Aaron and Liv’s dad Gordon sexually abused Aaron when he was a child.

Liv didn’t believe Aaron at first, however she soon realised Gordon was lying about being innocent.

Gordon went to prison and eventually took his own life.

Liv moved in with Aaron when Sandra made the decision to move to Ireland.
