The insane Neighbours fan theory that's taking over the Internet.

In case you missed it, Neighbours fans are in the process of losing their collective sh*t.

Dee Bliss, played by Madeleine West, died 13 years ago in one of the most talked about scenes in the series history.

Following her wedding to Toadie Rebecchi, Dee was driven off a cliff and her body was never recovered.

But now she’s back.


Listen to The Binge hosts Laura Brodnik and Tiffany Dunk explain what was so shocking about Dee’s return. And why we don’t trust her.

You see, Neighbours might just have the most dedicated legion of fans in existence, and they’ve been busy posting to the Mamamia Facebook page, and the Neighbours fan page, outlining their unbeatable theories.

For starters, that’s not Dee.

“You could tell by the way she looked at herself in the mirror at the end of the episode,” said one commenter.

“My opinion is that Dee is a fake. I think she has been in the house recently looking for photos hence why she doesn’t remember everyone. This also explains why Toadie could smell her perfume. Could be Dees sister…” said another.

Another clue is that when Dee returned she greeted her then-husband “Hi Toadie”, despite the fact she never called him that in the past. She always referred to him as ‘Jared’.


This then begs the question; If that’s not Dee, then… who is it?

Some think it might be Emily, a woman who apparently saved Dee after her accident.

One commenter theorised “A good twist to this story would be that Dee is not really Dee… She is Emily who assumed the identity of Dee (plastic surgery and all that)… She learned all about Dee when she rescued her but Dee died in her care… Willow is Emily’s daughter and she is passing her off as Dee’s daughter with Toadie… Toadie will be devastated when he finds out the truth about ‘Dee’s’ identity…”


Many others agree, adding ” It’s probably that woman she says found her. Bit of a nutter.”

Listen to the newest episode of The Binge , because there’s a whole lot more happening in TV right now. 

In an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, Madeline West said things would get very dark, and indeed it feels like we’re awaiting a twist.

But not everyone is convinced Dee is actually Emily. Many believe it's Dee's sister, Celia.

"My theory is that it's actually Dee's sister and she had plastic surgery to look like Dee so she can get revenge on Toadie because she blames him for Dee's death," one commenter hypothesised.

"Does anyone else think it's really the sister who she said disappeared? She would know everyone and would know what the ring looked like etc," asked another.

Fans are even speculating about the motive, arguing "Dee's sis with surgery because she was always envious of her life with a partner and friends who loved her."

Could it be that 'Emily' or Celia underwent a whole heap of cosmetic surgery to just look like the real Dee? Either way, it's a bloody good disguise...
