Doctors Spoilers: Ruhma Carter and daughter Alia Hanif get makeovers!

Ruhma and her daughter Alia enjoy a fun day of makeovers, dancing and laughter. But Ruhma is worried they are breaking the rules of Ramadan

Ruhma and her teenage daughter Alia spend some fun time together when they watch a hilarious beauty vlog, and then decide to give each other makeovers.

However, as a Muslim family, Ruhma suddenly worries their self-indulgent behaviour goes against the rules of Ramadan - the annual religious event. But Alia wisely points out they are not being silly and selfish, they are thinking about each other.

Elsewhere in Letherbridge, it looks like Jimmy is still planning to cash-in his partnership at The Mill so he can give ex-wife Amanda £80,000 to get back on her feet financially. But will Amanda confirm everyone's suspicions, take the money and run?

Doctors continues weekdays at 1:45pm on BBC 1

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.
