Viewers last saw Connie three years ago when she resigned from her position at the hospital.

As part of a new storyline, Connie will join the hospital's Casualty department as a "demanding but fair consultant".

Mealing admitted that she was surprised when she was first informed of the plan to bring Connie back.

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.

"I hope this will be as exciting for fans as it is for me. I can't wait to get those heels back on and get to work."
