Casualty teases Connie Beauchamp arrival in new trailer - watch

By
A new Casualty trailer has been released promoting the upcoming arrival of Connie Beauchamp in the Emergency Department.

Amanda Mealing's popular character will join the BBC medical drama on March 29, kicking off a new era for the ED.

The new promo shows Connie hinting at trouble to come for the other characters as she warns that nobody will stand in the way of her ambitions.

Hit play below to see the trailer:


Mealing previously played the role of Connie on Casualty's sister show Holby City between 2004 and 2010.

Connie will now be joining the ED as a "demanding but fair" consultant.

Speaking last year, Mealing explained: "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."

Casualty's executive producer Oliver Kent added: "Connie's arrival in Casualty will really set the cat among the pigeons, not least with Ash and Zoe, who she will instantly upstage.

"I think what it will do is unlock a fun rivalry between Zoe and Connie. It will also put Ash in a very different place, and it will be the start of what we're seeing as Connie's year in the ED."

Casualty airs Connie's arrival on Saturday, March 29 at 9.20pm on BBC One.
