When Daniel arrives to take son Joe off for the weekend, the reality of his and Zara's break-up really hits home. Did they make the right decision?

Zara Carmichael and Daniel Granger have been trying to carry on business as usual at The Mill since the married medics decided to go their separate ways after too many arguments.

However, Daniel's decision to move out is still taking some time to settle in for his wife Zara and the couple's young son Joe Carmichael Granger.

So when Daniel arrives to collect Joe for the weekend, Zara can't help feel sad when Joe seems super-excited and almost forgets to kiss her goodbye. Will they all get used to the new arrangement in time? Or have Daniel and Zara made a mistake in breaking up?

Meanwhile, Al Haskey's 15 minutes of fame continues after he's invited to appear on the radio talking to local shock jock, 'Doctor' Davey Scholes about the video footage that went viral showing Al angrily clashing with the driver of a tourist bus, which almost ran him over.

But the interview takes an unexpected turn when Davey springs a surprise on 'big bus man' Al. Could this be the end of the medic's short-lived fame?

Elsewhere in Letherbridge, policeman Rob Hollins arrives home to discover his wife Karen is all glammed-up and has invited a very special guest to dinner. But who is it?
