UKTV has announced that The Voice UK host Emma Willis will return for a second series of Emma Willis: Delivering Babies on W.
The first series saw Willis train for three months as a Maternity Care Assistant (MCA) by working ten-hour shifts, cleaning beds and taking patients' blood pressure.
No longer a trainee, the presenter will return to the Princess Alexandra Hospital for the project’s second season, ready to help the NHS staff there bring new life into the world.
She will also visit some of the parents and babies she met during training for a one-off special, Emma Willis: Meet the Babies, and look back at last year’s births.
“Training at the Princess Alexandra Hospital was such an amazing experience, so I am absolutely delighted to be returning again this year,” said Willis.
“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.”
Commissioning editor Helen Nightingale added that she is “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 to seeing what happens when she gets back on the wards, this time as a qualified Maternal Care Assistant.”
Emma Willis: Delivering Babies airs on W later this year.
