Instead, she meets Del Boy whom shares her interests in the song Old Shep. Del accompanies Heather to her house, where he discovers she has a son. Del and Heather begin a relationship, and Del becomes a father figure to Darren. Just before Christmas, Del proposes to Heather. Unfortunately for Del, Heather received a letter from Vic, who is now living in Southampton. Vic wishes for Heather and Darren to move back with him, and Heather feels she owes it to Vic. Heather breaks off the engagement with Del, leaving him heartbroken. However, Del manages to cheer himself up by paying a group of carol singers to sing Old Shep.
