The wedding planner - played by Gaynor Faye - and her silver fox fiance (Michael Praed) will find themselves caught up in a horrific smash in a few weeks' time after the plush sports car the brunette beauty has just bought turns out to be "dodgy and highly unsafe" but, with their lives hanging in the balance, bosses are remaining tight lipped on whether they both make it out alive.

The crash comes just as the couple agree to make a go of their relationship after Megan decides it's Frank she wants following her affair with Graham Foster (Andrew Scarborough) earlier this year.

In a bid to buy back his love, Megan splashes out on a nifty new vehicle for her man, but disaster will strike when it malfunctions during their test drive - resulting in the very serious accident.

Details on the crash are being kept under wraps for now so it's not known if anyone else from the village will be involved or whether it's just Megan and Frank who bear the brunt of the dodgy motor.

It's just one of many explosive scenes bosses have come up with over the last two years as just a few months ago psycho villain Lachlan White (Thomas Atkinson) killed off his mother and his grandfather after he lost his temper, grabbed the wheel of the car and ploughed into a lorry.

He then went on to murder his annoying friend Gerry Roberts - who he had told about the car crash - by slamming a brick across his head after the joker teased him about exposing his big secret.

Lachlan now looks set to kill his aunt Rebecca White (Emily Head) - who has a serious brain injury and suffers with memory loss - in a bid to stop her from remembering that he killed his family.
