Gordon is still awaiting an answer from Mrs Tembe after his marriage proposal. But he's in for a surprise when she drops a shock bombshell...

Mrs Tembe has been in a right old muddle since church vicar Gordon Clement proposed marriage during a romantic evening out. She's been keeping him in suspense, so he's still unsure if her answer is yes... or no!

Mrs Tembe realises it is d-day and time to make a decision. But when she visits Gordon at the church, he doesn't get the answer he was hoping for when instead the surgery practice manager drops the shock bombshell she has decided to train to become a vicar!

Will Gordon support Mrs Tembe's decision despite his own personal disappointment over his doomed marriage proposal?

Meanwhile, Emma Reid and Zara Carmichael have a girlie getaway to a local spa for some rest and relaxation. However, when Emma innocently asks how things are going now between Zara and her husband Daniel Granger, after Zara's one-night stand with colleague Sid Vere at Christmas, Zara bursts into tears! Are Zara and Daniel definitely doomed?

Simon Timblick

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?!

Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy. 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.
