Mark has told Elly he wants a marriage annulment. But everything could change when he discovers his wife's shock secret...

Mark Brennan has always wanted to be a dad. Remember when he and then girlfriend Steph Scully asked neighbour Sonya Rebecchi to be their surrogate? But he's not expecting to find out he's a dad under such dramatic circumstances...

With Mark's marriage to Elly Conway already on the rocks over her shock wedding day confession she cheated on him with his sister Chloe, Mark makes it clear to his mum Fay that he can never take back a woman he can't trust.

But will Mark stay true to his word after Elly drops the shock bombshell she is pregnant! Could a baby reunite the troubled couple?

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.
