Neighbours confirms Tess Carmichael return and new arrival

Neighbours spoilers follow.

Neighbours fans will see Tess Carmichael make a return to Erinsborough later this month.

Anica Calida has reprised her role as Tess, who was first seen last year in the early weeks of the new season.

Tess was initially introduced in October as the trusted right-hand woman of rich business tycoon Conrad Sinclair.

She travelled to Erinsborough from the US to check on Conrad's daughter Reece, who was staying at Lassiters while on a secret mission to find her missing sister Krista.

Tess was unimpressed by Reece's lack of progress and the revelation that she was having a fling with Byron Stone.

In upcoming scenes, it could be Krista's turn to face pressure from Tess as they meet for a catch-up.

New spoiler pictures show Krista and Tess spending time together outside the hotel, but is Tess being totally honest about her reasons for being back in town?
