The BBC announced: “After two series bringing law, order, and joy to the streets of Saint Marie, we’re sad to say goodbye to Ruby Patterson who made such a massive impact in such a short time!
“DS Madeleine Dumas will also be departing Saint Marie’s sunny shores and we would like to thank Shyko Amos and Aude Legastelois-Bidé for bringing Ruby and Madeleine to life and wish them all the very best for the future.”
Following her exit, Amos has not revealed why exactly she is leaving the show, but she did give an emotional goodbye to her character.
Posting in an emotional Instagram video, she said: “Thank you for giving Ruby a chance because at first you really didn’t. You were rough on me the first couple of episodes.
“I remember one of the articles, ‘Ruby slammed, she’s awful.’ My little heart almost broke I was like, ‘Oh my god, they hate me.’
“I read all the comments, ‘she’s so annoying,’ ‘she’s so boring,’ ‘I can’t stand her,’ ‘she’s really annoying.’
“And she probably was a bit annoying actually, I can see that. Thank you for getting behind her.”
