Holby City SPOILERS: Essie diagnosed with cancer as Sacha proposes

Essie gets some devastating news

In this week's Holby City, Sacha plans to pop the question, but Essie is shocked when she learns her cancer has returned.

It was hinted in Holby City's spring trailer that Sacha is going to propose to Essie and his plan comes as soon as this week.

With Essie's ex-boyfriend Ben gone and the Isla situation seemingly sorted, it seems like it's the perfect time to pop the question to Essie.

Sacha soon lets Dom in on his secret but swears him to secrecy.

After spending the last few weeks at each other's throats, Dom realises he doesn't want to see Essie celebrate her engagement without him.

He swallows his pride and wants to put the past behind them; meanwhile Sacha encourages Essie to do the same.

As they both accept their wrongdoings, they agree to bury the hatchet and move forward.

However, it's not long before Essie is hit with some devastating news.
