Emma becomes concerned over Zara's bitter behaviour towards Daniel and Becky, who are officially back together on Doctors.

Now that the word is out about Daniel Granger (played by Matthew Chambers) and Becky Clarke's (Ali Bastian) secret fling on Doctors (opens in new tab), there's no more need for them to sneak around.

So much to the surprise of Daniel's estranged wife Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh), he and Becky have rekindled their romance and he has invited her out on a date!

However, in today's episode of Doctors (opens in new tab), the news doesn't go down too well with Zara, who keeps giving Daniel and Becky the evil eye throughout the day and tries to stir up trouble between them.

Emma Reid (Dido Miles) wonders what's wrong with Zara. Is she jealous, even though she told Daniel he was free to date who he wants now they are no longer together?

Can Emma get to the bottom of Zara's bad mood before she truly snaps?
