Chrissie’s gut­ted when a DNA test proves Lawrence is Rebecca’s fa­ther

ebecca White is fast be­com­ing the sis­ter from hell. She’s had an af­fair with Chrissie’s ex-hus­band Robert and takes de­light in rub­bing her sib­ling’s nose in it when she finds out that she’s Lawrence’s bi­o­log­i­cal daugh­ter.

Know­ing that Chrissie won’t re­act well if she finds out about the af­fair, Rebecca urges nephew Lach­lan to keep it a se­cret. Mean­while, she probes Chrissie, hop­ing that she’ll con­fess that Lawrence isn’t her real dad.

‘Robert has told Rebecca this al­ready,’ says Emily Head, who plays her. ‘But she’s hurt that Chrissie hasn’t re­vealed it her­self.’

When Chrissie fails to tell Rebecca the truth, Rebecca tears up the birth­day card Chrissie gave her. Lach­lan finds it in pieces and, realising that Aun­tie Rebecca isn’t as gen­uine as she seems, tells his

Rmum about her fling with Robert. The sis­ters have an almighty cat­fight in The Wool­pack and Rebecca spits that they aren’t re­ally sis­ters, leav­ing Chrissie fu­ri­ous that her se­cret is out – and pan­ick­ing about her fu­ture.

Rebecca has her eye on Lawrence’s will, too, and promptly ar­ranges a DNA test. Lawrence in­ter­cepts the re­sults, but his exlover Ron­nie per­suades him it’s time to be hon­est. Rebecca then opens the let­ter and de­clares that Lawrence is her real dad.

Adds Emily: ‘Rebecca is de­lighted and knows where she stands in the fam­ily.

‘She has a prob­lem with the fact that the will was changed when Lawrence was in­jured, and wants to stake her claim.’

Chrissie, who’d long as­sumed he was her fa­ther, too, is con­sumed with jeal­ousy and, to add in­sult to in­jury, Rebecca an­nounces that she wants to work for the fam­ily busi­ness. Lawrence makes her co­man­ager and, for Chrissie, it’s a dec­la­ra­tion of war. Is Rebecca a match for her big sis?
