Predatory Gordon Livesy (Gary Mavers) is to play the sick card this week when he appears in court this week before horrified son Aaron (Danny Miller).
RadioTimes.com readers can get a sneak peek of the upcoming scenes that will find Aaron, Robert (Ryan Hawley) and Chas (Lucy Pargeter) left reeling as Gordon pretends to be seriously ill for the court’s benefit.
