To escape the mayhem, Cathy ended up going on her honeymoon with her sister Cat (Lauren Socha) and the pair getting to know each other better.

The two sisters will develop their relationship as they try to navigate their blended family. 

Cathy and Cat will have very different reactions to discovering they have a brother with hilarity to ensue.

“Callum has to get his head around the fact that he’s been living a lie and that his ‘perfect’ family is not all that it seems.
