Casualty star Amanda Mealing has confirmed when her finals scenes as Connie Beauchamp's will air.

Amanda responded to a tweet from a viewer, who asked her when Connie's final episode will air, asking: "@ Amanda Mealing please tell us when Connie's last episode is so I know when to prepare myself."

"I think it's April 3rd. No Casualty tonight," Amanda wrote when she replied last Saturday, as the show wasn't on due to the Six Nations rugby.

The BBC has also confirmed to Digital Spy that Amanda's last episode as Connie will air on April 3.

Casualty only recently confirmed Amanda's exit, and Deborah Sathe, senior head of content production for the soap and Holby City, said that she would be missed on set.

"We are going to miss Amanda playing chief of the ED Connie," Deborah said.

"Connie has led the ED, her team, and our Casualty audience through COVID. The quest to restore Casualty to our screens was not an easy one, and we owe a huge debt to Amanda and the whole team for delivering some of the most extraordinary episodes Casualty has ever broadcast.

"We look forward to welcoming Connie back onto our screens in due course."

Amanda made the decision to take an extended break from her role as Connie, after joining Casualty seven years ago.

Before moving over to Casualty, the Emergency Department's clinical lead was part of Casualty's sister show Holby City.

Connie is making her personal life a priority for the first time as her daughter Grace has recently returned – marking a new chapter in her life.

Reflecting on her time at Casualty, Amanda wrote on Twitter: "Au revoir...for now. After 7 fantastic years at ⁦@BBCCasualty I shall miss my family there.

"Thank you for your endless love and indefatigable support."

Casualty continues on Saturday, March 27 on BBC One.
