Season Four  began on Monday September 16th 2013, the first anniversary of City Girls' Writer's Express debut and concluded on Wednesday 19th February 2014.

Season Four met new characters Chris Halliday, Amanda Samuels and Tony Luciano as well as Izzie's family Dad John, mother Natasha and sister Ellie.

Season Four OverviewEdit


Chris' true colours were soon exposed

Despite Ashley taking responsibility for the pregnancy test, Izzie eventually confessed that she was the one who was pregnant. Izzie and Max eventually put their issues aside and began to look forward to parenthood. However, the arrival of Amanda Samuels at the West Lodge Advertiser caused Izzie a number of headaches. Bitchy Amanda enjoyed to make an hormonal Izzie feel insecure in her relationship.  Holly struggled to come to terms with her recovery from her domestic violence ordeal, her relationship with Jake was in tatters as she continued to push him away. Eventually she pushed too hard and Jake left London behind, Holly was hurt and ended up seeking solace in one night stands. However, in wake of John Roberts cancer and death, Jake returned with a new lady on his arm.  Season Four saw Ashley come into her own as a night club owner she inherited Destiny from Drew. Taking Ashllie's into her hands, Ashley hired Chris Halliday as an assistant manager. The pair struggled to date especially after free spirit Ashley discovered Chris had a daughter. But that wasn't Chris' only secret as it was revealed that Chris was actually working for the dark, dangerous Tony Luciano in attempt to ruin Ashllie's reputation and force her to sell the club. Jack and Nicole's return created more than just the one surprise as they revealed that they had got married while away. However, reality soon hit the couple as Jack led himself into debt trying to provide a home and a life for his new wife. Jack suffered a violent beating from loan shark Ethan Buckley who soon resorted to desperate measures to punish Jack for his lack of repayment.


The Roberts Family

Meanwhile, Izzie was in for a shock when over Christmas it was revealed that her father John's cancer had returned and was terminal. The Roberts family came together and were devastated as John revealed the truth about his son Jake. With Izzie by his side, John passed away leaving behind his fractured family. Izzie eventually opened up and allowed Jake into her life.

Holly's one night stand with brother-in-law Jack came back to haunt Holly as Nicole overheard her talking to Ashley. Holly was devastated by Nicole's anger and feels guilty that they couldn't make up before Nicole's horrifying accident which left her in a coma. In a shock twist, loan shark Ethan tried to kill Jack by driving straight for him, Nicole pushed him out of the way and got caught in the crossfire leaving her in a coma. Season Four ended with Nicole's heart stopping as Jack begged doctors to save his wife's life.

The last part of Season Four was a rollercoaster for Izzie as a clash with Amanda ended up with Izzie at the bottom of a flight of stairs. Izzie and Max were relieved to be told that baby Chloe would be okay, with a little help from Jake, Max created the perfect romantic setting and proposed to Izzie. Holly battled with her jealousy of Jake's relationship with Chrissie James throughout the last part of Season Four, however after Jake was involved in a car crash, Holly declared her love and Jake asked her to marry him. In a surprising twist, Chris approached Ashley after losing everything and asked her to run away with him to avoid a custody battle for daughter Emily against her mother Amanda Samuels. Ashley realised that she wasn't in love with Chris and let him leave without her.

In a cruel twist, a car accident saw the stress take it's toll on Izzie's body and she went into labour three months early. In the most heartbreaking scenes of City Girls' history, baby Chloe died and Izzie and Max grieved the loss of their daughter.
