Tegs Ratcliffe only appeared in the first four episodes of this series before he moved to Germany. It was a big decision between staying or leaving with his mum and her family. His last scene was him telling Justine Dean that he was going to Germany. They both discussed their tricky friendship and mildly discussed about their hidden relationship. In the end Tegs leaned in for a kiss but stopped when he realized that they were unfortunately nothing more than friends.
