Kirsty Millar (played by Kiruna Stamell) has got trouble on the homefront on Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

The Mill's new receptionist is trying to focus on the job.

But her husband, Rich (Richard Atwill), has been pressuring her to help deal with their teenage son, Ollie (Isaac Benn), who has been having a meltdown over plans for him to join the army.

On today's episode of the BBC daytime drama, the situation with Ollie is resolved and his parents wave him off to his new life with the army.

However, things are not good between Kirsty and Rich, and she makes it clear that she wants him to pack his stuff and be out of the house by the time she returns home from work!

But it appears that Rich has other ideas.

He still wants to be with Kirsty, and when she arrives home from work, he's still there.

WHAT will Kirsty do?

Scarlett is left with no choice but to swallow her pride and ask surgery boss, Zara Carmichael (Elisabeth Dermot Walsh) for an advance on her wages.

Simon has long been a fan of soap operas, and especially loves OVER-THE-TOP plots involving evil twins, hair-pulling catfights and natural disasters.

Anyone remember the Sunset Beach earthquake/tidal wave?

Or when Krystle Carrington got locked in the attic and replaced by look-a-like Rita in Dynasty?!


Simon has written for a variety of TV and childrens’ magazines/websites including Inside Soap, Nickelodeon, What’s On TV, Radio Times, Metro, Girl Talk, Disney Girl, Toxic! and Digital Spy.

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.


Simon is also co-author of The Treasures Of Coronation Street (Carlton Books)


And the writer and director of (very!) low budget fright flick, Midsummer Night's EVIL and the sequel webisodes series, The Hatchet Woods HORROR.
