Scarlett Kiernan (played by Kia Pegg) gets behind the steering wheel for her first driving lesson with Rob Hollins (Chris Walker) on Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Scarlett started building a connection with Rob, when she moved in with the policeman and his late wife, Karen, when her dad, Brian, moved away from Letherbridge earlier this year.

But Scarlett quickly gets frustrated during the lesson.

The surgery receptionist can't get her head around the gears and the pedals.

But she's even further distracted when she receives a phone call from Brian, which she chooses to ignore.

Struggling to get to grips with everything, Scarlett later storms off...

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.
