Doctors spoilers: Sid Vere confronts his parents about the SHOCK family secret

Doctors, Tye Vere

Sid is determined to find out more about his stillborn brother and why his parents have covered up this family secret for so long...

Sid Vere is still reeling from the revelation he had a stillborn baby brother and his parents Estelle and Tye have covered up the truth for years.

With Tye's 60th birthday celebrations approaching, Sid sees an opportunity to revisit his parents' house and find out more about the family secret.

But Estelle shuts down the conversation, and doesn't think it's the right time to talk about it. However, Sid just thinks she's trying to avoid his questions... and he's not giving up.

He's in for a surprise when it's Tye opens up about the baby bombshell. But when the memories become too painful - about the baby who was born severely deformed - he snaps and shouts at Sid. Has Sid pushed his parents too far?

Back at the surgery, Becky Clarke tries to play matchmaker between Daniel Granger and Zara Carmichael, who appear to have temporarily ended their squabbles after working together during the plague emergency.

But it's Becky who is in for a surprise when she discovers the REAL reason behind Daniel and Zara's marriage break-up...

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.
