Princess Buchanan (played by Laura White) is reeling from the SHOCK news about Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson) on today's episode of Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

But the disgraced trainee GP is about to be taken to task for her all her unprofessional and bad behaviour...

While the rest of the surgery staff are still trying to process the news about Karen, the surgery receptionist is in an emotional state while she remains in hospital after her collapse at The Mill.

Jimmi Clay (Adrian Lewis Morgan) gives Karen some welcome emotional support during a visit to her hospital bedside.

But after Jimmi leaves, Karen is in for a surprise when she gets an UNEXPECTED visit from Princess!

To Karen's surprise, Princess seems genuinely remorseful about their confrontation at the surgery which then led to Karen's collapse.

With Princess showing a rare vulnerable and remorseful side, Karen takes the opportunity to have an honest talk with her about her behaviour.

Will this be a FINAL wake-up call for Princess, who has spent months manipulating her co-workers so she can get ahead?

When she arrives home, Josie becomes worried about Eben's shivery and feverish state.

At The Mill, Daniel checks Eben's temperature and discovers it is far too high...
