Casualty to go off air in new scheduling changesBBC

Casualty fans looking forward to the next episode are going to have to wait, as the medical drama won't be airing next week.

You've probably already worked out why, but in case you weren't aware: BBC One is airing the live final of The Eurovision Song Contest 2023.

Hosted in Liverpool, this year's contest will see Mae Muller try and nab a win for the United Kingdom with her well-received entry 'I Wrote a Song', but she is facing strong competition from returning Swedish winner Loreen, and popular songs from Ukraine, Spain and Finland, among others.

Last year's UK entry Sam Ryder will be a guest performer at the show, while other special performances will pay tribute to Liverpool's musical contributions to the world, and Ukranian culture (since the country is unable to host this year despite their victory, due to the Russian invasion).

The BBC are celebrating Eurovision with some special EastEnders episodes, as the residents of Albert Square get ready to party, with Bucks Fizz's own Cheryl Baker making an appearance (and also, presumably, her mind up).

We've got some pictures from Baker's cameo, and yes, there are wigs and skirts involved.

Meanwhile, tonight's instalment of Casualty saw Donna get strict with the new team of nurses, who had to deal with an unprecedented situation, as it was discovered that a patient in the emergency department had grenades in his possession.

The hospital had to be evacuated, with treatment tents put up outside so the patients could still get the help they required.

It was quite the explosive episode (literally) and you can catch up on it now via BBC iPlayer.

Casualty airs on Saturdays (when Eurovision isn't on) on BBC One and streams on BBC iPlayer.
