Ashley Peacock: "What did I do wrong eh? What did I do that was so bad that you had to take everything away from me? I mean, is it too much to ask? Would it made a difference if he could have been mine? I mean, what is this... some kinda challenge? Well don't you think I've suffered enough? I mean, why don't you burn the house down, drive a lorry into it... strike me down with a flamin' bolt of lightning."
