When did Jac Naylor first appear in Holby City?

Jac made her first appearance in 2005.

Fiercely competitive and ruthless Jac became romantically involved with Jospeh Byrne because she wanted to cosy up to his influential father, Lord Byrne.

She later slept with Lord Byrne and tried to blackmail him into securing her consultancy position.

Other key Jac storylines include being at the centre of a murder investigation, feuds with Sahira and Faye, and an emotional pregnancy story.

The medical maestro is also no stranger to gunmen in Holby – in 2017 Jac, Raf and Ollie came under fire in a siege.

It’s been quite a ride for Jac in Holby City!

Why did Jac Naylor have a breakdown?

Back in 2019, Jac’s vulnerable side came out.

She had to perform life-saving surgery on Elliott, but her anxiety got the better of her.

Feeling the pressure – and desperately wanting to see her daughter – she eventually lost control and let her emotions out in scenes viewers found “painful to watch”.
