During a night out on the town, Zara drops her bombshell and confronts co-worker Becky over sleeping with Daniel on Doctors...
Just before Doctors (opens in new tab) went on a summer break back in June, Dr Zara Carmichael (played by Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) discovered that her estranged husband Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers) had been secretly hooking-up with surgery Practice Manager, Becky Clarke (Ali Bastian).
However, so far Zara hasn't exploded in an angry rage at the pair. So does that mean she's OK with the pairing?
After inviting Becky along for a girls' night out, under the pretense she wants some dating advice, Zara seizes the moment to twist the knife...
Zara asks Becky if there is a man in her life, but Becky lies there's been no one since she had her fling with hunky surgery cleaner Enzo D'Agostino.
Knowing she is lying, Zara drops the bombshell she knows Becky has been sleeping with Daniel!
Before Becky can squirm her way out of trouble, Zara reads her the riot act and leaves her love rival feeling well and truly humiliated when she states Daniel can do a lot better. Ouch!
Meanwhile, midwife Ruhma Carter (Bharti Patel) meets up with new parents Laura (Julia Haworth) and Russell Wade (Nigel Boyle) and takes them some gifts for their newborn baby, Daisy May.
However, Russell is starting to get irritated by Ruhma's continued presence. Just because Ruhma previously gave the couple some money to help clear their IVF treatment debts, does she now think they are super best friends?
Elsewhere, Al Haskey (Ian Midlane) gets involved when he spots a pregnant patient Jenny Lewis (Rachel Hosker) heavily drinking at a beer festival.
But having previously sensed that Jenny doesn't really want to keep the baby, will she listen to the medic's advice?
Doctors continues weekdays at 1:45pm on BBC One
