Another said: “Travesties of television. Jac Naylor being written out of #HolbyCity in a manner that suggested she was simply nipping to the corner shop or something.”

A third put: “Jac’s last episode was awful, I’m gonna be sick #HolbyCity.”

Holby City isn’t worth watching without Jac Naylor.

A fourth wrote: “If Jac is really leaving, I might be done with #HolbyCity.”

“Definitely,” someone else agreed.

A sixth tweeted: “Holby City isn’t worth watching without Jac Naylor, the [bleep] #holbycity.”

However, others praised the episode, with some calling it “beautiful”.

One wrote on Twitter: “So Rosie Marcel leaving @BBCHolbyCity as Jac Naylor may have upset me more than the never-ending lockdown we’re in.”

A second said: “Just caught up with @BBCHolbyCity, loved the episode, Jac leaving on her own terms was beautiful to watch.”

“I’m going to miss Jac so much,” said another, adding: “I hope she comes back one day, she was one of the best characters on the show! #HolbyCity @BBCOne.”

Viewers were sure she was going to die by getting shot, but luckily she survived.

And it was the last straw for Jac, particularly as she also knew Kian Madani (Ramin Karimloo) was using drugs again. So she decided to get herself out of there and leave the hospital.
