Bear Sylvester (played by Dex Lee) has got little sympathy for nurse Cathy Jenkins (guest star Laura Bayston) on Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Temporary surgery nurse Cathy has been complaining about a hostile working environment at The Mill.

Some of the surgery staff seem to be giving her the cold shoulder treatment after the way she behaved towards business manager Bear and his mum, Makeda at St Phil's Hospital last year.

Cathy complains to Bear that she is still being judged over something that happened in the past that she is regretful about.

What happened to Bear and Makeda at St Phil's was unprofessional, but Cathy claims she was having a "bad day" and that Makeda was being "difficult".

But Cathy's feeble attempt to justify her racist attitudes is too little, too late for Bear.

After Bear gives Cathy some harsh home truths about her attitude and behaviour, will she finally get the message?

Maeve reveals she may have accidentally invited the other couple along.

Jimmi goes along with the plan.

But he may regret letting Karen and Rob gatecrash the date, when Maeve and Karen start gossiping about how Jimmi's previous relationships haven't worked out.

Uh-oh...

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.
