After Cathy climbed on to the top of a bridge to dance, she quickly lost her balance, coming close to falling off – luckily, dad Bob, Liam and Manpreet found the group and saved her.

"You know how dangerous that was, you could've fallen," a shocked Bob said.

"You were as nice as pie when you left, and now are bunking off school and acting like a lunatic."

"I keep freaking out and being horrible to everyone and I don't know why I'm doing it," she said.
