Who is Esther Fulls?

Esther is a 45-year-old nurse from Sheffield.

She was born with a severe birthmark caused by tangled blood vessels, which continued to grow over the years.

Although Esther struggled as a child due to constant trips to the hospital, her fond memories of playful and positive nurses gave her the career ambition of becoming a nurse from the age of eight.

What is a Severe Birthmark?

The condition is extremely rare and is called Arteriovenous Malformation.

For Esther, it started from birth and gradually worsened as she entered adulthood.

A disruption of normal blood flow and oxygen circulation causes arteries and veins to weaken or rupture, resulting in the severe birthmark malformation.

It more commonly occurs on the brain or spine, which can often result in critical health risk.

Although they enjoyed each others company there wasn’t a romantic spark.

Esther the first one to push the “friend” term out there and we are likely to see her on more dates throughout series 10.
