Lauren Drummond also joined the cast of Holby City in 2010 as the loveable, big hearted but sometimes naive, Chantelle Lane. Over the years Chantelle has floated care free through the wards of the hospital with her perfect smile, and hairstyles to match.

However, recently fans have seen the nurse faking the smile that usually comes so naturally, whilst dealing with the aftermath of a violent mugging – an ordeal that’s also left her indecisive about her feelings towards her love-struck colleague – junior doctor Arthur Digby.

Lauren Drummond, who films her last scenes with Holby this month said: “This job has exceeded all my expectations and it has been an absolute joy to be a part of creatively and personally. The cast and crew are one of a kind!”
