Spoilers: Max’s past comes back to bite her in Holby City

Tonight’s Holby City sees Max (Jo Martin) desperately trying to hold the hospital’s finances together as resources are stretched to the limit by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

We’ve seen her previously paying for PPE and agency staff from her own funds, but how long can she keep the hospital afloat with her own money?

Meanwhile, she’s extremely put out to meet new mental health nurse Lucky Simpson (Vineeta Rishi), because Max and Lucky have history together. And it looks like they’re not going to be best friends any time soon as tensions escalate and Max’s son Louis (Tyler Luke Cunningham) gets involved.

On Darwin, Jac (Rosie Marcel)’s patient and old friend from the psych unit, Clayton (Robert Lonsdale), is still deteriorating and Jac is running out of ideas about how to help him. Kian (Ramin Karimloo) drafts in some assistance to try and help – but will Jac really welcome the assistance of the three new F1s?

And what are her real feelings about Clayton? Kian is concerned about how personal the case is for her and what it means for his relationship with Jac.

Meanwhile, Kian is still dependent on those little white pills he keeps secretly taking – but tonight he’s caught in the act. Will he be able to talk his way out of it?

Lucky Simpson finds plenty of work for herself, as it seems that almost every staff member is struggling with one personal trauma or another. But who will be glad of a listening ear?

Ange (Dawn Steele) isn’t pleased to find out that Chloe (Amy Lennox) and Cameron (Nic Jackman) have apparently got back together, after going out for a drink in last week’s episode.

Her opinion of Cameron is low anyway, after the way he’s treated her daughter previously and some of his behaviour on the wards. And when Nicky (Belinda Owusu) assumes that she and Cameron are still a couple, Cameron finds himself in a tight spot.

Sacha (Bob Barrett)’s new relationship with Jodie (Sian Reese-Williams) is the source of a lot of hospital gossip – but it seems that when it comes to gossip, Jodie can give as good as she gets and one person in particular is not happy.

Donna (Jaye Jacobs) is flustered to discover that Xavier’s brother Alex (Miles Mitchell) is joining the hospital permanently as a HCA.

There’s an attraction between the two of them, but how long can Donna pretend to herself that there isn’t?
