Neighbours fans noticed a familiar face in tonight's episode (February 14) of the Australian soap.

As part of her return storyline, Jane Harris (Annie Jones) was seen breaking down over her new online lover Richard, who stood her up on a date.

A few days later, Jane confided in Dipi Rebecchi (Sharon Johal), who worked out that 'Richard' was most likely an online con artist, and not a real person.

Dipi urged Jane to accept the possibility that she has been scammed after sending money to Richard, but she stubbornly refused to believe it.

Determined to prove Richard is a catfish, Dipi later found his profile picture on the internet, realising that it was a stock photo.

However, the guy in the stock photo was Jason Herbison, the executive producer of Neighbours – a fun little Easter Egg for the fans, which they were keen to point out.

Elsewhere, former Neighbours star Margot Robbie recently revealed that the soap's bosses refused to kill off her character Donna Freedman when she asked to leave.

Speaking on the YouTube show Hot Ones, she said: "They said no because, you know, 'If things don't work out in America, we want you to be able to come back and play the role again'. So, my character also moved to America, incidentally."

Neighbours airs at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
