Holby City's Ollie Valentine looks set to return before the soap finally draws to a close. James Anderson will be re-entering the BBC soap soon, though it is currently unclear exactly when he'll be back.

BBC designer Simon Ekrelius appeared to reveal the news in a since-deleted Instagram post (via Metro), where he posted a picture of Anderson with co-star Guy Henry (Henrik Hanssen).

"That's a wrap for ep 37/38," he captioned the picture, explaining they were shooting a Christmas episode. "It's been a long journey and the last day for James."

Anderson, who exited in 2018, isn't the only former Holby star to return to the fold of late, with Rosie Marcel (Jac Naylor) and Jemma Redgrave (Bernie Wolfe) both coming back.

The news comes after it was confirmed earlier this year that Holby City would be ending in 2022 after 23 years on air.
