Mas­tec­tomy dra­mas aside, Peggy had an­other bat­tle on her hands thanks to Frank’s no­to­ri­ously rov­ing eye. Hav­ing al­ready been mar­ried twice be­fore, Frank still had feel­ings for sec­ond wife Pat Wicks (Pam St Cle­ment) but that didn’t stop him from mar­ry­ing a be­sot­ted Peggy in April 1999. Through­out the mar­riage, Frank in­sti­gated a pas­sion­ate af­fair with Pat, fi­nally de­cid­ing to desert Peggy to flee town with her.

Never one to be over­looked or un­der­es­ti­mated, Peggy found the sick­en­ing “Dear Jane” let­ter that Frank left for her and took re­venge by read­ing the mis­sive to the crowded pub in front of the shame-faced lovers. Then, with a vi­cious slap to Frank and Pat’s faces, she threw them out and di­vorced Frank, send­ing him scur­ry­ing away from Wal­ford. The sor­did af­fair was enough to spark a long-time, bit­ter ri­valry be­tween Peggy and Pat, al­though in later years, they put aside their an­i­mos­ity and formed a strong but com­bat­ive friend­ship.
