Tonight’s fiery episode of Ex On The Beach finds Talitha in a love triangle as her ex Joss Mooney arrives on the beach to add further drama to life in the villa.
Joss, who reckons he’s “probably the best-looking blonde in the UK”, previously dated Talitha for a year on and off. He has also previously dated Emma-Jane (who dumped him for Ross), so his arrival in the house is definitely going to add sparks to an already fired-up group.
And in an exclusive chat with MTV UK, Joss revealed what he really thinks about Ashley, saying: “I do have feelings for Talitha. Meanwhile, fearful of her ex arriving, Talitha says: “I think Joss sees it as Ash has stolen me from him. The following day, Chloe looked on in shock as the first ex arrived and her ex Ross walked out of the sea! Vicky was buzzin' when her Aussie ex Dan, who she met on Geordie Shore, came out of the sea!
Meanwhile, Vicky confronted Aussie hunk Dan about her doubts, before the pair had a cheeky tash on after their canoeing date. When Helene Falconer moved to New Zealand with her partner and their baby daughter Amy, she dreamed of a bright future for them all. On a sunny May day earlier this year at Heathrow Airport, I said goodbye to my beautiful five-year-old daughter Amy*.
I loved being pregnant, but the night I went into labour in May 2007 Ross had been smoking pot, so I drove us both to the hospital.
Due to this legislation, once a child has what is called habitual residence in a country (which can sometimes be established in as little as three months), they cannot be removed without parental consent or court permission.
The views expressed in the contents above are those of our users and do not necessarily reflect the views of MailOnline. I was told that as Amy had been living in New Zealand for more than 12 months, she was now considered a habitual resident. I told her over and over that I loved her, but when she asked why I couldna€™t go with them, I could not find the words to explain.
Ross was on a two-year working visa and said he wanted us all to return to his hometown of Wellington when Amy was six months. If I wanted to come back to England, I would need consent from Ross or the courts to bring her with me. Then she was taken from my arms by her father, who carried her through passport control clutching her favourite toy, a fluffy lamb.
Generally, relocation is not favoured by the courts because they feel that children should have two parents to whom they have regular access. We were not married and I took it as a given that I could return to England with Amy if I chose. Amy would have to remain in Wellington until she was 16 and able to make her own choice of where to live.
But my ex-partner Ross* has used the power of the law to tear us apart, and for months now she has been living with him in his native New Zealand. Ross was working at a call centre and his friends were all travelling but living in London.


My father worried about Rossa€™s lack of a permanent job and my mum was devastated that we were moving so far away.We arrived in Wellington in December 2007 and, for three months, we stayed with a friend of Rossa€™s in his spare room while I found us a flat. In my dark moments a€“ and there are many a€“ it has crossed my mind that one way of coping with the pain would be to pretend she has died. My priority was Amy but I felt I would lose my sanity if I remained.I had no choice but to allow Ross to come and get her. I just shrugged it off as part of his overseas experience.My job as a regional medical sales manager was well-paid and I had a comfortable home in London. I wasna€™t prepared for how homesick I felt; I missed my parents and felt disorientated, not knowing the local geography or how to get anywhere.
If I refused I faced prison, fines and a criminal recordOver the next two years in New Zealand I fought to bring Amy home to England with me.
At first I saw it as a challenge, but the gloss soon wore off and I felt even more miserable.Ross was reluctant to find work. I took a job as a recruitment consultant, which didna€™t compare with my stimulating former career.
I was living on my nerves throughout that time, frightened of anything getting back to the courts that might imply I was a bad mum. For six months Ross stayed at home watching TV, smoking pot and surfing the internet for porn (which I only discovered when I looked at my computer history). I felt I couldna€™t even cry in front of anyone in case they thought I wasna€™t holding it together.Once in court, I gave strong reasons why I could provide a great life for Amy in the UK and did everything in my power to prove that Amy would not lose contact with her father. But he seemed less concerned about taking responsibility and the fact that I paid for everything.
I assured them I would fly Amy back four times a year to visit him, and buy Ross a laptop so he could Skype her. Ross did suggest taking her out of nursery so she could be at home with him, but I thought that would be an excuse for him not to find a proper job. After six months, I told Ross it wasna€™t working but he persuaded me to give it another year. In the end, I hated the country and the way the courts treated me.By now, I was having suicidal thoughts and had to get away.
My father Richard, 79, a retired teacher, had been seriously ill for a few months, so I had an excuse to return home.
Eventually he suggested it was probably better for her to come with me because his job at a call centre was shift work and Amy was not at school at this point.Boarding the plane to London on 3 November last year, I felt like a weight had been lifted.
Back in my hometown of Stamford, Lincolnshire, we stayed with my mother Rosalind, 73, a retired nurse. When I met a new friend, he said hea€™d heard she didna€™t really like me, and the friendship died as I lost confidence.
When I suggested I join a gym to lose my baby weight, he made me feel guilty for leaving Amy.
I looked at my old life and thought, a€?My God, I didna€™t realise how lucky I was.a€™I had no support system. I spent time with Dad, had dinners with friends and organised play dates for Amy; I came off the antidepressants.
He was not particularly close to his family either, and the penny dropped about his attitude to women when I saw the disrespectful way he spoke to his mother.Over time, I could feel myself shrinking, physically and psychologically. He knew my dad was unwell, but was beginning to suspect that I had no plans to return to New Zealand with Amy. An hour after we had returned from the funeral, police arrived at my muma€™s house and served me with Hague Convention papers stating I was required to attend a hearing at the Royal Courts of Justice on 9 March to either consent to Amy returning to New Zealand or defend it. Ross and I separated in January 2010 a€“ I thought it would be better for Amy not to be exposed to our arguments any more.
After they left, I was physically sick.I found a female lawyer in Leicester who specialises in international child abduction.
Whenever he came to drop her off or pick her up wea€™d start to quarrel, so poor Amy still saw the conflict between us.I felt profound despair.


I was living in a cold, damp house, struggling to pay the bills on my own, and I told Ross I was deeply unhappy. He announced that I was welcome to go back to England if I wanted but that Amy would have to stay with him. No matter how depressed I was in New Zealand, that was not a reason not to return Amy as Ross said he would look after her full time.
Stunned, I used what was left of my savings to consult lawyers to see what my legal position was.
I have drawn solace from being in touch with other women who have found themselves caught in this living nightmareI had no choice but to allow Ross to come and get her. This was the first time I had ever heard of the Hague Convention, and what I discovered was devastating. I told Amy that New Zealand made Mummy very unhappy and that Daddy loved her and wanted her back. One of them told me I would have to forcibly uncurl her fingers from me as they were not allowed to touch her. I went outside to compose myself, but then they refused to let me back in, saying Amy was calm now and I would only upset her again.
Ia€™ve tried to put myself in Rossa€™s shoes, and had counselling to understand how he feels.
I know he loves Amy but Ia€™m sure he knows deep down she would have a better life here with me.
I dona€™t feel she is in danger a€“ her basic needs are being met a€“ but her emotional and educational needs are being ignored. I dona€™t ask but I am pretty certain he is still smoking pot.Ross has not consented to contact yet. I can make no plans to see her, even though I would fly to New Zealand to pick her up if necessary. I want her to spend time in England on a regular basis a€“ her six-week summer holidays at least.
I have a recurring nightmare that Amy has fallen over and is hurt and calling for me and Ia€™m not there.
Being a mother is part of who I am, and a big chunk is missing; ita€™s every mothera€™s worst nightmare. I appreciate he loves his daughter a€“ at least he isna€™t one of those dads who has walked out on his child.
I just want to move on with my life, get a good job and earn money so that when Amy is older, if she wants to study or go on holiday, I have the resources to make that possible for her. There is a social stigma about mums who leave their children but, in my case, it was totally against my will. Being with Ross made me wary of relationships, but I can now imagine meeting a new man one day, and I would even like another child. However, Ia€™d be more comfortable with the idea of going to a sperm bank because I would always have that fear that if I split up from my partner, he would take our baby away.
I have drawn solace from being in touch with other women who have found themselves caught in this living nightmare. I went to New Zealand out of the best intentions and now I just want people to know the dangers of doing what I did. If something like this can happen to me, it can happen to anyone.What is The Hague Convention?a—? The 1980 Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction is an agreement between certain countries a€” currently 88 a€” to protect children from the effects of wrongful removal (abduction) and to return them to the country where they normally live, so welfare issues of residence (custody) and contact (access) can be decided by the courts of that country.
