The Spirit of Christmas: Red Button special
Casualty has an extra-special early Christmas present for fans this year - an exclusive Red Button episode straight after the episode on Saturday 14th December.
The mini episode will catch-up with Big Mac and Noel the morning after a few festive drinks. Noel is convinced he’s seen a live reindeer in the lounge, while Big Mac thinks he’s spotted an elf in the bathroom.
As they come together to search for the intruders, the pair soon discover their lack of sleep and bleary eyes have been playing tricks on them.
Standing freshening herself up in the bathroom is Santa’s grotto helper, Ania who crashed over at the boys’ flat after they came to her aid.
As Ania leaves to return to her grotto everything appears to go back to normal. Or does it…?
“Big Mac and Noel know how to party - and the Christmas period gives them even more of an excuse," said Casualty's executive producer Oliver Kent. "This exclusive Red Button episode gives an insight in to just what happens the morning after the night before, but with a festive twist. Convinced they’ve seen one of Santa’s helpers and a reindeer in their flat, they soon turn anxious detectives as they try and find out just who is in their bathroom and why.”
Starring Charles Dale and Tony Marshall, The Morning After can be seen via the red button at around 9.55pm on Saturday, 14th December. It will also be available on the BBC iPlayer.
Lee Mead to join Casualty!
Exciting news! Casualty is to welcome Lee Mead to the cast.
Star of the stage Lee will play Lofty, a likeable and popular nurse with a less than ordinary background. This will be Lee’s first full time on screen role, having made his debut as a guest star on the show back in 2011.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Casualty. I really enjoyed my guest appearance in 2011, but this will be a completely different challenge,” commented Lee. “When I first read about the character Lofty I didn’t imagine I would be in the frame to play him. I am hoping he will charm audiences and they will get behind him. I can’t wait to get started and to learn all of the medical jargon!"
You’ll be able to catch Lee on screen for the first time in early 2014.
“As the character Lofty was being developed, we couldn’t think of anyone else to better to play him,” executive producer Oliver Kent added. “We can’t wait to start filming and are thrilled to have Lee join the team. With a very different background to most of the other nurses, his clumsy charm is sure to win everyone over.”
Jamie Davis (Footballers' Wives) will also join the cast later this year as Max, a cool, laid back porter.

Brotherly Love?George Rainsford (Call the Midwife) and Richard Winsor (Streetdance 3D) are set to join Casualty early next year as Doctor’s Ethan and Caleb.
Despite the pair being brothers, they're polar opposite characters. Ethan is a studious witty whizz kid, while Caleb is a pure adrenaline junkie.
“The arrival of Ethan and Caleb will instantly change the dynamic of the ED," revealed Casualty's Executive Producer, Oliver Kent. "Whilst very different characters, one thing they will have in common is an ability to charm, so expect sparks to fly! We can’t wait to start filming and are thrilled to have George and Richard join the team.”
George and Richard will begin filming at BBC Wales’ Roath Lock Studios later this year.
