It’s a complicated case

Viewers have seen Rhona desperate to get Ivy under her care after Gus stole their embryos without her permission. He then used them to get his wife Lucy pregnant. Sadly Lucy died in childbirth and Rhona stepped in to help a grief-stricken Gus with the newborn as he struggled to cope.

But when Gus announced he was moving with the baby to France, Rhona acted and ran away with her. She was found and arrested, but walked free at her kidnap trial.

Solicitor Ethan has repeatedly warned her the case is complicated as Rhona has no legal rights to the child. However, Rhona has maintained the law is wrong because Ivy came from her DNA and is her child. Will she get the baby in the end?
