As Cameron Dunn's Holby City demise fast approaches, actor Nic Jackman has teased a final twist left in the tale.

Sitting down with Digital Spy for an exclusive chat, the soap star was asked if Nicky McKendrick could end up being his character's downfall in next week's scenes.

"She could," he began. "It's complicated with Nicky. She's carrying his child but Cameron is so selfish. If he has to do something to save himself, he will. She's not really on his mind and he plays her.

"He completely manipulates her but she does eventually have a moment where she sees him for what he really is."

Elaborating on Nicky's revelation, Jackman added: "There is a real turning point for Nicky, something happens to really sever the ties between her and Cameron. Belinda [Owusu] plays it fantastically.

"Cameron is powerless for the first time ever – he can't do anything. It's brilliant."

Meanwhile, the actor also weighed in on whether he believes Cameron is truly evil or just unwell.

"I think about this a lot and it's hard, it's a really hard question," he said. "I don't honestly know. When you are playing it, you've got to find something human about it and something that justifies his actions.

"I think perhaps he is unwell. Even at the very end, there is something quite chilling about what he does. In his final scenes you really see that there is a monster in there, something really evil. It's almost like he is still calculating his next move.

"I didn't even really know I was playing that. It's weird. I was drawn in as a viewer."

Holby City continues on Tuesday, March 23 at 7.50pm on BBC One.
