Emma Willis reprises Maternity Care Assistant role in second series for W.
The Queen of Big Brother is switching Borehamwood housemates for babies once more with UKTV channel W.
“Training at the Princess Alexandra Hospital was such an amazing experience, so I am absolutely delighted to be returning again this year! Training to be an MCA was a real eye opener so I can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for me over the coming weeks. I loved being part of so many wonderful memories for families last year, so it will be great to meet up with some of them and see how they’re getting on.” – Emma Willis
Emma Willis returns to the Princess Alexandra Hospital for a second series of Emma Willis: Delivering Babies on UKTV’s premium entertainment channel, W. The first series documented Emma’s training to be a Maternity Care Assistant (MCA), working ten hour shifts on the ward, cleaning beds and taking blood pressure. The UKTV Original was a stand-out hit for W and became the channel’s most-watched series of 2018, with almost a million people tuning into the premiere episode.
In the brand-new second eight-part-series Emma reprises her role in the maternity unit at the same hospital she spent three months training at last summer – this time as a fully-qualified Maternity Care Assistant. Emma will be on shift alongside her old team, ready to assist the hard-working staff as they help bring new life into the world. But now, it’s time to put everything she’s learned to the test, her days as a trainee are over.
In a separate one-off special, Meet the Babies, Emma will also visit some of the parents and babies she met during her training last year and together they’ll look back at the births.
“I am so happy to see Emma return to the Princess Alexandra hospital for a second series of this warm and inspiring series. Emma’s passion for her new role shines through in everything that she does, and we’re looking forward seeing what happens when she gets back on the wards, this time as a qualified Maternity Care Assistant.” – Helen Nightingale, senior commissioning editor, UKTV
