Last week’s Holby City left Ric Griffin (Hugh Quarshie) under anaesthetic, waiting for Max (Jo Martin) to return from an emergency to operate on his brain. And we saw Guy Self (John Michie), a little worse for drink, making his way to the theatre after he and Ric had had a massive row at Guy’s disciplinary hearing.

The action picks back up tonight as Selfie swaggers into the operating theatre. ‘It’s yours truly, back from the dead to save the patron saint of Holby City,’ he announces to the theatre team – which would give anyone a clue about his attitude towards the patient.

But is he planning to do Ric harm, or does he really want to save his life and prove himself to Max?

As Louis (Tyler Luke Cunningham) is assisting on the operation he assumes that Guy is the on-call surgeon who’s been sent for, but he soon realises that there’s something not quite right about Guy Self.

As Louis becomes increasingly anxious, it seems that Selfie is out of his depth and Ric is deteriorating fast. Is this the end of Ric Griffin?

Sacha (Bob Barrett) is still avoiding Essie (Kaye Wragg) after messing up so badly when he asked Frankie to stay away from Essie and Isla.

Meanwhile, Essie confides in Fletch (Alex Walkinshaw) about her fears for the baby if Frankie isn’t found. Fletch realises that Sacha and Essie really need each other and persuades Sacha to talk to her – and then Essie makes a surprise decision.

She wants the wedding to be brought forward so she and Sacha can get married that very day. The whole staff team get involved with organising a same-day wedding. Can they give Sacha and Essie a day to remember?

Cameron (Nic Jackman) and Nicky (Belinda Owusu) slept together last week and in the aftermath of that it seems she’s hoping for a real, romantic relationship between the two of them. Cameron, however, has his sights on someone else. Will Nicky realise how manipulative Cameron can be?
