Ruhma Carter (played by Bharti Patel) is afraid for Kirsty Millar's (Kiruna Stamell) safety on today's episode of Doctors (1:45pm - see our TV Guide for listings)...

Kirsty confides in midwife Ruhma that she and her husband, Rich (Richard Atwill), are separating.

But the trouble is, Rich doesn't seem to have got the message.

He was supposed to be going to stay with a mate but somehow he's still living under the same roof as Kirsty.

Rich tries to ask Kirsty out to the cinema but she refuses.

Ruhma is alarmed when she notices a bruise on Kirsty's arm and jumps to the conclusion that Kirsty and Rich's troubled marriage may have taken an abusive turn...

Is Ruhma right?

After Scarlett's collapse at the Campus Surgery, everyone has been fussing around her.

Scarlett is fed-up with everyone interfering and eventually breaks down in tears to Karen Hollins (Jan Pearson)...

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.

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.
