Mealing back in hospital Casualty

Amanda Mealing is returning to her medical drama role, but this time in Casualty

Amanda Mealing is set to end up back in hospital - joining Casualty after her Holby City exit.

The actress played Connie Beauchamp in Holby City for seven years and is now set to change departments, and programmes, to Casualty, said The Sun.

Amanda, 46, left her surgeon alter ego in 2010 when the character resigned from the hospital, but now the fan favourite will continue her story in the hospital sister show.

She said: "When the idea was first proposed I was surprised to say the least. Then when I heard some of the ideas for the character, I thought it was genius.

"Two years on and I have daily calls for Connie Beauchamp's return so I hope this will be as exciting for fans as it is for me.

"I've worked with the guys at Casualty a number of times over the years and absolutely adore them. I honestly can't wait to get those heels back on and get to work."

Amanda has appeared in Casualty a few times with crossovers between the two shows. Her new role sees Connie as a "demanding but fair consultant".

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
