Tonight (August 11) viewers saw the end of Essie Di Lucca, as she sadly passed away on her way to her wedding ceremony.

Essie Harrison first graced our screens in 2014 as a relative to a patient, before returning on a permanent basis in 2015 as a staff nurse on Keller ward. Essie got married to general surgeon Raf Di Lucca, in 2017 until his death later in the same year.

In early 2020, the show decided to revisit her previous storyline of cancer. To mark the end of Essie, the producers of Holby City brought back her deceased husband Raf to mark her exit from the show.
