He plays Love Island wannabe Kyle Rhys who is pressuring his girlfriend Maya Jordan to have some cosmetic surgery at The Mill

Remember Max Branning's nephew Joey in EastEnders? In today's episode of Doctors, David Witts plays Love Island wannabe Kyle Rhys, who drops his worried girlfriend Maya Jordan off at The Mill for minor surgery but doesn't stick around to support her.

Maya is scared of having surgery and Dr Sid Vere soon discovers her boyfriend Kyle is putting pressure on her to have the surgery to remove a visible cyst between her breasts.

After Maya reveals how she has always lacked body-confidence because she was bullied at school about the cyst, Sid makes it clear it has to be Maya's choice whether or not to have the procedure. But how will Kyle react when he discovers Sid has been influencing Maya's decision?

Meanwhile, Valerie Pitman returns to work for the first time since her 'poison pen letters' to murdered Grant Hill were leaked to the press. And there's a twist in the murder re-investigation when Rob Hollins discovers Grant's dad was not his biological father. Was this an oversight in the original investigation on the part of Rob's colleague DI Mark Addison?

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?

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

He has reported LIVE from the red carpet at The British Soap Awards interviewing glammed-up stars from soapland, and hosted a Facebook LIVE session for Metro with Home and Away legend Ray Meagher (Alf "Stone the flamin' crows!" Stewart) to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Aussie soap.


Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)


And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
