Confessing to dad George Knight and his girlfriend Elaine Peacock, she's hurt when George snaps at her. He tells her that he's had her mum's number for years but despite his attempts to contact her, there's been radio silence - it's clear she doesn't want to be found.
Elaine is concerned for an upset Anna and tells George that it's natural for her to want to speak to her mum. Seeing the sense in Elaine's words, George tells Anna he gives her his blessing to make the call.
