Holby City star Rosie Marcel has offered up a behind the scenes look at how the cast and crew are managing to adhere to social distancing guidelines on set.
The actor, who plays consultant cardiothoracic surgeon Jac Naylor on the BBC medical drama, took to Instagram on Wednesday, August 26 to share a photo of herself and co-star Bob Barrett sitting far away from one another.
In the picture, Barrett, who brings general surgery consultant Sacha Levy to life, is perched on a pop-up chair on one side of the Darwin Wardroom, while Marcel brushes up on her lines on the other side. Judging by the pair’s big grins though, they don’t mind the new restrictions all that much.
“This is the way we go to work. Go to work. Go to work. This is the way we go to work. All-day long,” she wrote alongside the snap, referencing the nursery rhyme ‘This Is The Way We Brush Our Teeth’.
“A picture that fills me full of joy … distanced or not!!!!” one enthusiastic fan replied, as another said: “Yeah so glad your filming ❤️❤️ you work well together 💋.”
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Holby City had been forced to take another extended break, having resumed filming in July, due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Consequently, the soap actually ran out of new episodes to broadcast and has been off-air as a result since Tuesday, August 11.
Now that they’re back in the swing of things though, we can’t imagine it’ll be too long before the hospital gang will grace the small screen once more.
