Charity got wind of this plan and forced her way in. When Frank started selling timeshares to close friends and family, Megan decided she couldn't go through with it, but Charity stole Frank's phone and sent seductive texts to herself and showed these to Megan.

But when Megan learnt of Frank's secret wedding in Spain, she told Charity she couldn't go through with it, so Charity locked Megan in the cellar of The Woolpack and called the police on Frank.
