Maxine Minniver (Nikki Sanderson) is delighted that she’s got exactly what she wants and is now engaged to Damon Kinsella (Jacob Roberts). She can’t wait to celebrate their happy news with a party.
However, unbeknownst to Damon, needy Maxine has been faking a serious illness in order to manipulate him into popping the question. Damon has felt pressured into protecting and supporting his girlfriend, completely unaware that she’s been duping him all along.
With the party over, Maxine’s attention-seeking escalates and she deliberately starts a row with Damon that leads to him leaving the flat confused.
Later on Maxine makes up a story of Damon leaving her and rings into ITV show This Morning where she speaks to reporter and presenter Alison Hammond live on air in a phone-in, outlining her illness and heartbreak! Has Maxine taken things way too far and what is she playing at?
