David's wife, Catherine (Lynsey Baxter), warns Alex that Gemma will get hurt.
David has had several affairs before and Gemma is only one of a long line of women who David has wooed and then abandoned. The idea of passion followed by betrayal excites Alex - but since his intention is for Gemma to eventually leave David he is not unduly worried by the warnings.
He is, however, extremely curious and interested in Catherine, a wronged wife who seems more concerned about the mistress than herself.
David gives Alex a present to give to Gemma and, to Alex's surprise, confesses that he has fallen in love with her.
Alex spends Christmas with Chris, Gemma and her mother Beatrice. When Alex gives Gemma the present - a pendant with her birth sign - as if it is from him, she knows who it is from and is over the moon.
