Former Emmerdale actress Gemma Oaten, will be reprising her role of Sydney Somers in Holby City once again. Gemma has been playing Sydney on and off as a recurring guest character appearing in 3 episodes since 2017.

Gemma took to Twitter to announce her return: “Guess who’s back filming in @BBCHolbyCity in 2 weeks! Delighted! Love playing Sydney Somers. Always a joy to return. As many have seen before, she causes quite a stir, especially with Fletch, but who knows who Sydney will make a beeline for, when she returns as a bridesmaid! 😉”
