Scarlett Kiernan (played by Kia Pegg) has had quite enough of being pushed around by Princess Buchanan (Laura White) on Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

Lazy trainee GP, Princess has been using receptionist Scarlett to help ease her workload at The Mill.

Scarlett has threatened to report Princess for her unprofessional behaviour.

But unfortunately, it appears scheming Princess has made a discovery of her own that she is now using to BLACKMAIL Scarlett with!

On today's episode of the BBC daytime drama, Princess continues to enjoy having the upper hand, and orders Scarlett to go and get her lunch.

Scarlett realises she has no choice.

But enough is enough, and Scarlett has decided the time has come to fight back!

So when Scarlett returns to the surgery with Princess's lunch order, she accidentally spills lemonade all over the troublesome trainee's nice outfit.

Whoops!

Will Princess start to get the message not to mess with Scarlett?

Cathy Jenkins (Laura Bayston) is not proving to be popular at The Mill.

Word has got around about nurse Cathy's racist attitude towards Bear Sylvester's (Dex Lee) mum, Makeda, at St Phil's Hospital.

Cathy tries to be friendly but it seems nobody wants to be too social with the resident racist!

Ruhma Carter (Bharti Patel) finds Cathy crying outside on the patio.

Cathy complains about her treatment by the other surgery staff, and reckons she can't carry on working under such hostile conditions.

Will Cathy QUIT the job?
