The characters returned to the show in November 2006 to stay with their mother Lilith's cousin, Marlon and his wife Donna.

On 4 December 2006, it was revealed that Lilith had been remanded in police custody following her arrest for her involvement in an armed robbery. Marlon and Donna agreed with social services to take care of the children. After only a few days, Marlon called the social worker and explained he was finding it difficult caring for the children. An agreement was made with social services that the children would go and live with their Uncle Tony, a decision which left Donna and the children devastated.

Not long after the children had left Marlon and Donna, they had been informed by police that the children were missing. Shortly after being informed, they were found by Marlon's brother Eli living rough in woodland. Eli reunited them with Marlon, Donna and their Uncle Tony, but the children were reluctant to return home with Tony. Marlon was very reluctant to let them go home with their Uncle, as it was evident the children were very uncomfortable living with him. Acting on impulse, Marlon bundled the kids into the van and drove off unnoticed with Donna. Having stayed a night in a B&B, they realised their mistake and handed the children over to the police the next day. They were later informed the children would have to go into emergency foster care, which would mean they would be split up.

Shortly after Christmas, Marlon and Donna were informed by social services that it would be at least a month until they would next be able to see them, with the prospect of them taking the children back into their care being unlikely in the near future.

Donna and Marlon received a visit from the social worker, and were desperate to impress her with their preparedness. However, Val nearly ruined their plans by lighting up a cigarette in front of the kids. Donna screamed at her to put it out as Jon had been diagnosed with athsma. Donna and Marlon were thrilled when they received a positive reception from the social worker, as it seemed all their efforts had been worthwhile.

Donna and Marlon then turned up for their final meeting with social services and were glowing with pride as Mrs Jenkins said they'd a very positive report. However, just as it was all going swimmingly, Marlon let slip that the back room of the pub had been damaged by fire. The social worker looked into it before breaking the bad news, being that they wouldn't be able to foster the kids until they had more suitable accommodation sorted.

On 5 July 2007 the children moved in with Marlon and Donna, who had purchased Tall Trees Cottage several weeks previously.

A week later, The children were reunited with Lilith when she was released after the case collapsed due to the disappearance of a prosecution witness.

On 20 May 2007, Bob's wife Viv was celebrating her 50th birthday with Jamie in a park. It seemed that Errol knew this as he persuaded Bob to go to the park to sell ice cream. When Viv saw Bob she ran off. Errol told Bob to go after her and when they caught up Errol listened on but once again seemed to appear out of nowhere. After Viv rejected Bob and returned to "Emmerdale", Bob and Errol followed. Errol gave Bob some advice and told him that he'd walk home. After they said their goodbyes Bob walked away but turned around and Errol was gone.
