The day after John and Maureen's 25th wedding anniversary after arranging a party and baking a cake with Anna, Catherine attempted suicide.
After a disagreement with Anna about her scales whilst her parents were away on a trip, Catherine overdosed once again. It was after this that the family decided to section her under the Mental Health Act.
Catherine started a job and admitted that her parents' relationship was the cause of her anorexia. Eventually she was brought home by a social worker. She had deprived herself of food for too long and sadly died aged 22.
