Viewers were left shocked by recent episodes of the show when Jacob made the difficult decision to leave the ED as he was unable to cope or move forward in the wake of Robyn's death.

Previously, Jacob was blamed for Robyn's death by his colleagues. Jacob had encouraged Robyn to stay behind and work another shift even though she was already exhausted.

He then had a row with Robyn just before she died in a tragic car accident, which former colleague Marty reminded him of.

So, those are the events that have led to Jacob deciding to leave the ED but it remains to be seen whether or not this is a permanent or temporary exit from the show for Venn.

However, Amanda Henderson who played Robyn is leaving the show permanently, given her character has been killed off. She recently opened up about exiting Casualty, too. In an Instagram post, Henderson posted a decorated clapper-board celebrating her tenure on the soap. In the caption, she wrote: "10 years of you Robyn! It's been a pleasure."

Casualty airs on Saturdays on BBC One and streams on BBC iPlayer.
