Holby City spoilers follow.
Holby City star Nic Jackman has revealed that there were five people (and a dummy) involved in filming Ange and Cameron's tense scene on Tuesday night (March 10).
The closing moments of the latest episode saw Nic's character Cameron drug and kidnap Ange, who had discovered his secrets and was planning to expose him.
Prior to the credits rolling, Cameron was seen dragging an unconscious Ange through a dilapidated part of the hospital – sparking fan confusion as to how they got around the social distancing measures.
Speaking to Digital Spy, Nic said: "There were five people and one dummy involved in filming that scene.
"Because of distancing and the restrictions with Covid, something that would normally be reasonably complicated becomes really complicated.
"The five people were me and Dawn, Dawn's husband – who had to wear a wig that replicated my hair for her to bite Cameron's arm – a stunt lady who was doubling Dawn, plus her real-life partner who was also wearing a wig to replicate me."
Nic added: "They did the dragging and the close proximity stuff and then I got to use the dummy.
"They all had someone to act opposite and I had to act opposite a dummy! It was fantastic but it just feels so weird filming while you are wrestling a dummy.
"When you are filming it, you are thinking 'this is nuts, how is this going to work?' but then you watch it and you wouldn't know the difference. The directors and producers all work their magic – it's testament to them."
Ange's fate is very much still a talking point in next week's episode, as Cameron continues to hold her hostage.
Discussing how far Cameron is prepared to go to silence Ange, Nic explained: "I don't think he intends to kill her – that was never part of his plan.
"It's all just to buy him some time because if they can't talk to her, then they can't come after him. He wants time to get away and that's his plan at the moment – to keep her quiet. He wants enough time to get out of that place."
Holby City continues on Tuesday, March 16 at 8.20pm on BBC One.
