Holby City star Amanda Mealing has revealed that fans will soon see a more "vulnerable" side to her feisty alter ego Connie Beauchamp.

Speaking in an interview with DS, Mealing explained that forthcoming scenes will explore Connie's past and see her become the victim of a physical attack.

The actress teased: "A little bit of her past returns to the hospital which she's keen to get rid of. She doesn't want everyone to know her roots. We start to see a little bit of vulnerability about her.

"I've just been filming a fight scene from which I have massive bruises on my neck! Let's just say that Connie finds herself in a situation where she's attacked - we've not seen her vulnerable side much, so it's great to play."

Mealing added that she wants Connie to become embroiled in more skirmishes at Holby General because she enjoyed filming the dramatic scenes.

She said: "[I'd like to see] a hostage situation at the hospital - a lockdown situation or something! Now I've done my fight scene, I'm up for doing more action scenes!"

Holby City reaches its 500th episode next week. The instalment, titled 'Bette Davis Eyes' airs on Tuesday at 8pm.
