Doctors spoilers: Will Jimmi Clay agree to Al Haskey's BIG plan?
Jimmi Clay was thrown when Al Haskey suggested the Doctors take over the running of the Icon and brew their own beer. Will he get on board with the plan?
Jimmi Clay (played by Adrian Lewis Morgan) couldn't believe it when his work colleague Al Haskey (Ian Midlane) put an unexpected plan to him in yesterday's episode of Doctors (1:45pm on BBC One, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings).
He wants the medics to take over the running of the local Icon Bar, which recently shutdown, and start brewing their own beer too!
After arranging a viewing of the Icon, Al goes full steam ahead on his plan, carrying out a survey to find out what people want from the Icon.
When colleagues Valerie Pitman (Sarah Moyle) and Ayesha Lee (Laura Rollins) take the survey, Al concludes it's all about the beer and can't wait to get things up and running when he and Jimmi take over the business.
However, is Jimmi fully on board with Al's ideas?
While checking out the premises with Al, Jimmi just sees a future of dealing with stroppy customers!
Will Al manage to convince Jimmi otherwise?
Elsewhere in Letherbridge, Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers) has a heart-to-heart with his daughter Izzie Torres (Bethan Moore) after she revealed she's now in therapy after her last disastrous visit to Letherbridge.
Daniel admits there are lots of things he could have handled better too, and is proud of her going to counselling.
However, there's a BIG hurdle Izzie still has to cross... making peace with her "wicked" stepmum Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh)!
But considering Zara previously slapped Izzie, who then called the police on Zara, will a meeting between the two end in more fireworks?
Meanwhile, Sid Vere (Ashley Rice) finds himself caught in a family dispute between two identical twin sisters, Alison Morrow (Robin Kristoffy) and Claire Williams (Alex Kristoffy).
Alison comes into the Minor Surgery Unit for a mole removal before Claire's wedding.
But why is Claire getting so twitchy about the procedure? What is going on between the sisters?
Doctors continues weekdays at 1:45pm on BBC One
