Meanwhile, a delighted Jasmine Delaney (Sam Frost) has been left to look after her baby stepdaughter, Grace while Grace's mum, Tori is busy with the hospital emergency involving John.

However, Tori's brother, Justin (James Stewart) still isn't happy that she's allowing emotionally troubled Jasmine to get so attached to Grace.
