Things get worse for Mel later in the week when she is served an eviction notice from Jack. Finding out new arrival Gray Atkins is a solicitor, Mel asks him for advice and he gives her food for thought.

At Jack's, Mel opens up about Hunter and begs him to let her keep the house. Will he fall for her sob story?

Fans know Hunter killed new stepfather Ray to save his mother from being murdered, but it soon became apparent he enjoyed it more than he was letting on.

Mel married Ray knowing he had two other wives. She, along with his wives Nicola and Maddie set him up and after he married Mel, he was arrested for bigamy.
