Viewers have seen him accept a small loan from his dad’s girlfriend Brenda Walker in an attempt to help him get back on his feet.
However his plans to offer free delivery to surrounding villages for orders hit the skids when his dad pointed out that he would make a significant loss on each delivery.
Ignoring Eric’s business savvy, David decided to go ahead.
