Will there be any heat when single medics Zara and Emma go out on a double date with a couple of firefighters on Doctors?

Zara Carmichael (played by Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) and Emma Reid (Dido Miles) are going on a DOUBLE date on Doctors!

The single medics signed-up to a dating app, after the break-up of Zara's marriage to Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers) and have matched with a couple of firefighters. But will it be alright on the night?

After getting ready and waiting for their cab into town, Zara starts to get cold feet! Surely she's not thinking about her ex, Daniel? He's already moved onto a new relationship with surgery practice manager Becky Clarke (Ali Bastian).

Emma convinces Zara it is just last-minute nerves and they should go ahead with their mission of love!

Luckily, the ladies are in for a treat as two good-looking fellas Guy Fisher (Richard Keep) and Paul Prescott (Peter Basham) await them.

But while Emma and Paul appear to hit it off, things don't get off to a great start between Zara and Guy.

Zara keeps trying to take control and Guy begins to find her too much!

However, the fun finally begins as Zara and Guy get competitive over their career choices. And when Zara cracks a joke and lightens up a bit, Guy starts to see her in a new light.

But the question is, will either couple decide to meet for a second date?

Meanwhile, Becky has been pushing Daniel to tell his young son Joe about their new relationship. Has the time finally come to break the news?
