Is David’s life in danger?
During Monday night’s episode, Griff invited Max on a camping trip with the rest of the group and sold the experience as a fun time with the guys.
David walked in to find Max packing his backpack and asking if they had any spare torches laying around the house.
David exclaimed: “I thought I made myself clear, you’re not going camping with Griff and his little low-life mates.”
Max laughed at David exerting his authority and snapped back: “Come on David, we both know you can’t stop me.”
Determined, David replied: “Max, I am only looking out for you!” however, Max was having none of it: “You’re lying. I bet you want me to go, no one wants me around here anyway.
“You only put up with me because you have to, you inherited me, like a piece of furniture, I am a pain in your backside, you always say it. I have found my tribe now.
“The people I am supposed to be with,” he added before he walked away from the conversation
