Connie Beauchamp’s return to Holby City Hospital in tonight’s Casualty was action-packed, especially when she climbed up some lighting rigging to rescue an unconscious man!

But spare a thought for Amanda Mealing, who plays the new consultant, and got hands dirty for the role: “I did my own stunts in the first episode. That’s all me up there…

“It was quite terrifying at points, but it’s a great introduction. I loved it and hope I get to do more. In Casualty you have explosions and car crashes, so there’s always a heightened tension. It’s very exciting!”



The moment Connie put her skyscraper heels down in the emergency department, it meant bad news for clinical lead Zoe Hanna. But fantastic news for Casualty fans.
