It seemed that Steph had finally found happiness with old friend Max until she was widowed on their wedding day after a drunken Niall accidentally ran Max over. Following Max's death, Steph became involved with Niall - until she realised he was a vengeful murderer! Steph witnessed Niall committing suicide after she told him she didn't love him, and returned to the village attempting to get over her trauma.
Steph has recently started up her own dance school, and is running the MOBS smoothie bar while taking care of Max's little brother Tom.
Carley, meanwhile, entertains off screen as well as on, with her all-girl band Diamond.
