In August, 2021, Jac (portrayed by Rosie Marcel) dropped a bombshell on her colleague Henrik Hanssen (Guy Henry) when she announced she had been diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Since then, the Holby City character has vowed to put up a fight against her illness, determined to save the hospital she was called back to from the special measures that were put into place.
But in a new episode of the medical drama due to air next week (Tuesday, January 18, 2022 at 7:50pm), Jac will receive more terrible news about her health.
In this emotional episode airing on BBC One, she will learn from Eli and Max that, despite the operation she underwent, her tumour is progressing at a worrying rapid rate, making her terminal.
