EastEnders viewers want Nancy Carter to return as Casualty confirms Maddy Hill departure

Ruby's Casualty exit airs on Saturday!

EastEnders viewers want Nancy Carter to return to Albert Square as Casualty confirms actress Maddy Hill is leaving the show.

Back in 2016, Mick and Linda’s daughter Nancy, who was played by Maddy, left Walford in order to travel the world.

Meanwhile, Maddy went on to explore new roles and eventually joined the cast of Casualty as Ruby Spark in 2018.

Recently, Casualty confirmed that Ruby will be leaving the show in Saturday’s episode (Saturday, April 18) as she quits her job at the hospital in order to raise her niece.

But EastEnders fans are hoping this means Maddy will be returning to her role as Nancy.

In a Digital Spy forum, one fan wrote: “With the news from DS that Maddy Hill is leaving Casualty, could this mean a return for Nancy in EastEnders?

“The Carters could do with a younger family member back, it felt that Callum was their replacement but now he’s in with the Mitchells and also has Stuart.”

One fan responded saying: “Hopefully and hopefully another return for Lee as well.”

A second added: “Nancy, yes please. Lee, no thanks.”

A third said: “Yes please.”

After the tragic death of her sister Violette, Ruby took custody of Violette’s daughter Harmony. However, she struggled to balance work with raising a child and made the decision to hand the baby over to her parents.

But soon has a change of heart when she learns her parents plan to relocate to Portugal.

Ruby gets a much-needed confidence boost over her parenting abilities from her boss Jan, and realises she wants a future with Harmony.

After rushing to the airport to collect the baby, she announces her plan to quit her job as a paramedic and start fresh somewhere new.
