Daniel may have moved back in with Zara after his wife's one-night stand with Sid. But it looks like their marriage is still in BIG trouble...

Zara Carmichael is confident her marriage to Daniel Granger can be saved since her husband has moved back home again after her drunken one-night stand with surgery work colleague Sid Vere. However, their marriage is still on shaky ground and the couple are sleeping in separate bedrooms.
