Casualty star Jaye Griffiths has teased Elle Gardner's jaw-dropping secret – admitting that she's known about it since joining the show last year.
Saturday night's dramatic episode will see Elle drop a huge bombshell on her friend and colleague Jacob Masters, in a story twist that has been 18-months in the making.
When asked how long she's known about Elle's secret, Jaye said to What's On TV: "Oh, a long time. I've known since I joined Casualty in 2016, which I love.
"It's been fantastic. I just had to keep my mouth shut! Both Charles and I knew, we just didn't talk about it because sometimes storylines change. It's something that I thought, it will either happen or it won't. And then it did!"
Speaking about the repercussions for Elle and Jacob afterwards, Jaye added: "The friendship between Elle and Jacob is broken. There's a lot of pain.
"Also, Elle and Jacob work closely in an intense day job where, if they make a mistake, they could kill someone! How will they do that?"
"Something massive happens with Elle and Jacob which totally redefines their friendship," she said. "That is a wonderful story and I'm really excited about it."
Casualty will reveal Elle's big secret on Saturday, December 9 at 9.20pm on BBC One.
