“Just take my hand, Dad! Please don’t do this!”

Inside Soap - - THE BIG INTERVIEW -

Our Christ­mas cracker

Max was sui­ci­dal after his dirty deal­ings with Wey­land & Co and the truth about his role in the fire that killed Steven Beale were re­vealed. His fam­ily had dis­owned him, while Stacey – who’d been close to run­ning away with him – re­jected Max too.

Fes­tive fire­works

Con­vinced that he had noth­ing left to live for, Max took to the roof of the Vic and pre­pared to jump – mir­ror­ing what hap­pened to his son, Bradley. Daugh­ters Lau­ren and Abi spot­ted him, rushed to the roof and begged him to get down. But after they climbed to the edge to take his hand, Lau­ren slipped, and the sis­ters top­pled off!

Not just for Christ­mas

Lau­ren made a full re­cov­ery, but Abi was left brain­stem- dead by the ac­ci­dent. The fam­ily held her as she slipped away, though not be­fore her baby – named Abi by Max – was de­liv­ered by cae­sarean. Max and his new wife Rainie now take care of the child.
