Now that the truth about Peri Lomax’s parentage has been revealed, it was only a matter of time before we learned more about her father.
As we have previously reported Peri is not the youngest Lomax daughter at all, but instead the result of her eldest sister Leela’s teenage pregnancy with her childhood sweetheart Cameron.
We found this out when Leela’s new BFF Sienna Blake (Anna Passey) confided in her that she thought Peri was in fact her long-lost daughter who had been given away by her father Patrick (Jeremy Sheffield) at birth.
Faced with this Leela (Kirsty-Leigh Porter) was forced to admit the truth, and since then it seems that having someone to talk to about it has stirred up old feelings about Peri’s father.
Now the Lomax’s haven’t had an easy ride of things lately. They’ve discovered that dad Danny (Stephen Billington) has been having gay affairs behind mum Sam’s back, so we can understand why Leela is now questioning her decision to continue to let them raise her daughter.
And Sam Lomax (Lizzie Roper) can see this too so, in a bid to try and stop her family being ripped apart any further, tracks down Peri’s birth father Cameron (Cameron Moore) in prison to issue him a little warning.
Leela is hell-bent on peaking to Cameron and arranging for the two of them to take over as Peri’s parents, and soon manages to track him down to the Liverpool prison he is being detained in.
She orders a visit with her old flame, but Sam has got to him first and warned him that if he agrees to see Leela then she will see to it that he spends a lot longer in prison than originally planned.
What will Cameron do when Leela then turns up at the prison to visit him?
