Long-running Australian soap Neighbours will celebrate its 6,000th episode with a whodunnit storyline.

The landmark episode - to be shown on Five in October - will revolve around an attempt on the life of villainous Paul Robinson, played by Stefan Dennis.

Viewers will be left to guess the culprit out of a number of possible suspects in a plot strand similar to the "Who shot JR?" mystery on Dallas.

Neighbours moved to Five in 2008 after more than 20 years on BBC One.

Dennis appeared in Neighbours' first episode in 1985 and remained with the show until 1993.

He returned to the programme in 2004 following appearances on such UK TV shows as Casualty, The Bill and River City.

Five has called the attempted murder plot "one of the show's most dramatic storylines to date".

Viewers in Australia will see the soap's 6,000th episode later this month.
