On today's episode of the BBC daytime drama, Zara spends some quality time with Izzie at home, while Daniel takes his son, Joe, out to the cinema for the evening.

The ladies enjoy a nice pamper session doing cleansing face masks.

But Zara finds herself in an awkward situation when Izzie opens up and admits that her older boyfriend, Lee Blackwell, wants them to have sex...

Izzie is not sure what to do about the situation.

WHAT advice will Zara give Izzie?
