Bear Sylvester (played by Dex Lee) returns to work after a lovely holiday visiting his mum, Makeda in France on Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

But the surgery business manager is shocked and appalled when he discovers nurse Cathy Jenkins (Laura Bayston) is temporarily working at The Mill...

Viewers of the BBC daytime drama will remember that Nurse Jenkins was particularly unpleasant towards Bear's mum Makeda at St Phil's Hospital last year.

The nurse treated Makeda with a racist attitude when she was referred to the hospital for a medical procedure.

After her experience with the nasty nurse, Makeda refused to be treated by her and later collapsed and went into a coma...

WHAT will Bear do about Nurse Jenkins?
