But Saif is also hiding a SHOCK secret.

He has just called off his large Hindu wedding because he has got cancer...

ALSO at the carwash is Judith Holland (Bella Hamblin).

As Karen is washing Judith's car, she makes a SHOCK discovery in the boot and rushes into the surgery for help!

WHAT does Karen find?

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?
