It’s Josh (Trieve Blackwood-Cambridge)’s birthday in tonight’s Holby City. Birthdays mean presents, balloons, parties and cake, which is all supposed to be a treat for the birthday boy. The problem for Josh, as we saw last week, is that he’s struggling with an eating disorder.
Josh’s bulimia has been fairly under control since he was a child, but recently the stresses of his job and worrying about Ange (Dawn Steele) and their new twins has made him resort to old ways to cope with difficult emotions.
Josh is trying his hardest to be strong for Ange and the twins, so he feels she’s the last person he can confide in. Is there anyone else he can talk to?
Lucky (Vineeta Rishi) is desperate to end her own life, but she needs someone else to help her. With Max (Jo Martin) refusing to even contemplate the idea, Lucky resorts to tricking an innocent staff member to help her instead. But as Lucky remembers conversations she had with a former patient who was facing the same situation she’s in now, will she regret her actions?
Meanwhile Kylie (Amy Murphy) and Louis (Tyler Luke Cunningham)’s relationship is going well and he’s invited her to dinner with his mum. Is Max ready to welcome Kylie into her family?
As Oliver Valentine (James Anderson) works his way through the test that Hanssen (Guy Henry) has set him, he wonders why the case seems too obvious. Is Hanssen trying to trick him?
Russ Faber (Simon Slater), Hanssen’s former colleague and the man who brought Ollie back to Holby, decides to go and talk to Hanssen about Ollie’s test. He tracks him down to a store cupboard where Hanssen is searching for lightbulbs, and before long they find themselves locked in. It’s an opportunity for some heart-to-heart discussions – and to discover yet more surprising things about Hanssen.
And Madge (Clare Burt) comes to Ollie with an unusual request. Can the man who’s just returned to Holby following a brain injury step up to cover for Hanssen on his first day back?
