However, Natasha had not discussed this with Mark before announcing it, but later assures him that it was necessary to keep the villagers on side.

A couple of months after the arrival of the Wyldes, Faye Lamb turned up in the village after seeing Mark's photo in a magazine profile of the family.

Natasha, however, insisted that Mark arrange a job for Ryan in Dubai, which he initially did but later withdrew only days before Ryan was due to leave, as he had bonded with Ryan.

Natasha was not happy, warning Mark that it was only a matter of time before the truth came out.

In late May, it was revealed that Mark was married to Faye, making his marriage to Natasha bigamous, and his real name was Daniel Lamb.

He went missing twenty-seven years ago, after going to pick up a friend from the station, and never returned.

Mark saw her several times, and eventually they had a long conversation in the woods.

He apologised for the way he treated her in the past and put her up in an expensive flat.

But Natasha guessed what Mark was doing and confronted them, just as they were making plans for Faye to move on.

Faye told her this but Natasha refused to believe it, leading to a row.

They were in serious debt as his company had just gone bankrupt.
