At the party, Nicola King (Nicola Wheeler) wants the kids to help serve and obedient Jimmy King (Nick Miles) is sent to find them.

Meanwhile in the car, Angelica and Heath are flirting and they encourage Cathy to speed up. Jimmy still hasn’t tracked them down and Bob is alarmed that Wendy's car is missing. Before long, Bob has extracted the truth from April Windsor (Amelia Flangan) about the kids taking the car, and rushes to follow them to a party in Hotten.

"It's been their life since they were babies. It's always been their lives and I think it's quite extraordinary they are real twins and they are planning real twins. They are fabulous twins." He went on to reveal that Bob is "under a lot of pressure". Tony said: ""Bob isn't the best parent in the world. He's tried and he's under a lot of pressure.

"As a parent myself, it can be awkward giving your kids a lift or picking them up late at night. We did used to get called but we've passed that stage now. He can't believe they would do it. He's unsure if Cathy can drive or not but it's something Scott [Windsor] has taught he when she was away.

"He's concerned and because of the PMDD, Cathy has been acting erratically for quite a few months. Had he just given them a lift it might have planned out differently."
