WHO is the MYSTERY woman waiting for Mal back at his hotel room?
It's the day of Toadie Rebecchi (Ryan Maloney) and Melanie Pearson's (Lucinda Cowden) engagement party at Number 30.
But Melanie is still reeling from Harold Bishop's (Ian Smith) harsh words and does her best to avoid him.
However, Melanie is about to be put to the test again when Toadie's infamous mum, Angie (Lesley Baker) arrives for the party.
It quickly becomes clear that Harold isn't the only person who disapproves of Melanie...
