Holby City star Phoebe Thomas has announced that she is quitting the show to pursue new projects.

The 26-year-old actress has played nurse Maria Kendall on the BBC One medical drama since late 2006.

Reflecting on her time with the programme, Thomas commented: "I've loved every minute, it's a fantastic show to be on. The cast are wonderful and you get to work with some fantastic directors.

"The executive producer has really taken the show in a great direction, but I think you do have to move on eventually."

The role of Maria has been Thomas's most high-profile part, however she has also appeared in Teachers, Family Affairs and The Bill.

Thomas's character will remain on screen in Holby City until the summer. Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
