Things are still frosty between Sid Vere and Ayesha Lee after she accused him of fancying new patient, Charlotte Hill.

Charlotte wants a coffee and a chat as she's still finding it hard to adjust to life on the outside after being released from prison, having previously been convicted of murdering her husband Grant.

But with Ayesha's accusations playing on his mind, Sid decides to keep his distance. However, he may be too late to save himself! Later, he suddenly collapses back at the surgery, leading Ayesha to worry he may have been poisoned by Charlotte!
