Sheila Canning (played by Colette Mann) has become one of Neighbours’ most beloved residents since arriving on Ramsay Street back in 2012. Since then, more and more members of her family have joined her in Erinsborough including children Gary Canning (Damien Richardson) and Naomi Canning (Morgana O’Reilly). The bar manager’s grandson Kyle Canning (Chris Milligan) was already established when she was introduced eight years ago, but since then he has made an exit and then came back some years later to be with his clan. However, viewers of the Channel 5 soap know the grandmother has spoken about other extensions of her family in her past, but could she be set to discover she has a sister a lot closer to home?
Scenes set to air in the UK in the coming days will see Levi Canning (Richie Morris) arrive to join his grandmother in Erinsborough.
The newcomer is the son of Sheila’s third and yet to be introduced child Frank Canning Jnr, who has been an absent presence within the family set-up.
This is sure to cause some drama as the young police officer will be moving in with his father’s mother and cousin Kyle.
However, this arrival could provide bosses to explore the matriarch’s own background a little further, especially following the death of Gary earlier this year.
As she does some digging into her family history, could the beloved character stable across her birth records and realise she is a twin?

In one of the unlikeliest storyline twists the soap has ever seen, Sheila might find out she is related to reformed villain, Heather Schilling (Kerry Armstrong).
The latter is currently serving time behind bars after helping her daughter Andrea Somers (Madeleine West) with her plans to destroy the Rebecchi family.
After she was apprehended by the authorities last year, it was revealed she had a troubled past as she had given birth to twins but had no recollection of her ordeal.
This was because the circumstances behind the birth were very traumatising and it was discovered she was the long-lost mother of Dee Bliss (also Madeleine West), the identical twin to Andrea.
“Although it was only just Gary and [Sheila] for a long time, I think they will eventually bring somebody else in,” she continued.
“I don’t know when that will be and who that will be,” the soap star continued and although the could have been an indication towards Levi’s arrival, there could be more to this than meets the eye.
With Colette mentioning she doesn’t know when another member of the clan will be introduced, could this suggest there is a secret Canning already in Erinsborough?
Could she and Heather have been separated at birth, much like how Andrea and Dee were all those years ago?
Levi will be making his first impression on UK screens very soon and he will cross paths with Heather as they try to track down mission Andrea who escapes from prison.
Unknowingly, he could be working with his great-auntie, who has no idea she could be related to another family on Ramsay Street.
Whatever happens, it seems the newcomer could be causing a stir as actor Richie told RadioTimes.com: “Levi is incredibly passionate for his job, but it doesn’t mean he can’t end up in tricky situations.
“He’s very passionate for his job and his family,” so could the two cross over and he becomes the one to expose the dark family secret?
Neighbours airs weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5.
