The BBC soap was sadly cancelled last week after the government issued new guidelines to slow the spread of coronavirus. Amanda Mealing, who plays the great Connie Beauchamp in Casualty, revealed last week that the show had been cancelled but said that it would be back tonight, the star has now also hinted at a big Casualty/Holby City crossover in the near future.
Casualty fans were ecstatic when Connie Beauchamp returned to the BBC show earlier this year after her character developed a drug habit.
However, she wasn’t welcomed by all after Charlie Fairhead (Derek Thompson) issued his friend with an ultimatum that resulted in her to leave the hospital in the first place.
Fans were left devastated last week, however, as Amanda Mealing took to the Casualty Twitter page to announce that the show had been cancelled.
She said: “Unlike the true heroes of the NHS, we at Holby City Hospital are only pretending, and due to the situation at the moment, unfortunately, Holby City Hospital will be closed this weekend. There will be no Casualty.”

Amanda has now revealed that there could be a surprise in store for fans though, as she hints at a big cross-over.
Amanda told BAFTA: “I’ve just been filming scenes with Jo Martin, who plays Holby City Hospital’s CEO Max McGerry.
“As well as a recent version of Doctor Who. I am scheduled to go ‘upstairs’ to the Holby wards soon so, yes, you will see a few crossovers happening.”
Connie left the show for five months last year but Amanda has promised that “the b**** is back”.
She explained: “Connie is returning in many ways. She is back.
“The b**** is back. We wanted to reset her after a few years of heartache and tragedy.
“Now we will start to see the sass and the wicked one-liners.
“I can’t say what we have coming up just that she will do it will style and panache,” she added, so fans will certainly be looking forward to the show returning.

When it does eventually return, viewers will certainly be interested to see how Charlie is doing after continuing to struggle in the aftermath of Lisa “Duffy” Duffin (Cathy Shipton) tragic death.
His work will start to slip as he fails to keep his concentration raising concerns especially from Jacob Masters (Charles Venn).
However, when Charlie starts to spend more time making beds than carrying out his hospital responsibilities, Jacob will try and convince him to take time off.
Viewers will remember that when Duffy died, Charlie relied on work to take his mind off his heartbreak, so taking time off probably isn’t his priority.

Charlie will insist he is fine, but later on, it will become clear that Charlie might be a danger to patients and himself.
Viewers will also be interested to see whether Connie will be the one to give Charlie the help he needs and if he will accept it.
As Connie’s behaviour continued to spiral last year, Charlie said enough was enough and confronted her.
Charlie was forced to dismiss her from the hospital until she could get control of her addiction.
Lost and defeated, Connie hung her head in shame and gave up the fight in a final confrontation against Charlie, but will she be able to help him in his time of need?
Casualty is set to continue on BBC One tonight at 9pm.
