In recent episodes, you will have seen Ellie open up to Freddie and her family about the night she was raped by Nick. With support and encouragement from those around her, Ellie made the important decision to report Nick to the police.

In this video, Sophie Porley (Ellie) and Greg Finnegan (James) discuss the difficulties Ellie faced when the families found out, and what lead Ellie to take her case to the police.
