Casualty boss Loretta Preece has teased a big twist in the Faith, Lev and Dylan story.

The show will officially return to screens in the New Year, after nearly four months off air due to coronavirus pandemic production delays.

Speaking exclusively to Digital Spy, Casualty boss Loretta Preece offered fans a glimpse of what's in store for the ongoing Faith, Lev and Dylan drama, and has promised "lots of twists" to come.

In July, Lev was seen cheating on his wife Faith with a man, but Faith was reluctant to believe Dylan when he told her what he'd seen.

Upon the show's return, it will initially appear as though not a lot has changed on the surface, but it might not remain that way for long.

"Faith didn't believe Dylan when he told her that he saw her husband kissing a man but when we see her again, she's had some time to dwell on that and to wonder why Dylan would say such a thing," Loretta said.

"Lev is on a journey in the new series but so are Faith and consequently Dylan. There are lots of twists in this story to come."

On the episode time jump, Loretta added: "The time jump was our biggest challenge when returning to filming and our first episodes are set in the summer and the autumn of 2020.

"This allowed us to cover the first wave of the pandemic but also to continue some of the fantastic stories that we were in the middle of telling such as Fenisha's pregnancy, Lev's big secret and Connie and Jacob's passion for one another."

Casualty returns on Saturday, January 2 at 7.35pm on BBC One.
