It was reported earlier this month that Holby City has been forced to take another extended break as the drama ran out of new episodes. 

The BBC One show took a break back in April and returned on 2 June in order to ensure fans were still able to get their fix of their favourite soap over the summer.

The last episode aired on Tuesday 11th August before it went off air.

Upon its return, the coronavirus pandemic is set to be a major theme for the show, with BBC Studios' Head of Continuing Drama Kate Oates promising that it will be a "battle" for Maxine McGerry (Jo Martin) and her staff.

"It's with great pleasure that we open the doors at Elstree, to welcome back the exceptional cast and crew of Holby City," she said as the series resumed shooting.

"We have some compelling stories to tell as we explore how the lives of our characters have been changed since the start of the pandemic – and how our heroes battle against the odds, come what may."
