Imogen Hollins is reeling after new boyfriend Sid Vere's SHOCK medical discovery on Doctors. But now she's gone into full denial mode...

Just when Dr Sid Vere (played by Ashley Rice) and Imogen Hollins (Charlie Clemmow) have finally got together on Doctors (1:45pm on BBC One, see our TV Guide for full listings), Sid has made a SHOCK discovery that has suddenly thrown Imogen's future happiness into jeopardy...

However, Imogen appears to be in denial over her health crisis and instead channels all her energy into making ArtFest a success.

After she ignores a phone message from him, worried Sid turns up at the book launch event Imogen is running. He's determined to talk to her about the lump he discovered. But Imogen uses the book launch as an excuse to avoid Sid and send him packing!

But as the burden of her secret starts to become too much, WHO will Imogen choose to share her SHOCK news with?

Meanwhile, unaware of her daughter's crisis, surgery receptionist Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson) continues filming ArtFest interviews with the surgery staff, discussing their relationship with art and what it means to them personally.

Next up, it's midwife Ruhma Carter's (Bharti Patel) turn to take the hotseat. But what will Ruhma reveal on camera?

ALSO, romance author Ursula Van der Voort (Rebecca Lock) is in Letherbridge to promote her latest book at the Letherbridge Gallery as part of the ArtFest.
