Scarlett Fullerby was a member of the research department at Weatherfield Marine Life Centre.
While visiting the centre to see her son Jude Appleton working, Mary Cole stopped Scarlett in order to ask if she could direct her to her son. Scarlett told Mary that was unaware of any Jude that worked at the centre.
Mary told Scarlett that Jude was a member of the centre's research department. Scarlett informed Mary that she was a member of the research department and that there were only three people in the team, none of whom were Jude.
Still believing her son, Mary said she may not have met him as he only joined the centre a few weeks ago but Scarlett still disputed her claims and suggested she may have visited the wrong marine centre. Mary's friend Tracy Barlow apologised to Scarlett, claiming that they may be at cross-purposes.
Mary later found Jude working at the gift shop and the two conspired to fool his wife Angie, who had also called by the life centre, that he had the job in the research development. Scarlett bumped into Mary again and asked if she had any success in finding her son. Angie pointed to Jude, which confused Scarlett, who recognised him from working in the gift shop. Before Scarlett could interject, Mary interrupted her and told Jude to take Angie out and head back to the office.
