The passion ignites out of the scandal that grips the Morgan family when Brody is caught canoodling in a caravan with flame-haired mistress Simone by horrified wife Ziggy.

Shamefully confessing he’s been having an affair behind her back, Brody admits to Zig their marriage is over. But if that wasn’t enough, Ziggy is even more upset to learn brother-in-law Justin already knew about the infidelity and kept his sibling’s saucy secret.

The Astonis and the rest of the Morgan clan turn on Justin labelling him a traitor, and even when he pleads he tried to make Brody come clean earlier it falls on deaf ears.
