Neighbours confirms deadly danger in poisoning mystery next week

Neighbours spoilers follow.

Neighbours has confirmed further details of a poisoning drama which threatens to ruin the launch of Eirini Rising next week.

The dramatic new storyline sees a mystery culprit target Leo Tanaka's vineyard with a plan which could ultimately risk the lives of the Eirini Rising launch party guests.

Early next week, JJ Varga-Murphy starts working at the vineyard after being given a chance to prove himself by Leo.

Leo is initially reluctant about having JJ on board at his business, aware that the teenager has been in trouble recently. However, Toadie Rebecchi and Terese Willis point out that rebellious teens can grow up to become responsible adults.

JJ's new job gets off to a bad start when Leo sets him some uninspiring tasks rather than anything interesting.

Back on Ramsay Street, Toadie's daughter Nell fails to convince her father to write her a note to excuse her for not completing any of her homework.

Not wanting to attend school and face trouble with her teachers, Nell plays truant and heads off to visit her friend JJ at the vineyard.

The duo get up to some mischief together, with Nell's presence almost being rumbled by Leo and a visiting Krista Sinclair.

It's Toadie who finally realises that something is amiss and he becomes frustrated that Nell always seems to do the wrong thing whenever JJ is around. He sets off to retrieve his daughter from the vineyard.

Suddenly, a masked figure appears at the vineyard and injects a mysterious substance into one of the bottles of wine that JJ is supposed to be looking after.

The bottles have been set aside for the following day's big launch of the Eirini Rising retirement complex. Is someone about to find themselves in serious jeopardy?

Neighbours airs these scenes on Monday, May 27.
