    Neighbours' David Tanaka to make accusation over threatening notes
    David's paranoia grows after Gareth's death.

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...atening-notes/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours' David Tanaka will make a big accusation over the threatening notes he's been receiving in next week's UK episodes, as his guilt over Gareth Bateman's death continues to weigh on him.

    David (Takaya Honda) and Freya Wozniak (Phoebe Roberts) are both desperately trying to hide their involvement in Gareth (Jack Pearson)'s death, as he lost his life following the carnage during the River Bend getaway.

    Criminal Gareth's reign of terror came to a halt after Freya crashed the minibus he'd hijacked, sending him flying through the windscreen. Freya and David made the joint decision not to try to treat seriously injured Gareth, who then died due to his injuries

    David has been wracked with guilt ever since, and his situation will become even worse when he receives an anonymous, threatening note on his desk at work. The letter simply reads: "I know what you did."

    Next week, David's fears over the mystery note continue to grow and he seeks out Freya, sharing his worries that somebody is aware of what they did to Gareth.

    Freya begrudgingly admits that she might have given Gareth's ex-girlfriend Emma reason to be suspicious, following Emma's accusations that the pair didn't do enough to save his life.

    David is furious with Freya, particularly as she has been so concerned with the fact that he might slip up. Freya tries to convince David that he can trust her and that everything will work out, but David doesn't believe she's as trustworthy as she wants him to believe.

    As the week goes on, David feels wracked with guilt over thoughts of what happened to Gareth. His upset then only grows when he receives another anonymous threatening note, and this time it mentions his family.

    With David's paranoia building, and with nobody else to turn to, Freya decides that it's time to take action ? which is easier said than done when they're being confronted by a faceless threat.

    A panicked David accosts his colleague and former friend Dean Covey (Travis Cotton), who he recently fell out with over Dean's attempts to make a move on him, suspecting he might be the mystery blackmailer due to Dean's grudge against him. However, Dean seems to know nothing about the situation.

    Freya hits upon a new idea and decides to take David into the bush in search of the OPA.

    David's husband, Aaron Brennan (Matt Wilson), meanwhile, starts to notice David's paranoia as he recovers from his own River Bend injuries. As the pressure mounts, how long will David be able to keep his guilty secret hidden for?

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, April 4, Thursday, April 7 and Friday, April 8 at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Tuesday, April 26, Monday, May 2 and Tuesday, May 3 at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).

    Neighbours star Tim Kano reveals new Paul Robinson scheme
    "It's intimate for Leo, and he's keen to shield Montana from Paul's devious nature."

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...-tim-kano-leo/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Tim Kano, who plays Leo Tanaka on Neighbours, has divulged details about Paul Robinson's pending plot to once again put business before family.

    Upcoming episodes will find Paul (Stefan Dennis) privy to Leo and Montana's tryst. But instead of addressing their moment of passion, the business tycoon will use what he's seen for his own benefit.

    Speaking to Inside Soap about the scheme, Tim said Paul arrives at the vineyard and spies on the pair.

    He explained, "At that point, Leo's attempting to end things with Montana, but it's while they reconcile that Paul sees them together [...] And he knows exactly what's going on."

    Paul seizes the opportunity because he's "currently embroiled in a messy divorce with Terese," Tim added. "So he takes the chance to put Fashion Week in jeopardy ? even if it means exposing Leo and Montana in the process."

    Using the situation to his advantage, Tim explained that Paul "takes what he's seen between Leo and Montana, and plans to use it against Terese ? which as ever is his main motivation!"

    Tim also shared that his character attempts to protect Montana from Paul's machinations, because he develops "quite strong" feelings for her.

    "It's intimate for Leo, and he's keen to shield Montana from Paul's devious nature," he added.

    Unfortunately for Paul, his attempts to put business before family backfire as plans for Fashion Week push on.

    Will Paul's accusations ultimately serve to draw Leo and Montana closer together, or tear them apart?

    Neighbours' Aaron Brennan to discover David Tanaka's guilty secret
    Aaron is horrified to find out what David has been hiding.

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...tanaka-secret/

    Neighbours spoilers follow for Australian and UK viewers.

    Neighbours' Aaron Brennan is set to find out what his husband David Tanaka has been hiding from him in upcoming scenes, as David's huge secret is finally exposed.

    David (Takaya Honda) has been wracked with guilt ever since he and Freya Wozniak (Phoebe Roberts) decided not to try to treat a seriously injured Gareth Bateman (Jack Pearson) after the criminal's reign of terror at River Bend came to an end in an accident. Gareth later died from his injuries.

    David's upset over the fallout from the incident has been made ten times worse by the fact that he has since been receiving anonymous, threatening notes from somebody who claims to know what he did and, despite David's accusations so far, he is still no closer to finding out who his blackmailer is.

    In scenes to air next week in the UK and next month in Australia, Aaron (Matt Wilson) will discover one of the notes from David's mystery blackmailer and he demands an explanation as to what is going on.

    David is forced to confess everything to his husband and Aaron is left reeling by the shock revelations, before heading off in search of Freya for answers.

    Left alone, worried David fears that Aaron will never look at him in the same way again.

    Thankfully, when Aaron returns, he assures David that he still loves him and that they will manage to get through this situation together.

    However, later in the week, things aren't looking good for the couple as the blackmailer continues to demand cash, and the ransom deadline is fast approaching.

    Aaron, David and Freya scrape together what they can but they are still dangerously short on the amount that is being demanded from them and the trio start to consider pawning off some of their most treasured items.

    But it turns out that Freya has a mysterious option up her sleeve. She's very reluctant to use it, but desperate times call for desperate measures.

    What will Freya suggest and will it be enough to save her and David from being further exposed?

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, April 11 and Friday, April 15 at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Wednesday, May 4 and Wednesday, May 11 at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).

    Neighbours' David Tanaka makes a worrying decision over his future
    Will he come out the other end of this ordeal?

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...n-over-future/

    Neighbours spoilers follow for UK and Australian viewers.

    In the upcoming episode of Neighbours (at UK pace), David Tanaka (Takaya Honda)'s future and relationship will be on shaky ground as he faces the fallout of his involvement in Gareth Bateman's death.

    The residents of Ramsay Street start tiptoeing around David following his and Freya Wozniak (Phoebe Roberts)'s recent confession to the police.

    As part of his defense strategy for letting Gareth die, he is advised to highlight the post-traumatic stress brought on by the River Bend situation.

    According to his lawyers, this could excuse both David and Freya for Gareth's death ? but it is still not clear whether or not being acquitted will be enough to save their jobs and keep them out of prison.

    However, the stress and trauma of his predicament and the burden of the repercussions of his case's outcome overwhelm David to the point he becomes detached and distant to those trying to help him ? namely his lawyer.

    His disengaged attitude gives rise to his husband Aaron Brennan's (Matt Wilson) worry, who up until now has tried his best to keep things positive.

    Trying to make the situation better for the pair, he had previously arranged some work shifts for Freya at The Shed and even brought David to meet with hospital boss Clive Gibbons (Geoff Payne).

    His efforts, however, seem to fall flat when David confides to him that he plans to accept the full force of the law, leaving Aaron terrified.

    What will become of their family if David doesn't fight for himself? Will they need to go their separate ways?

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Wednesday, April 27 at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Wednesday, May 25 at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).

    Neighbours hints at David Tanaka catching out Corey in Harlow plot
    But will he realise the truth too late?

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...ing-out-corey/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours has revealed that David Tanaka will grow suspicious over Corey Smythe-Jones next week.

    Corey is currently manipulating David's niece Harlow Robinson as part of a masterplan to lure her into the Restoration Order cult.

    Harlow's mum Prue was part of the Order before she died, and the sinister organisation is now hell-bent on re-establishing the family link.

    In next week's episodes on Channel 5, Harlow isn't her usual self as she seems lethargic and out of sorts.

    This is because Corey has started secretly drugging Harlow, stepping up his evil attempts to control her behaviour.

    To make matters worse, Harlow seems to be increasingly taken in by Corey's manipulation, unaware that he's not the friend he claims to be.

    The main obstacle facing Corey is David, who starts to grow concerned about his influence over Harlow.

    When Corey senses that David is onto him, he manipulates Harlow further and slyly turns her against her uncle.

    With the help of the drugs that Corey is feeding her, Harlow grows even more alienated from her friends and family. However, David isn't prepared to let his suspicions go and keeps a close watch on the situation.

    As David starts to snoop, Chloe Brennan also gets involved by looking into the recent incident at Fashion Week.

    Harlow was recently humiliated when her fling with Ned Willis was publicly exposed during the Lassiters fashion show. A mystery "someone" arranged for incriminating pictures of Harlow and Ned to be projected onto her white dress during the event.

    When Corey starts to fear that the walls are closing in, he takes Harlow away for what he claims is a "weekend trip".

    In reality, Corey has sinister intentions for the holiday and Harlow may never see her family again.

    Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, May 16, Tuesday, May 17 and Wednesday, May 18 at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 15 on 10 Peach (Australia).

    Neighbours confirms jail storyline for David Tanaka
    He receives a tough punishment next week.

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...ka-jail-story/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours has confirmed that David Tanaka will be heading to jail.

    David receives the worrying news in next week's episodes, as he learns that he must be locked away ahead of his upcoming trial.

    David is currently facing charges of medical manslaughter after letting Gareth Bateman die in the show's River Bend episodes.

    Although David was initially resigned to the worst possible outcome, he later promised his husband Aaron that he'd fight the charges for the sake of their family.

    Next week, David enjoys himself on holiday with Aaron and feels happier than he has done in ages.

    Nicolette Stone joins the couple and baby Isla for their last night, and they all plan to take the boat out one last time before David needs to meet his bail check-in.

    With David having such a good time, he appears to have forgotten that his sentencing is only a few days away.

    Things go wrong when they get trapped at sea and David realises that he's in serious danger of missing his bail check-in.

    Fortunately, Nicolette manages to find emergency fuel and they get back to shore.

    David is initially let off with a warning from the police for being late, but events take a turn when he's taken in for questioning.

    Police sergeant Andrew Rodwell breaks the bad news that David has been labelled a flight risk after his mistake, so he must be held in prison on remand until the trial.

    David's father Paul Robinson is furious and makes threats towards Andrew, but there's nothing he can do to change the situation.

    How will David cope behind bars?

    Neighbours lines up terrible danger for David Tanaka in prison storyline
    He becomes a target at the jail.

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...tanaka-danger/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours has confirmed that David Tanaka will find himself in danger after being sent to prison.

    David is currently awaiting trial on a charge of medical manslaughter after letting Gareth Bateman die earlier this year.

    While it was originally agreed that David could have his freedom ahead of his court appearances, upcoming episodes see the situation change after an unfortunate mishap.

    David misses his scheduled bail check-in after getting stranded at sea while on holiday with his husband Aaron.

    The authorities later decide that David could be a flight risk, so they insist that he needs to be locked away ahead of the trial.

    In next week's episodes, a second update makes things even worse for David.

    David and his family have been expecting him to be held at a remand centre. Instead, David is told that he'll be kept at a maximum security prison until his sentencing.

    The Erinsborough doctor is left terrified in prison and he wonders how he'll cope as his father Paul Robinson urges him to adapt to survive.

    The worst happens when David meets a fellow inmate and receives a threat to his safety.

    Back on the Street, David's loved ones fight to get him out of the maximum security prison.

    Paul finds out that one of his old foes ? gang leader Holden Brice ? is at the same jail and pays him to protect David.

    The ruthless businessman hopes this plan will work out, but terrible news later reaches him over what has happened to David in prison.

    Although everyone is horrified by the latest news, despondency sets in for David's supporters as they realise that they can't help him.

    Just when they're all giving up hope, Gareth's grieving girlfriend Emma approaches Freya Wozniak with a tempting offer to secure David's safety in prison.

    Will Freya accept it?

    Tim Kano hints at Neighbours return
    Announcements around Erinsborough 3.0 are expected next week.

    https://tvtonight.com.au/2023/02/tim...rs-return.html

    Tim Kano is the latest actor to hint at a return to Neighbours.

    ?I am tightly lipped about it but it is really exciting,? Kano has told the Daily Telegraph. ?There will be a few announcements next week about what is happening, the new cast and the future of the show, it is just awesome.?

    Kano played Leo Tanaka brother of David (Takaya Honda) from 2016 until 2022.

    His comments follow Jodi Gordon this week telling Studio 10, ?There are conversations happening? and I say that with a big smile on my face.?

    Production is expected to resume in April and hit screens later this year on 10 / Prime Video.

    Neighbours star Tim Kano joins Pride flight
    Neighbours star Tim Kano joined a Pride flight to Sydney ahead of the world?s largest gay and lesbian celebrat

    https://www.news.com.au/travel/trave...db42049113f889


    Neighbours star Tim Kano has hinted at a return to the TV soap after it was given a broadcast lifeline.

    Fans were shocked and saddened when the long running drama was axed last year, only to be given a green light with a new broadcast partner some months later.

    The new season will air later this year, returning to Channel 10 locally with just a few of the cast members announced.

    Kano, who played Leo Tanaka on Neighbours for six years until the show was shelved in 2022, was careful with his words when asked if he would be back.

    ?I am tightly lipped about it but it is really exciting,? Kano said as he boarded a Virgin Australia Pride Flight to Sydney. ?There will be a few announcements next week about what is happening, the new cast and the future of the show, it is just awesome.?

    Kano was on the Melbourne Virgin Australia Pride Flight, heading to his second Mardi Gras. He took part in the parade a few years back with his Neighbours cast members.

    Of his own sexuality, Kano said: ?I?ve never really thought about it, I am a bit of everything I guess and I am definitely here to support Pride and the community.?

    Neighbours was known for pushing boundaries and during the marriage equality debate was at the fore of the issue, featuring a same sex couple marrying on screen.

    ?It was groundbreaking and on the fore of Australian television in terms of inclusion, which is why it is so great to a part of in terms of diversity and sexuality,? he said.

    ?It is iconic and it is really important that it is coming back.?.......................

    Neighbours' David Tanaka to issue a major ultimatum to Aaron Brennan
    What will this mean for their future?

    https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/nei...nan-ultimatum/

    Neighbours spoilers follow.

    Neighbours couple David Tanaka and Aaron Brennan find themselves at odds over their future in next week's episodes.

    The fan favourites recently returned to Erinsborough to share their role in the secrets being kept by Paul Robinson and Melanie Pearson, but they're now at a crossroads over their next move.

    David and Aaron headed back home alongside Nicolette Stone, who's under pressure to stick around permanently as her mum Jane Harris has missed her so much.

    Next week's episodes see Paul try to make life easier for all concerned after receiving an unexpected request from Nicolette.

    Paul visits Aaron and David, promising that he'd respectfully stay away from them if they decided to return to Erinsborough on a permanent basis.

    The ruthless businessman hopes this will be enough to pacify David, who's currently estranged from him following the drama involving Krista Sinclair.

    Despite this, David remains dubious and tells Aaron that he feels like he's a worse person when he's around Paul.

    David adds that time away from Erinsborough has made him happier than ever before, but it's clear that Aaron doesn't feel the same way.

    Aaron admits that he isn't happy and wants to live in Erinsborough again, which leaves the couple in a difficult situation.

    David takes matters into his own hands by presenting Aaron with an ultimatum, but what will this mean for their future?

    Takaya Honda and Matt Wilson reprised their roles as David and Aaron in last week's special flashback episodes. Meanwhile, Hannah Monson has taken over from Charlotte Chimes in the role of Nicolette.

    Speaking recently to Digital Spy about David and Aaron's Neighbours return, Takaya commented: "For both of us, it's always been about the story, so it's that question of, 'What's the story and how are we going to fit into this 'New Neighbours' and what is this 'New Neighbours?'

    We didn't know at that stage how many episodes were going to be on a week, how many episodes were going be on a year and it was like everyone was living in the dark.

    "It was really then about, 'Okay, let's just get some information first because we're still trying to process the whole thing and then we can figure out from there where we go'.

    "Ultimately, I think for both of us the story that Jason Herbison, our executive producer, pitched to us was something that was really intriguing to get us back onto the show and kick it off and the larger story that was happening on the show itself.

    "We could tell that there was something different happening on the show, so we wanted to be a part of that, really."

    Neighbours airs David's ultimatum on Tuesday, November 28.

    Neighbours releases new episodes from Mondays to Thursdays for free on Amazon Freevee in the UK and US. In Australia, the show airs from Mondays to Thursdays at 4pm on Channel 10, with a 6.30pm repeat screening on 10 Peach.
