Just when you thought Fair City’s Heather couldn’t sink any lower she does just that and will shock viewers in tonight’s New Year’s Eve episode when she drugs her own daughter to remain the centre of attention during the festivities.
The conniving Carrigstown dweller has secretly been loving the attention that she has been getting since her little girl Ellie fell ill over Christmas.
The little girl was hospitalised over Christmas for appendicitis but Heather is more than put out that Ellie is now on the mend and is interfering her New Year’s celebrations.
However, Renee’s brother-in-law Hughie who has recently come into an inheritance, is keen for Ellie to stay up until midnight and celebrate the New Year but Heather is not keen on letting go of Hughie’s affection.
Afraid that her daughter might steal the spotlight, Heather makes out that Ellie is too sick to join in and spikes her Mi Wadi with a sleeping tablet to ensure she is knocked out before the countdown.
This isn’t the first time Heather, played by Úna Kavanagh, has wronged a member of her family this year as last month she slept with her brother-in-law Max.
The pair were rumbled by Hughie, who threatened to spill the beans to Heather’s sister Farrah but thought the better of it and the couple later left Carrigstown bound for Australia... far away from villainous Heather.
