Nicole’s been hiding from her violent husband, Sean, ever since he found out he’s not the father of their baby. Cara knows the real father is in fact her own husband, Jed, an undercover cop who’s trying to arrest Sean. When she hears Jed’s abandoned Nicole and baby Tom in their hour of need, Cara knows she must protect them – especially when Sean turns up at Holby!

But Nicole has some harsh home truths for Cara, leaving her in no doubt that her husband is no better than Sean. Realising Jed’s not the man she married, Cara ignores Jeds pleas and decides their marriage is well and truly over…
