David continued: "Carla is the one who pushes the visit. She is prone to doing that with Roy. She pushes him into a situation that he isn't comfortable with and then he discovers that Richard is very unwell and Carla says he has got to tell him who he really is.

"Richard is less socially awkward than Roy. He is into football and is a bit more 'user friendly'. Richard is very welcoming and warm. He is pleased to see Roy, as they had the relationship online playing the online game.

"It is tricky for Roy. He knows that Richard was in care, he was put up for adoption and Roy feels as though he owes it to Richard to tell him something of his history and how he ended up in care."
