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?"

Casualty boss Lucy Raffety told Digital Spy back in September that Elle and Jacob had a huge story coming up that would change their friendship forever.

"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.
