Meanwhile, teenager Amy Gilson (Ellie Bindman, who has appeared in episodes of Casualty and Grantchester) has come to The Mill to get some travel vaccinations.

Amy has just turned 18 and today her passport has arrived.

This means she can now legally follow her dream and go and live with her boyfriend, Gary in Goa.

However, Amy's mum, Michelle (Julia Riley) and her stepdad, Dean (Kevin Murphy) aren't too happy about the situation.

Dean blames himself for introducing his former work colleage, Gary, to his stepdaughter.

Plus, Gary is 20 years older than Amy.

What advice will temporary nurse, Cathy Jenkins (Laura Bayston), offer when Dean downloads about the family drama to her?

* Watch out for the return of Cathy Jenkins in this episode.

She is the same hospital nuse who Bear Sylvester (Dex Lee) confronted last year about her racist treatment of his mum, Makeda...

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.
