Scarlett Kiernan (played by Kia Pegg) is still on probation at The Mill on Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings).

So the receptionist certainly doesn't need any more trouble coming her way, that could jeopardise her job!

Unfortunately, that's exactly what she gets on today's episode of the BBC daytime drama...

Gemma Porter (Abii Strudwicke) arrives at Sutton Vale for an appointment with GP, Sid Vere (Ashley Rice).

Gemma recognises Scarlett from old times.

After her appointment with Sid, Gemma is worried that Scarlett will somehow discover she has been diagnosed with an STI.

Getting an STI from someone who isn't her current boyfriend is not something Gemma wants becoming public knowledge.

Gemma wants to check out the medical records of the other fella, Matt Hawthorn (James Mateo-Salt).

So she threatens Scarlett into letting her have access to the CONFIDENTIAL information!

When Sid catches Scarlett and Gemma arguing outside the surgery, Gemma makes a SHOCK accusation against Scarlett that could get her sacked...

Valerie Pitman (Sarah Moyle) remains shaken-up after the burglary.

She tries to put on a brave face and keep busy with work.

However, the situation isn't helped by her well-meaning colleagues asking her about what happened.

It all gets a bit much and Valerie seeks help from Bear Sylvster (Dex Lee).

Valerie realises she's not ready to be alone at home yet, and plans to move into a hotel.

But Bear has an unexpected idea and invites Valerie to temporarily come and stay with him and housemate, Sid Vere (Ashley Rice).

What will Valerie make of Bear and Sid's lad pad?

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.
