Neighbours spoilers: Pierce Greyson heartbroken as Chloe Brennan reveals 'tragic secret'

Pierce (played by Tim Robards) and his wife Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) have started to look to the future on Neighbours after tying-the-knot earlier this year. With the quirky Brennan sister living with Huntington’s Disease, she wants to make every moment count with her family and friends, although she knows to have children of her own could come at a cost. However, in upcoming scenes on the Channel 5 soap, she will discover she is pregnant but hides the secret from her husband at first, knowing it will only lead to heartbreak.

In recent weeks, the pair have tried their hand at becoming foster parents, warning to explore the avenue of having a child by alternative means.

Scenes yet to air in the UK until next week will see Chloe discover she has conceived naturally, although she and her husband weren’t actively trying to get pregnant.

This is because the baby has a fifty percent chance of inserting the Huntington’s gene from their mother, a condition which symptoms only worsen over time.

Knowing full well she own illness could come on at any time, the expectant mother has an accidental memory slip and Pierce’s wife soon thinks this is a sign of what’s to come.

Wanting to know whether her child will suffer the same fate, the Brennan sister orders a test to be carried out but doesn’t tell her husband.

Chloe wants to tell her other half but decides she will wait until she gets the results of the Huntington’s result.

It’s not long before Pierce’s rival and business partner Paul Robinson (Stefan Dennis) learns of the expectant mother’s news.

As the two men are constantly trying to be the one on top, the Brennan sister knows she has to tell her husband everything.

Unable to stay quiet for long, the hotel events manager confides in Pierce about her discovery and how they approach the pregnancy going forward.

Pierce has made it no secret over his desire to have another child, although he already has a teenage son and daughter.

Hendrix Greyson’s (Benny Turland) mother Lisa Rowsthorn (Jane Allsop) tried to convince her ex-husband to give her another baby when she turned up on Ramsay Street in January.

Although he and Chloe eventually agreed to her request, the mother-of-two discovered she had fallen pregnant with her parent’s child.

This put the businessman back at square one, so could this be his final chance of giving fatherhood another chance?

Speaking with RadioTimes.com about her character’s storyline, Chloe actress April teased more about the decision at hand.

The soap star said: “It’s instant fear and terror. Because for Chloe with her Huntingdon’s, she’s not really advised to conceive children naturally.”

“Because Chloe’s own life will be significantly shortened and the disease will start kicking in when she’s like late 40’s or early ’50s. And also, Chloe is not even sure if she wants children or not.

“She knows Pierce will be really excited and, well there’s just lots of big decisions that need to be made. And it’s all very unexpected.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5.
