Casualty fans are in for an emotional rollercoaster as Connie Beauchamp endures a brutal attack.
Connie – played by Amanda Mealing – faces danger in tonight’s episode of the classic soap… and she may not survive.
The consultant gets on the wrong side of a few people, as she aggressively clears the wards of non-urgent patients.
Insisting on having staff remove patients in with alcohol and drug related problems, she even dismisses an old lady who’s in the hospital on her own.
She’s then forced to deal with the distraught daughter of a patient, Ernest, who died on the operating table.
The patient was a friend of hospital nurse, Louise.
Ernest’s daughter Lilley confronts Connie, believing she prioritised less-urgent patients ahead of her father.
Lilley promises to make Connie pay for letting her father die, but is she the one who attacks her?
As the episode comes to a close an unseen assailant pushes the doctor down the stairs – and keeps going after her.
As she lies on the ground, her assailant begins kicking her – and doesn’t let up.
So who is Connie’s mystery attacker? And will she survive the attack?
– Casualty airs on Saturdays at 9.10pm on BBC One
