Something along the lines of: ‘Dear Debbie, if you’re wondering right now where Cameron is, well, he’s with me – and he’s staying with me. Your ever-loving aunt, Chas’. Meanwhile, at Tug Ghyll cottage, Cameron’s filled with guilt as he spends his last night with Debbie, who has absolutely no idea that he’s planning to blow her world apart.
