Casualty spoilers follow.

Casualty fans have a little longer to wait for their weekly ED fix, as the show unfortunately isn't on tonight (May 22).

The popular medical drama won't be airing in its usual Saturday night slot as the grand final of the Eurovision Song Contest is being broadcast live on BBC One instead.

As we've previously explained, the soap is currently experiencing a number of scheduling changes through May.

Fans shouldn't worry too much, though, as Casualty will be back with not one, but two episodes next Saturday (May 29). The first edition will air at 8.50pm, with the second following straight after at 9.20pm.

This isn't the first time we've been treated to a double-whammy, as the show also aired twice earlier in the month as well – ensuring that viewers get exactly the same number of episodes as they would usually.

Next week's episodes will focus on Marty's ongoing story, as he has an explosive showdown with Ciaran over Bibi's quality of life.

Casualty will also be delving further into Fenisha's backstory through the use of flashbacks, as she gets a blast from the past.

Fans will be introduced to newcomer Matthew, played by Osi Okerafor, sparking the next big obstacle in Fenisha and Ethan's on-off romance.

You can get a full breakdown on next week's episodes here.

Casualty continues on Saturday, May 29 on BBC One.
