HOLBY City fans were left in tears as Dom discovered his mum Carole has dementia as she collapsed.
Carole was diagnosed with rapidly progressing vascular dementia last week in the BBC One soap.

However, after learning about Dom’s terrible car accident and life-changing injuries, Carole decided not to burden her son with the awful news.
Last night saw Dom preparing for his big night at Jeni’s fundraiser.
Carole arrived to try and support her son but, when she became overwhelmed by everything, she told Dom she needed to leave.
Dom realised something was wrong and demanded to know what was going on.
“I’m sorry Dominic, but I’ve got vascular dementia,” Carole revealed.
I didn’t want to tell you, especially not like this”
But Dom was in denial and said: “What. No, that’s not possible.”
Carole replied: “I didn’t want to tell you, especially not like this.”
Dom was left reeling and was in for another shock when Ange told Dom she’s pregnant.

Despite the chaos, Dom managed to deliver a heartfelt speech at the fundraiser, dedicating it to Carole.
But afterwards, Carole’s health took a turn for the worse and she collapsed.
Carole was taken into the hospital for emergency surgery and viewers later saw Dom promising Carole he’d be there for her from now on.
