Neighbours revealed a few weeks ago that they would feature their first gay relationship on Ramsay St. but the producers of the show have revealed that fans won't be seeing any intimacy between the same-sex pair.

Following the news that Neighbours will feature its first gay couple however the show’s executive producer Susan Bower has since revealed that viewers will not see any intimacy between the two men as they have to keep to guidelines surround their 6.30pm time slot and its G-rating.

This September fans of the hit Australian soap, set in fictional Erinsborough, will see already-out gay teen Chris, played by James Mason, begin a relationship with new character Aiden who is played by Bob Morely.

Speaking to Digital Spy about the guidelines surrounding the portrayal of the relationship, Susan Bower said: “It is obvious that at 6.30pm a gay romance is a sensitive issue and for some reason on television it is alright for girls to kiss and experiment with their sexuality but it's not alright for boys. That is something we are aware of, as annoying or disappointing as it is.

“We will treat the romance within the character. Chris is a naturally shy person – he is not a person who either flaunts his sexuality or his heart. So it will be done according to that character. And it may not be a full-on relationship. The character that Bob is playing is older and further down the track with his relationship testing, so it will be a relationship story rather than a gay male romance."
