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