Essie Harrison has al­ways done her best to jug­gle her job as trans­plant co­or­di­na­tor at Holby with be­ing fos­ter mum to teen Parker Whit­field. But, this week, it could all change!

Kim, Parker’s mum, has just been re­leased from prison and Essie waits ner­vously for her to ar­rive at the hos­pi­tal to spend the day with Parker.

Shock

‘When Essie took on Parker, it was a big shock for her to sud­denly have this very dif­fer­ent life, but I al­ways knew she’d be a great mum,’ says Kaye Wragg, who plays her.

Essie’s keen for mother and son to bond, but then Kim re­veals she’s mov­ing to Gi­bral­tar to be with her par­ents. Essie can’t be­lieve Kim’s go­ing to pass up the op­por­tu­nity to re­build her re­la­tion­ship with Parker – that’s when Kim drops the bomb­shell that she in­tends to take him to Gi­bral­tar with her!

Strug­gling with the idea that she could lose Parker, Essie throws her­self into her work. She’s soon dealt an­other blow when she learns her role as trans­plant co­or­di­na­tor has been axed, leav­ing her fu­ture un­cer­tain.

Later, Parker’s ad­mit­ted with stom­ach pains but Kim re­alises he’s fak­ing it so he can stay in Holby. Essie ad­mits to boyfriend Raf that she’s not ready to let the teen go. Will she have to say good­bye?
