Although the show has no current plans to bring her back, actress Rebecca has stated she is up for it.

“I absolutely loved working on Casualty. I’d love to go back. Who knows, you never know. Gem’s not dead yet,” she told her followers.

As well as a return to the drama, she also expressed an interest in two reality TV faves.

“I love Strictly,” she said. “It’s like my all-time favourite and I’d love to learn all the dances and wear all the costumes and the make-up.

“And yeah. I’d be quite intrigued to do the jungle.”

Could we see her lining up on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing or I’m A Celeb…Get Me Out Of Here!?

Gem was always supposed to leave and meet up with Rash on his travels, but stuck around after Iain struggled with his mental health.

However, Iain soon urged her to put herself first for once and even paid for her ticket to Thailand to join Rash.
