    Exclamation Beatrix (Bea) Nilsson (Bonnie Anderson)

    Neighbours is gearing up to introduce soap fans to Elly Conway's estranged half-sister Beatrix 'Bea' Nilsson and they're bringing a huge Australian music star in too.

    Australia's Got Talent winner Bonnie Anderson has joined the soap as a new regular, playing wild child Bea who's introduced as Elly's (Jodi Anasta) half-sister and Neighbours' matriarch Susan Kennedy's (Jackie Woodburne) niece in Bonnie's first major acting role.

    Bea and Elly have a tempestuous history, and Bea's unexpected arrival leaves Elly fearing that her life if about to be turned upside down as Bea brings with her a dark past and a very familiar looking boyfriend.

    Bonnie shot to fame after winning the first season of Australia's Got Talent back in 2007 when she was just 12 years old, and has previously toured Australia with UK The X Factor star Olly Murs too.

    "I do pinch myself, this is an amazing job to have, even though I started filming in February, it still feels surreal being on set, seeing how it all happens and being a part of it," Bonnie said.

    "To be able to show a different side of me, and work on characters is really fun and I am really lucky to be here."

    Neighbours executive producer Jason Herbison added: "We were so impressed with Bonnie when we first met her that we created the character of 'Bea' especially for her. She is a true talent and a perfect fit for Neighbours I can't wait to see what the future holds."

    Bonnie's first episode of Neighbours airs on Channel 5 in the UK on Friday, May 18.

    Neighbours reveals newcomer Bea's first scenes as her arrival shocks Elly Conway.

    Elly's sister is here to stay!


    Neighbours has revealed a first look at Elly Conway's sister Beatrix making her arrival in Erinsborough.

    Show bosses have just announced the casting of Aussie singer Bonnie Anderson in the role of Beatrix, who's a new regular for the show.

    Beatrix or Bea for short makes her first appearance on Friday, May 18, when Elly is shocked to realise that she's in the area.

    Elly (Jodi Anasta) is thrown when she spots a familiar-looking girl across the Lassiter's complex and decides to follow her.

    In the end, Elly loses sight of the new arrival but it's not long until she'll be reunited with Bea properly.

    At the weekend, it was revealed that Bea's arrival will spark some big new storylines as she has a tempestuous history with Elly, which could turn the Ramsay Street schoolteacher's life upside down.

    With Bea's dark past and a very familiar looking boyfriend, viewers can be assured that Bea's arrival will be anything but quiet.

    Bonnie said recently: "I do pinch myself, this is an amazing job to have. Even though I started filming in February, it still feels surreal being on set, seeing how it all happens and being a part of it. To be able to show a different side of me and work on characters is really fun and I am really lucky to be here."

    Neighbours' executive producer Jason Herbison added: "We were so impressed with Bonnie when we first met her that we created the character of 'Bea' especially for her. She is a true talent and a perfect fit for Neighbours I can't wait to see what the future holds."

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Friday, May 18 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.

    Watch out, Ramsay Street residents Finn Kelly is back in town! And it seems he's already up to his conniving ways.

    The disgraced teacher (Rob Mills) has returned to Erinsborough with new girlfriend Beatrix (Bonnie Anderson).

    It can't be a coincidence that Bea is actually Elly's (Jodi Anasta) half-sister.

    Returning to Ramsay Street after years on the streets, Bea is hoping to reunite with her estranged family. And while Elly welcomes her sibling with open arms, Bea is reluctant to open up.

    "Bea wants to be close with her family, but she can't be, because she has no trust," Neighbours newcomer Bonnie, 23, tells TV WEEK.

    "She's been let down too many times."

    Hoping to bond, Elly plans a day of quality time with Bea. But the younger Conway appears resentful of the relationships Elly has formed with the Kennedys and even Xanthe.

    In another ominous sign, it's clear Finn has quite a hold on Bea.

    We last saw Finn being led off to a prison hospital. Viewers may remember the manipulative teacher plotting to steal Susan's (Jackie Woodburne) job as school principal.

    When his dastardly plan to swap Susan's MS medication for painkillers was thwarted, Finn tried to flee to Hong Kong, with an infatuated Xanthe in tow.

    But the pair were pulled off the plane by police before they could get away.

    Finn's undoing came when Xanthe managed to record his confession before he suddenly collapsed. Finn was taken to hospital and diagnosed with a life-threatening brain aneurysm.

    Now, as Bea returns from her reunion to debrief with her boyfriend, the young brunette looks to be wrapped around Finn's finger.

    "She's got a heart of gold, she really has," Bonnie says. "And when she loves, it's all-in or nothing with her. It's very obvious with her relationship."

    But we soon discover there's more to their romance than meets the eye when Bea calls Finn "Patrick".

    Bea really has no idea who her boyfriend is. So what is Finn up to?

    Neighbours fury as Bea Nilsson feels betrayed by Elly Conway again
    Mark Brennan inadvertently sparks a row between the sisters


    http://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/neig...nway-dyslexia/

    Neighbours'Bea Nilsson is left outraged next week as her sister Elly Conway spreads the word that she may have dyslexia.

    Bea (Bonnie Anderson) finds herself the centre of attention as Elly tries to support her following the recent dramas with their mum Liz.

    Elly (Jodi Anasta) is determined to show Bea that they're a united force from now on, but she crosses the line after taking a peek at some of the written work she's been doing for her vocational course.

    Through reading the work, Elly spots that Bea might have dyslexia and decides to discreetly share the information with her sibling's boss Mark Brennan (Scott McGregor).

    Mark then tries to help in his own way by making concessions for Bea at the garage, but she's embarrassed when she realises what's going on.

    Later on, Bea angrily confronts Elly in the middle of the school courtyard with a number of the students watching on. Elly is mortified as Bea furiously demands that she should stay out of her business from now on.

    Elly does later apologise for overstepping the mark and tries to be there for Bea in a less intrusive way, but Bea is still unsure how to relate to her big sister and continues to isolate herself.

    However, with word that Bea will soon start dating Ned Willis, could he be the unexpected source of support that she really needs right now?

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Tuesday, August 7 and Wednesday, August 8 at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5.
