Scarlett Kiernan (played by Kia Pegg) hopes some of her recent money troubles are behind her on Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Scarlett has moved in with surgery co-worker, Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson) and her husband, Rob (Chris Walker), following the departure of her dad, Brian, from Letherbridge.

But on today's episode of the BBC daytime drama, Scarlett finds herself in a tricky situation when her former landlady, Mrs Brightwater (Kerry Washington), turns up at The Mill.

Mrs Brightwater wants the unpaid rent money that Scarlett and Brian owe, after doing a runner from the rented house.

And she's not leaving until she gets it!

Scarlett's co-worker, Kirsty Millar (Kiruna Stamell), tries to cover and lies that she is not around.

However, Mrs Brightwater is not to be fooled and lies in wait for Scarlett outside the surgery...

Will Scarlett get caught and have to hand over the rent money?
