After Bailey overheard Karen Taylor and her dad Mitch Baker talking about their money worries, Bailey lied about the expensive space camp that she had won a place on.

She told her dad that winners of the competition had their expenses paid, relieving him of the pressure to come up with the cash.

However, she also lied that he didn't have to come to the awards presentation because she was going with her school teacher Isaac.

Karen and Mich have no idea that Bailey has been fibbing to them and they get a shock the following morning.

As Karen gets all dressed up in a bid to look the part of a job interview, she has got high hopes that luck is on her side this time.

However, when Mitch goes to wake his daughter for school he gets the shock of a lifetime. What will he find?

Honey isn't happy 

Elsewhere, Tiff and Keegan are nervous ahead of their meeting with a bank manager and Honey is on the warpath.
