Gold Digger spoilers

In tonight's fifth episode, with the wedding day drawing nearer, Leo starts hatching a plan to bring his mum and dad back together, certain that they still love each other.

He’s aided in this task by the arrival of Kieran, Benjamin’s half-brother - a man Julia knew nothing about, though she covers for Benjamin in front of the kids.

With Benjamin’s lie exposed to her, Julia starts digging into his past and interrogating Kieran about his younger brother. Unnerved by how little she actually knows of her future husband, Julia’s more susceptible to Leo’s plans - finding herself enjoying a family day out with Ted at an old haunt of theirs.

But all of Leo’s child-like hopes for a reunion are dashed when talk turns to the wedding, and starts to realise that the happy past he always took solace in was a misremembering. It sends him down a dark path, towards Kieran.

Feeling the walls closing in on him, Benjamin makes a panicked decision that only confirms Julia’s suspicions: he's not who he says he is.
Gold Digger airs Tuesday nights on BBC One at 9PM.

You can watch episodes online and catch up via BBC iPlayer.
