Neighbours previews romantic twist for Dex after JJ's sacrifice

Neighbours spoilers follow.

Neighbours has confirmed a new twist in the love triangle between brothers Dex and JJ Varga-Murphy and Nell Rebecchi, as JJ makes a big sacrifice.

With teens Nell and JJ both harbouring a secret crush on one another, neither of them has realised that Dex has been hiding his own romantic feelings for Nell.

In scenes that will air on Thursday, June 13 and Monday, June 17, Terese Willis finds herself in an awkward position when stepdaughter Nell asks her for advice on how to move beyond the friend zone with JJ.

Knowing that Nell's dad Toadie wouldn't approve of the situation, Terese tries to keep her advice vague and suggests to Nell that there's no harm in being honest about her feelings.

Meanwhile, JJ is seeking out Andrew Rodwell to get some romantic advice of his own, with Andrew suggesting that JJ should ask Nell out on a casual date to try to find out if she'd be interested in being more than friends.

Following his uncle's advice, JJ invites Nell to have lunch together and, when she agrees, he casually says "it's a date".

Later on, JJ accidentally throws out the anime drawings that Nell gave to Dex and is surprised by how panicked and angry his brother becomes when he finds the drawings crumpled up in the bin.

Suddenly, the penny drops for JJ - Dex also has a crush on Nell.

Dex admits that he thinks Nell could feel the same way, as she has visited him every day that he's been in hospital. JJ is crestfallen, as he knows that the real reason Nell has visited so often is because she wanted to spend more time with JJ.

As Dex grills JJ on whether he's heard Nell mention anyone else, JJ truthfully confirms that he hasn't - but he's secretly dismayed to find out how his brother really feels.

When JJ and Nell meet for their lunch date, Nell bravely reveals her true feelings as she references the 'date' that he asked her on, confirming that she likes him too.

Conflicted JJ feels forced to bury his own feelings for his brother's sake, as he claims that he only sees Nell as a best mate and that he doesn't want to ruin their friendship by trying to turn it into something more.

Broken-hearted Nell seeks out Terese to tell her everything, while guilty JJ seeks advice from Haz Devkar on how to navigate this unwanted love triangle. Haz suggests an easy and mature solution to JJ - he should tell Dex the truth about his and Nell's feelings for each other.

JJ takes his advice on board, but when he attempts to come clean to Dex, he can't get the words out. Instead, he commits himself to helping Dex woo Nell, as he gives him the manga drawing book that he'd planned on presenting to Nell himself.

Determined to put his brother first, devastated JJ watches on as Dex gives the gift to Nell and earns a hug and a maybe-date.

Will Dex discover the truth about JJ and Nell's feelings for each other?
