Love is never black and white.

Cupid's latest Ramsay Street victim is Philip Martin (Ian Rawlings) who has gone ga- ga for Ruth Wilkinson (Ailsa Piper).

But don't expect fiery passion, because even though this Aussie bloke has the hots for his Sheila, he's very much a slow burner.

Which, in the unreal world of Antipodean soap opera, is just what the script doctors ordered.

Phil's flustered, nervous approach to the situation - he had to be egged on by Helen Daniels (Anne Haddy) in the role of wise old matchmaker - means that any romance will take time to blossom.

Or, to put it another way, the makers of Neighbours can stretch out this relationship for several episodes before we have a clear idea if it's actually going anywhere.

It took forever for Phil the flutterer to indicate to Ruth that he fancies her and give her a kiss.

Well, it was more a peck, but at least it's a start.

Falling in love has had an interesting side effect on Phil. He's realised that he's sartorially challenged. So he splashed out on a new suit.

Interestingly though, he doesn't seem at all sure of the suit's colour.

When Ruth asked him to describe it, Phil reckoned that it was beige-ish, then a camel colour and finally settled for calling it buff.

The cause of all this, of course, might quite simply be that, in Phil's case, love is colour blind.
