There's drama ahead on Fair City when Hughie snaps at Heather and gives her her marching orders, take a sneak peek at the episode here.

Coming up in Wednesday night's instalment, a fuming Hughie tells a tearful Heather he's had enough.

"This situation is not healthy, for either of us," he says.

"We're a team you and me. I'm the one that pulled you through," Heather insists.

"No, you weren't," he fires back.

"You needed me," she claims.

"To put a drink in my hand? Yeah, great help you were," Hughie replies sarcastically. "I was a complete mess but you only made me worse."

He then gets to the point, saying: "You're not my saviour Heather alright, so do us all a favour, go on home to Brazil with your husband."
