Viewers have been concerned that she won’t make it through, after the show teased the death of a regular character this spring.

However, are we focusing our attention on the wrong person?

Some fans are worried it’s actually Cal who we’ll be saying goodbye to.

Could it prove to be a heat of the moment blow-up that results in life-changing consequences for everyone concerned?

Last week, viewers hearts were in their mouths as Gemma ran over Dr Lily after she was exposed for sharing the illicit pictures of Alicia.

Prior to her being ‘favourite’ to lose her life, fans were convinced it was Robyn, after she gave birth in an isolated graveyard.

The teaser is certainly doing the trick and keeping us all on tenterhooks.

Meanwhile, the serial drama has revealed it will be airing a special episode filmed in a single take.

Filmed in real time, it will be a fly-on-the-wall look at daily life in the emergency department.

The ambitious episode will be at the end of the 30th series to celebrate the anniversary of the monumental run.

Called ‘One’, it will focus on nurse Duffy as she shows two teenage girls, Chloe and Diamond, who are on work experience around the hospital. It’s set to show the highs and lows of the running of the ED.

Although it won’t be shown to viewers live, a single camera will follow Duffy around and keep running throughout, meaning it’s as close to live as you can get without actually being live, and there is no room for error.

We’ll even see them attempt to move into an ambulance seamlessly, and there’s set to be 360 degree shots involved, with sound coming from 40 hidden radio microphones.

Cathy Shipton plays Duffy and she’s spoken about how excited she is to lead this very special episode.

“It’s so exciting and nerve-wracking to be working on this episode and unlike anything any of us cast or crew have ever attempted.

“It’s a brilliant fly-on-the-wall episode in real time, placing nurses central in the storyline. It will become a classic Casualty.”

Series producer Erika Hossington said: “This special episode will give the audience a unique insight into an hour in A&E. It will be an intense, emotional hour in which staff and patients are faced with life-changing events.

The team will face their toughest production challenge

“We want to reflect the front line in its unedited, rawest form, and this one shot episode, with a brilliant script from Casualty creator Paul Unwin, has given us the opportunity to do that.”

The show had previously ruled out a completely live show due to the constraints of not being able to do a traditional Casualty stunt.

But with cast and crew all keen to do something a bit different, the producers promised something special.
