And what explanation does David end up getting?
David feels guilty for leaving Kylie while she’s in the early stages of her pregnancy and Kylie just goes along with that. So she doesn’t have to worm her way out of it at all. He’s not that harsh with her, which was quite difficult to film. She manages to get out of it because David puts the blame on himself.
And how does Gail end up finding out that Nick might be the father of Kylie’s baby?
Gail’s been creating tension whenever David’s in the room because she doesn’t want to witness Kylie playing happy families. In the end, it’s Nick who eventually breaks and he tells Gail that it was him who got involved with Kylie. She’s really angry but she’s shocked as well. She tells Nick that she doesn’t want to even look at him and that he’s not to call her ‘mum’.
And does this change Gail’s mind about telling David?
At this point it’s more complicated because she’s torn between her two sons. She wouldn’t think twice if it was just Kylie, but it’s always been noted that Nick is her blue-eyed boy. So she feels really torn.
Of course, Kylie is also dealing with the fact that she has to have surgery for a ruptured spleen. How scared is she about that?
She’s had this niggling pain since she woke up in hospital and obviously she’s really worried. She’s really scared because she knows this is all her fault, but it just goes from bad to worse when she then gets really poorly and has to have surgery.
How seriously do you think she considers confessing the whole truth to David?
I don’t think she can actually see herself uttering those words to David as I think that would just be too awful for her. But there are a few more twists and turns to come where it does nearly come out!
Does Kylie think that there is a chance that David could forgive her if he found out?
At first, she did think that maybe they could have found a way through it, but she doesn’t think it’s possible now that Gail knows the truth about Nick. If it was just a random guy she’d slept with then it might have been different. But I think she knows that, on this occasion, David would not forgive her.
What sort of reaction have you been getting from the public about Kylie and Nick’s one-night stand and all the complications that have followed?
The audience seems to be really excited about where the story is going to end up, especially as it wasn’t the typical cliché of Kylie and Nick having a love affair - it was just two people who had one night together and whose situation has gone from bad to worse!I feel really privileged to be a part of it.
Who would you like the father to be?
That’s tough! I think it’s 50-50. I absolutely love working with Jack and I really don’t want that relationship to end, but at the same time Nick brings out a different side to Kylie. People have said to me that she’s a girl when she’s with David and a woman when she’s with Nick. And I think that’s a great way of putting it. There are massive benefits to each of them!
