Could it be possible that ROMANCE is blossoming between nurse Maeve Ludlow (played by Clelia Murphy) and GP Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan) on Doctors? (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings)

The medics have formed a close friendship since Maeve came to work at Sutton Vale.

Jimmi even helped convince stressed-out Maeve not to QUIT her job.

On yesterday's episode of the BBC daytime drama, Jimmi and Maeve had a great time together at the trampoline park.

Unfortunately, Jimmi is now limping in pain after all the physical activity!

Maeve decides to help the doc by giving Jimmi a massage in the treatment room.

The pair are accidentally interrupted by Daniel Granger (Matthew Chambers).

Daniel jumps to the conclusion that there's something going on between Jimmi and Maeve, leaving them both embarrassed!

But is Daniel right?

Could romance be brewing between Maeve and Jimmi?

Valerie Pitman (Sarah Moyle) steps up and offers to help.

But alarm bells start ringing for Ruhma... she's not entirely sure what kind of performance Valerie is going to put on for the trainees!

Will Ruhma be convinced to give Valerie a chance to step out from behind the reception desk... and become a mum-to-be in labour?
