Fans of Wild at Heart were of course sad to hear that the show has been cancelled, but the good news is that on Sunday, 30 December at 8:00PM, we’re promised an absolute belter of a farewell episode!
And of course, Stephen Tompkinson, Dawn Steele, Hayley Mills, Deon Stewardson, Lucy Jo Hudson and Olivia Scott-Taylor all return for the final time to recreate their roles, which they play against the stunning backdrop of the African plains for this two-hour single drama.
It’s New Year’s Eve at Leopard’s Den, and Alice has returned, but the stress of combining work with caring for a baby is causing tension between her and Danny, especially when their flirtatious new neighbour Martin makes a play for her…
Meanwhile, Liv is furious that Fatani hasn’t told his mother about their relationship, and it’s soon clear that no-one likes Rosie’s fiancé Dylan! And the family are devastated when three-legged cheetah, Cassidy, and his new mate are stolen by poachers.
And with only days until the wedding, a trip to the doctor brings devastating news for Du Plessis; his heart is weak and, without immediate bed rest, he must prepare for the worst.
With the clock ticking as Rosie and Dylan’s wedding approaches, Danny and Du Plessis set forth on one last adventure with the bride and groom to be. When the poachers’ identity is revealed and Rosie is forced to fly the plane away from danger, it looks as though Du Plessis has hatched his last disastrous plan…
