      ... homesick and then feeling even worse hearing that Imogen was really upset and just wanting her mummy home :( A morning of not going out anywhere was great but it was soon time to brave the weather head off to see Jade.

Her husband left her and she slept around, but because she was still married, when she got pregnant, she was considered a criminal. The baby ended up dying which is how she was found out.
