One Born Every Minute returns to Bristol Southmead Hospital for sixth series


Click to follow

One Born Every Minute returns tonight after just a few months since the last series finished.

Series six continues in the same hospital following expectant parents in Bristol’s Southmead maternity unit, the busiest in the West Country.

Tonight’s first episode sees the unlikely occurrence of fourth generation twins making an appearance on the delivery suite.

Mother Mel, 35, is an identical twin, as was her father and grandmother, and never thought she would fall pregnant with twins.

But that’s exactly what happened, and she is now faced with choosing whether her soul-mate twin sister or father of her baby should accompany her into theatre.

The new series also features same-sex couple Marion and Rachel, who “shopped online” to find the father of their baby-to-be.

Using Marion’s eggs they based their decision on which donor had the most similar attributed to Rachel, who ended up getting pregnant with twins.

The midwives continue to play a key role in the new series, with blonde-haired Sacha particularly excited about Emma Bunton’s celebrity arrival on the delivery suite.

Baby Spice makes an appearance to support the maternity unit’s charity, but all Sacha can think about is meeting her idol and bringing in her old Spice Girl memorabilia to get signed.

One Born Every Minute starts Wednesday 11 June at 9pm on Channel 4
