All Ethan wants from Santa is to wake up next to Alicia, but the course of true love never did run smooth. The poor doc has to put up with her relentless online dating tips instead, as Alicia swans round the ED with Cal. But the lovable medic is getting braver, and it might not be long before he declares his feelings… you can do it, Ethan!

Meanwhile, Dylan and Seb’s storyline takes an unexpected turn that you won’t want to miss. Elsewhere, Duffy spreads a rumour that Charlie is a swinger, Cal gets a fracture when a woman falls into his arms from a balcony (classic Casualty!) and Connie makes herself (even more) popular by cancelling Christmas.

Just give in to it, folks, silly season has arrived!
