Love was certainly in the air recently at Holby with two couples all set to tie the knot. But the course of true love never runs smooth and, this week, it looks like neither couple will be saying ‘I do’.
Last week, medic Dominic Copeland and his partner, nurse Ben ‘Lofty’ Chiltern (Lee Mead), were all set to get wed then jet off to Hawaii on honeymoon. But then Lofty feared they were rushing things and called time on their nuptials.
Unsure of how to address the issue, Dom spends all day trying to avoid Lofty up on Keller. Desperate for them to reunite, however, Dom puts on a very public display of affection – but Lofty’s left mortified and flees the ward!
Meanwhile, Serena Campbell’s nephew and Holby porter Jason Haynes – who has Asperger’s – and his girlfriend Greta are forced to put their big day on hold when their registrar Lexy Morrell is impaled by a piece of stained glass window in a freak accident and is unable to officiate the ceremony.
Dom doesn’t have a clue how to patch things up with Lofty and, hoping for inspiration, he quizzes Greta on why she’s so keen to marry Jason. Greta makes Dom realise life is better when you have someone to share it with…
With the clock ticking, will Jason and Greta be able to have the wedding of their dreams? And can Dom convince Lofty that he wants to spend the rest of his life with him?
Elsewhere, with Mo’s support can Nicky prove her worth to Jac? And will Serena and Bernie be forced to realise that, if you love someone, you should set them free?
Holby City continues on Tuesdays at 8pm on BBC1.
