CASUALTY have won ‘Best Soap & Continuing Drama’ category at this year’s BAFTA awards.
Some of the cast collected the award streaming online from the Set in Cardiff, where Will Beck also gave a heartfelt speech. Their award comes after a year of diverse storylines including the coronavirus episode, which saw popular receptionist Noel killed off.
CASUALTY, who won the award back in 2018, beat competition from Eastenders, Coronation Street and Hollyoaks.
The show has been confirmed to be staying on air, after sister show HOLBY CITY was cruelly axed last week despite uproar amongst fans.

@BBCCasualty was created to reflect the reality of the NHS. Both it’s strength and the pressures on it. The recent #COVID episode was a triumphant demonstration of the show’s purpose. I – and I know #jeremyBrock – are incredibly proud. @BAFTA
