During the day, nurse Ayesha Lee and surgery receptionist Valerie Pitman do their best to psyche out the other. Will Valerie's nerves suddenly get the better of her and cause her to lose her mojo again just before the ultimate showdown?

Meanwhile, Daniel Granger is keeping his distance from wife Zara Carmichael after their huge bust-up over his daughter Izzie Torres's shock allegation against Zara, and the angry arrival of Izzie's mum Lisa to find out what's been going on in the Carmichael-Granger house.

Although Zara tries to explain her actions and the reasons why she and Izzie didn't manage to get along, Daniel brands her a bully! Can Zara find a way to get back in Daniel's good books?

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.
