Becky's new living arrangement with boyfriend Tam gets off to a shaky start when she tries to help him find a new job

Becky Clarke is thrilled her boyfriend Tam Campbell has moved down from Scotland to Letherbridge and they can finally live together. However, Tam has been down in the dumps since he arrived after being made redundant.

So, super-achieving surgery practice manager Becky tries to help out by finding Tam a new job and also giving him some instructions about household stuff (like how to run the dishwasher!) while he's at home during the day.

But her efforts backfire and it leads to an argument. Will Becky's bossy ways drive Tam back to Scotland? Or will the couple enjoy kissing and making up?

Elsewhere in Letherbridge, Karen and Rob Hollins are fostering six-year-old Mikey Taylor-Wood, after the court's decision to remove the boy from the care of parents, Beth and Jadie.

Karen thinks it's evil for any parent to want to harm their own child. However, after seeing how loving Beth and Jadie are around Mikey during their first contact visit, she begins to wonder if the court have got it all wrong and Beth and Jadie are NOT abusive parents.

Rob has already warned Karen they're not to get involved in the case. But Karen can't resist doing some secret digging to find out more...

Doctors, Valerie Pitman, Brandon Hale, Tayla Macey

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?

Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!
