I had this fault on my c class previously, under warranty so resolved by AD. Very dangerous to drive without ESP, I would strongly urge you to send in the car immediately for checks. If not C&C, check the site sponsors.
Info- ESP stands for Electronic Stability Program. The name says it all - ESP stabilizes
the car. Should your car threaten to go into a spin, the system jumps into action
almost as if an invisible hand took over to put your car back on track safe and sound.
Like the Antilock Braking System (ABS) ESP helps to stabilize a car even in extreme situations.
ESP's secret is an intelligent on-board computer that constantly extends its "feelers" or
sensors. Whenever the danger of a spin is detected, it reacts by selectively braking
the front and/or rear wheels and reducing or increasing engine torque. In a split second,
much faster than a professional race-car driver could react, ESP keeps the E-Class on course.
The Electronic Stability Program provides an additional element of safety in crucial
situations and significantly reduces the danger of skidding in turns

That's great news, no $$$ damage is best!
If done by C&C can try asking for courtesy car.
