Shyko left the show ahead of season ten

After leaving the show in 2019, Shyko thanked her fans via her YouTube channel, saying: "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.’ And she probably was a bit annoying actually, I can see that. Thank you for getting behind her.” 

The BBC also released a statement that read: "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!”
