Neighbours spoilers follow.

Neighbours star Stefan Dennis has spoken to Digital Spy about Paul Robinson and Terese Willis growing closer again after this week's storm disaster.

A huge new storyline on the show sees terrible weather hit Erinsborough on the day of Kyle Canning and Roxy Willis's wedding.

When the guests take shelter at the Flamingo Bar, it proves to be an awful decision as they're not safe inside.

The fallout sees Paul rushed to hospital in a critical condition, while Terese (Rebekah Elmaloglou) is forced to consider whether she still has feelings for her estranged husband.

Teasing the aftermath, Stefan told Digital Spy: "Terese does rush to be with Paul. Even though she split up with him, Terese still loves Paul and that's the problem. Paul is head over heels in love with Terese. Terese is angry over Paul's antics, but she does deeply, deeply love him.

"As with anyone when you love them and they're in critical danger, you rush to their side."

He continued: "Terese comes to terms with her dalliance with Glen and says: 'Look, my husband's ill, I've got to be with him'. She stays by Paul's side. Then when Paul is released from hospital, he's still very ill and needs nursing. So Terese decides to move into the penthouse with Paul, much to his amazement and joy.

"As an actor, both Bek and I really love filming the break-up stuff. It's good fun to play the drama. But as characters, I think the world wants Terese and Paul to get back together.

"I would like to see that as well, because they're so suited to each other but also so different. That's why they're always so feisty. They're just two very, very strong characters who clash."

The storm plays out in Tuesday's episode on Channel 5, while Wednesday's edition features a rare Neighbours time jump as the action moves seven days into the future.

Stefan explained: "You have the night of the storm and the catastrophe that is caused by that. Then in the next episode, it cuts to seven days later and everyone is picking up the pieces. That's where the twists and turns start.

"The building fell on Paul and he ends up having a ruptured liver. He undergoes major surgery and he's not a well boy at all.

"I got the script and thought I was going to have a week of lying in bed asleep! I thought I'd be able to take it easy with no lines – that's an actor's dream, your character being in hospital for a week. Then they did a time jump!"

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 6pm on Channel 5 (UK) and Mondays to Thursdays at 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
