Toyah Tells The Truth

Georgia Taylor speaks about THAT secret and how Peter discovers the truth about baby Susie...

There’s been moments where Toyah is worried that Eva may change her mind about the pact, how anxious is she that Eva will want Susie back?

Toyah is always on the verge of feeling like that is going to happen, like she is walking a tightrope and at any moment she could just fall off. Susie is quite literally a piece of Aidan and Toyah knows that Eva has to look in to that child’s eyes knowing that it is the last remaining piece of the man that she loved.

But in the meantime, Toyah and Peter have both bonded with Susie.

Toyah absolutely feels as though Susie is her daughter and she feels very much like the mother she has always wanted to be but the fact they are all living on top of each other is really exacerbating the tension of the situation.

So living with the lie hasn’t become easier for Toyah now that she has Susie?

No, the only thing that feels easy is how natural it feels for her to be a mum because that is something that she has wanted for so long.

What happens when Eva tells Peter, Toyah and Leanne how she caught Simon and his mate smoking over the pram?

Eva goes ballistic because this is her child and she still feels protective so Eva lays in to Peter about it but Peter goes on the defensive for Simon, so Eva and Peter are at loggerheads. There is a genuine moment of tension where Toyah doesn’t know whether Eva is going to reveal the secret. She manages to dissipate the drama but it’s the fact that they have come so close and for a short time Peter and Eva aren’t talking to each other and that is terrifying to Toyah because the drama is bubbling away.

Richard Hawley On Johnny's Grief

Richard Hawley discusses Johnny's state of mind ahead of Aidan's funeral.

How would you describe Johnny and Jenny’s relationship at the moment?

This is the story of men’s difficulty in expressing feelings and in this case, Johnny is finding difficulty with grieving and of course he is deeply traumatised. He’s acting out the silence that Aidan lived in.

Does Johnny realise that he is pushing Jenny away?

Johnny is blinded to everything, he is keeping other people out, not deliberately but he can’t stop it. This is the danger of the difficulty of grieving. It’s an instinctive response to protect his own pain and vulnerability and it’s a classic case of you lash out at the ones closest to you.

What happens when Johnny tells Jenny she is not welcome at the Chapel of Rest?

The trigger for banning Jenny is because she spills a coffee on Aidan’s suit which is almost like desecrating his son. He sees innocent mistakes as desecration because all of his feelings are elevated, you just can’t reach him.
