Lonely Leo befriends mystery newcomer Mandy this week. Mandy, however, isn’t a real pupil, but a vulnerable and disturbed young lady who has been using the school’s community hotline.

Things heat up when Mandy head butts Justin for giving his younger brother Leo a hard time. They then bunk off school for the day together.

With Leo and Mandy nowhere to be found, alarm bells ring when Audrey remembers she knows Mandy from her time at Havelock High where the youngster was responsible for endangering another pupil. When Mandy turns violent, Leo manages to talk her down and get away safely, to the relief of Allie and Vaughan, who realises they’ve been neglecting him.

Elsewhere, Justin’s not happy when he finds out his girlfriend Tiffany gone to stay with a family friend to get away from him!

Hector puts pressure on Sue to tell Simon about their affair. When she refuses he decides to do it himself. Desperate to beat Hector to the chase Sue confesses all to Simon. He sees red and attacks Hector at with a baseball bat!

After a heart to heart, Christine recommends Simon leaves for his new job in Wales and don’t look back. Sue is left heartbroken when Simon tells her he wants a divorce…
