West End star Lee Mead makes a special guest appearance in this week’s Casualty!
Lee Mead became a household name when he won Andrew Lloyd Webber’s talent show Any Dream Will Do and went on to star in the West End show Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat.
This week the popular singer, who is married to Denise Van Outen, turns his hand to TV acting – for the first time ever!
Lee stars in this week’s dramatic episode of Casualty as Harry, a timid teaching assistant starting work at Holby’s run-down school, Farmead Academy.
When Harry witnesses experienced teacher Emma (Pooky Quesnel) slapping troubled student Lee in an impulsive moment, he’s faced with a moral dilemma with life-changing consequences…
Emma begs Harry to cover for her, as she doesn’t want to lose her job. Initially Lee supports Emma but later at the emergency department, Harry finally supports Lee.
Meanwhile, two new nurses join the team. Scarlett (Madeleine Mantock) and Lloyd (Hotel Babylon’s Michael Obiora) start their first shift in the ED.
Charlie launches into his spiel about the importance of caring, as he welcomes Scarlett and Lloyd to Holby ED. Lloyd is confident and gets off to a racing start – saving the life of his first patient in resus. But Scarlett is nervous and seems convinced that her skills lie more in flirting with consultants than in patient care!
