Sid collapses!

Sid has been struggling to keep up with his workload and, at the end of the day, just as Valerie returns from the hospital, Sid faints. Heston steps in to treat him and The Mill family fuss around him, caring. Valerie looks on from the sidelines, feeling alone. 

Valerie's going to see the haematologist today to find out the results of her tests. She tells Mrs Tembe and that she has to go out later but, as Acting Practice Manager, Mrs Tembe is rather irritated. At the hospital, the doctor tells Valerie she has Hodgin Lymphoma, a rare form of cancer. She'll need to start chemotherapy asap.

Al comes in looking like the cat who's got the cream after spending another night with Mo. News starts to spread round The Mill and Niamh blusters that Al's love life is nothing to do with her, but in reality she feels hurt. 

Also, Ayesha treats a patient who has just won the lottery. Only one snag – he can't seem to find the ticket.

I've always had a passion for TV and movies, and got my dream job as TV Times Listings Editor over a decade ago. previously I was interviewing celebrities on a freelance basis for What's On TV, TV Easy and TV & Satellite Week magazines. There's nothing better than going behind-the-scenes of TV shows to bring our readers on set secrets and gossip! As well as my main role at TV Times, I also write Coronation Street spoilers for WhattoWatch.com and write daily On Demand reviews.
