Roxy was publicly humiliated after Mark's drunken outburst at The 82 on Neighbours. But will she fall for his charms again when he apologises?
Roxy Willis (played by Zima Anderson) returns home heartbroken and humiliated after Mark Brennan's (Scott McGregor) drunken outburst on Neighbours.
Roxy tearfully tells housemate Harlow Robinson (Jemma Donovan) how she tried to please boyfriend Mark by toning down her wild child ways and dressing in a more conservative (and boring!) way.
However, her plan backfired when an embarassed Mark made it clear he doesn't want to be in a serious relationship with someone like Roxy. She's been good for sexy hook-ups... but that's all!
Angered by Mark's cruel treatment of Roxy, Harlow tries to convince Roxy that Mark is not the man for her. There's someone else out there who will love and respect her for who she really is.
But loved-up Roxy is still unsure. So in the sober light of day, when Mark calls at Number 22 with flowers and a grovelling apology about his bad behaviour, will Roxy fall for his charms all over again?
And Roxy's not the only one feeling down-in-the-dumps. Sheila Canning (Colette Mann) is in the bad books with her son Gary (Damien Richardson) after causing a scene at the wine tasting event at The 82, when she confronted her ex, Clive Gibbons's (Geoff Paine) new ladyfriend Beverly Robinson (Shaunna O'Grady) and drenched her in red wine!
But mostly, Sheila feels crushed she has loved and lost, and that Clive has moved on so quickly. Can Roxy and Harlow boost her spirits?
Elsewhere in Erinsborough, Pierce Greyson (Tim Robards) is determined to get his troublesome teenage son Hendrix (Benny Turland) back on track.
Pierce turns to Susan Kennedy (Jackie Woodburne), headmistress at Erinsborough High School, for advice since Hendrix has been booted out of his private boarding school for bad behaviour.
Could there be a place for Hendrix at Erinsborough High School? And how will Hendrix react to the news of attending a non-elite school?
Neighbours continues weekdays at 1:45pm and 5:30pm on Channel 5
