Actress Jemma Redgrave left HOLBY CITY this week to appear in theatre this Autumn.
It is as yet unconfirmed by the BBC if she will be returning to her role of Bernie as fans still hope for an onscreen reunion between her character and Serena Campbell – as actress Catherine Russell has also taken sabbatical from the show but has herself promised to be making a comeback.
The ‘Berena’ relationship has taken on unprecedented popularity on the medical drama – the actors even appeared at this year’s ComicCon which is a first for the show.
Bernie left Holby to visit Serena in the vineyards of France as well as return to her army roots to work in a refugee camp in Sudan.
But for now fans wait in hopeful anticipation that it’s not quite the end. #KeeptheFaith
Look back on some of Bernie’s moments…
