Following a short break while the Commonwealth Games screened, BBC’s long-running medical drama Casualty returns to our screens with a bang – especially for troubled nurse Rita Freeman!

But it’s not all doom and gloom. Jeff’s romance with wealthy Samantha is going great guns and the paramedic is on cloud nine when we catch up with him on Saturday, following another hot date with his event planner girlfriend.

After many loveless years, Jeff, played by Matt Bardock, feels he’s hit the jackpot with Samantha (Michelle Collins), and she doesn’t even have a problem with Jeff’s marriage-of-convenience to his lesbian paramedic pal Dixie! But while Jeff’s past is an open book, the loved-up medic doesn’t know too much about his new love interest.

Is Jeff falling hard and fast for a woman with dark secrets? Watch Casualty on Saturday, August 9 on BBC1 to find out…
