Ruhma Carter (played by Bharti Patel) feels terrible about the turn of events involving Doug Machin (Michael Hobbs) and his pregnant fiancee Carrie Wade (Sarah Ovens) on Doctors (1:45pm on BBC One, see our TV Guide (opens in new tab) for full listings).

Last week, Carrie was rushed to hospital where she gave birth under traumatic circumstances, after catching Doug and midwife Ruhma in an intimate embrace!

But to Ruhma's shock, Doug, who was the one who made a move on her, is now blaming Ruhma for the terrible turn of events.

Will Carrie believe her?
