Sid has a surprise invite for Ayesha... to his parents' Ruby Wedding anniversary party! Will Ayesha agree to be Sid's 'girlfriend' for the event?
Ayesha Lee is still annoyed about yesterday's team-building exercise at the surgery, which left her feeling humiliated. But things are looking up, when colleague Dr Sid Vere invites the nurse out on a date. Well, sort of...
Sid's parents are having a Ruby Wedding anniversary party and he wants Ayesha to go with him, so his mum stops trying to set him up with a girl called Gabrielle. But how will Ayesha feel about being a decoy?
Unfortunately for Sid, it's not long before word gets out, and other staff members including Dr Al Haskey and receptionist Valerie Pitman start plotting to get invited to the fancy party too!
At the same time, surgery practice manager Becky Clarke tries to make amends with Ayesha after the disaster of the team-building exercise. She tries to convince Ayesha she's a role model and a trailblazer and shouldn't feel she's less important than anyone else, just because of where she started out in life. But will Ayesha listen?
And Karen Hollins investigates when a nosey neighbour suggests there's something dodgy going on between an elderly man Shoaib Reza and his 16-year-old neighbour, Stacey Stuart. But are things how they appear?
