At the opening Hawksford Outdoor Pursuits Centre, Marlon pulls up in the food van and is getting prepared for the day ahead when Rhona (Zoe Henry) arrives with their son Leo.

With the plan to move to France with boyfriend Graham (Andrew Scarborough) and Leo secretly back on, Rhona feels wracked with guilt about taking Marlon's son from him, and is keen for them to spend some time together while they still can.

Later, Rhona's guilt intensifies and pushes her to want to come clean but as she and Marlon meet at Tall Trees to talk, Marlon gets the wrong idea and tries to kiss his ex!

Rhona recoils and in the same breath reveals the shocking truth that the move to France with Graham and Leo is back on.
