Daniel and Joe decide they've had quite enough of the talking nuisance, Harper on Doctors. Can Zara stand to be parted from his soothing voice?

There's a SHOCK loss for Zara Carmichael (played by Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) in today's episode of Doctors... (Mon to Thurs, 1:45pm on BBC One, see our TV Guide for full listings)

Zara is supposed to be joining in the family barbecue with her partner, Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers) and their young son, Joe (Oliver Falconer).

But instead, Zara would much rather spend time with her speaking gizmo-gadget, Harper!

Even though Zara refuses to admit she has an addiction, Daniel and Joe decide it's time for some tough love.

Yes, it's time for Harper to go!

But will Zara really let the fellas send her beloved Harper up in flames in a Viking burial?

Doctors, Sid Vere

Sid lets loose at Shak's wild house party on Doctors. Watch out for the toxic tequila!

Elsewhere in Letherbridge, it's the night of Shak Hanif's (Sunjay Midda) party while his mum, Ruhma Carter (Bharti Patel) is still away on holiday.

Unfortunately, it's not long before things get out of hand when it is discovered one of the guests has supplied Shak with some toxic tequila, which makes everyone sick!

Meanwhile, Shak's neighbour, Kate Bennett (played by Victoria Ekanoye, who was Angie Appleton in Corrie) storms around to complain about the noise.

But will Kate stay to enjoy the party when Bear Sylvester (Dex Lee) catches her eye!

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.

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.
