At the end of the visit, Marlon reassured the little girl that he hadn’t given up.

As April and Mandy left the prison, Mandy told the schoolgirl how brave she had been.

But April broke down saying: “I was just pretending. It’s horrible in here and he’s stuck here.”

However Mandy tried her best to assure April that they would get Marlon out eventually.

As the two both started crying, viewers were left heartbroken for April.

Marlon has been arrested and charged with the murder of Graham Foster.

On the day Graham died, Marlon had a go at Graham for assuming he had taken April and his son Leo without asking permission.

Already on bad terms with Graham, Marlon was even more furious when he found out his ex-girlfriend Rhona, who is Leo’s mum, planned on moving to France with their son and Graham, who she was in a relationship with.

Before they left for their new life, Marlon arranged to meet Graham in the woods in order to sort things out between them, but Graham never made it to their meeting.

Graham was murdered by Rhona’s rapist ex-husband Pierce, who had recently been released from prison.

April is breaking my heart.

Marlon was soon arrested for Graham’s murder and charged when the murder weapon was found in his home.
