In the third series of Winners & Losers, viewers will discover the girls struggling to come to grips with the life-changing events that have befallen them.
After Matt’s horrific death in the series finale last year, everyone expects Bec to fall apart. But while her private torment is clear, she shows no overt sign of grief – even at Matt’s funeral.
Jenny is adjusting to family life in the wake of the bombshell that there is a new Gross sibling, Sam McKenzie, who it has emerged is Brian’s daughter from a previous relationship. The Gross house vibe has changed markedly, their freewheeling banter replaced with a forced politeness as they adjust to Sam, played by Katherine Hicks.
Sam is keen to get to know her biological father and half siblings, together with the challenge of mending her relationship with her mother. She will also meet her ʻMr Rightʼ, but the path to love will be rocky from the outset.
Sophie planned to postpone her trip to Kenya in the wake of Matt’s tragic passing. However, Bec insists she follow it through and when Doug gives her little reason to stay, Sophie heads to Nairobi with no return date locked in.
And despite protestations to the contrary, the Jackson meltdown has also deeply affected Frances’ sense of security.
Winners & Losers has enjoyed great success over two series, with a national audience of 1.8 million viewers.
