Meanwhile, Fletch (played by Alex Walkinshaw) and Jacobs character Donna, recently hit a bump in the road when it comes to their friendship.

Speaking about the show and their characters relationship, Alex commented: “What they went through, it’s a difficult one to come back from.

“I think what we saw was the initial heated response, the real immediate reaction.

“We did the battle, but I think, Donna being Donna and Fletch being Fletch, I think they’ve got maturity and understanding that when the dust settles, they’ll go away and just be able to… without any words they’re just working side by side again.

"I don’t think they’ll be running off into the sunset together, mind,” he remarked.

The finale of the show will centre around the story of Jac Naylor (played by Rosie Marcel) as her brain tumour battle reaches a final conclusion.

Six former cast members are expected to make a return for the last outing of the medical series.
