However Joel has been wrestling with his conscience and has so far refused to give up his vows to the priesthood for a committed relationship with Goldie.

After trying to get his hands on her medical files, James has already worked out that Maxine has been faking her terminal illness all this time. Maxine has claimed that she has just weeks to live ahead of Damon’s trial but now James is onto her.
The sneaky lawyer recently did some secret snooping while junior doctor Mitchell Deveraux (Imran Adams) was in possession of Maxine’s records but where are the important files now?
Following a night out with Scott Drinkwell (Ross Adams) Mitchell’s bag has got accidentally mixed up with Scott’s which means Scott now has Maxine’s confidential records. Is he about to discover that Maxine has been duping everyone, including her very own husband Damon, for months?
With Damon’s trial for fraud about to start, will Scott race to the court and tell Damon the terrible truth about Maxine’s deception? Or is it too late and will Damon find himself being sentenced?
