who's played by Sharon Johal, and their two children Yashvi and Kirsha.


    TV newcomers Olivia Junkeer and Vani Dhir have been cast as Yashvi and Kirsha, while drama graduate Scarlet Vas completes the set as Dipi's spirited younger sister Mishti Sharma.

    Neighbours producer Jason Herbison commented: "Shane Rebecchi is one of the great untapped characters from Neighbours history. I'm delighted to welcome him back to Ramsay Street along with his beautiful wife, two children and sister-in-law. It's a great new chapter of the Rebecchi family."

    Channel 5's commisioning editor Greg Barnett added: "It's great to be expanding the Rebecchi family further. There'll be drama and intrigue from the moment they arrive."

    When Shane first makes his return, it's sister-in-law Mishti who comes along with him, but you'll just have to tune in to find out why they arrive together, where Shane's wife Dipi is and what these new arrivals have to hide.

    Here's some extra gossip on the new family...

    Shane "Puffer" Rebecchi

    A major troublemaker in his youth, Shane spent a few years in prison before rehabilitating and transitioning back into the community. Ashamed of the way he treated his family and too proud to ask for their support, Shane relocated to the country town of Bourke, working for a company selling farming machinery.

    While there he caught the eye of Dipi, a waitress who worked nearby. After getting together, they went on to have three children and enjoy a loving partnership. Shane has always felt like a failure next to his brother Toadie, and he's determined to re-write that now that he has his own family.

    Dipi Rebecchi

    Dipi is a ray of sunshine to those around her. Enthusiastic, bubbly and having an infectious lust for life, she always sees the best in people.

    Dipi's family are easily the most important thing in her life and she's overjoyed about finally moving to the 'big smoke' of Erinsborough. She's also incredibly excited to be taking control of her own café and she can't believe that Shane has made this happen for her.

    Mishti Sharma

    Mishti is Dipi Rebecchi's sister. She is a police officer with a passion for physical fitness. She grew up in Sydney, but is keen for a fresh start now that she's arrived in Erinsborough.

    While Mishti seems enthusiastic about what this new place has to offer, there's also an air of sadness about her. What dark secret could she be carrying?

    Kirsha Rebecchi

    Kirsha is the youngest daughter of Shane and Dipi. She inherited her mother's natural intelligence and she loves nothing more than to be reading about animals or geography.

    Like her father, Kirsha is slightly shy and is quite intimidated by new social situations. She often uses her books as a shield, hiding behind them to avoid interacting with people. Moving to Erinsborough is a huge change for Kirsha, and while she's trying her best to stay positive for her parents' sakes, she's quietly terrified about whether she'll be accepted here.

    Yashvi Rebecchi

    Yashvi is the oldest daughter of Shane and Dipi. Unlike her well-behaved sister, Yashvi is a boisterous troublemaker who's fearless and confident. There's nothing she loves more than a new audience, wanting to try out her favourite tricks and jokes on them.

    Yashvi is happiest when she's the centre of attention. Often in trouble at school, Yashvi is constantly causing headaches for Dipi and Shane. She's by no means a bad girl or even a schemer – she's just a bit of an opportunist.

    The Rebecchis take up residency on Ramsay Street from April 17. Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.

    I was hoping Paige would leave with Lauren and Brad

    I think she will move in with Elle or Amy

    I like the idea of more family for Toad
