Series 12: 11. Maclean Fisher



Simon Maclean moved to the UK from Australia as a child, almost 50 years ago and had spent most of his adult life longing to return. With his sons from a previous marriage now grown up - and on the cusp of a new career, he believed the time could finally be right to make his dream a reality. The only thing standing in his way was fiancee Jane. An only child, Jane feared leaving her elderly mum in the UK on her own and was torn at the prospect of saying goodbye to the best friend who was more like a sister. A trial week in Perth was Simon's one and only chance to show Jane what their life could be like Down Under. Did it prove good enough to persuade her to put thousands of miles between her and the people she adored in the UK to stand by her man on the other side of the world? So where are Jane and Simon living now?
