The team won the award for their special coronavirus episode in which receptionist Noel tragically died.

CASUALTY were up against Eastenders, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and soon to be axed HOLBY CITY.

Broadcast Awards revealed it’s decision saying: “Under the shadow of an unprecedented pandemic, CASUALTY stepped up it’s game to explore the reality of working on the NHS frontline against an unknown and unpredictable adversary.

‘The grim reality of handling case after case of COVID-19 was effectively told in a way that connected with both the core audience and casual viewer. Our judges praised the ‘raw portrayal’ and the way the soap navigated COVID production restrictions – ‘the work that went into it is evident,’ said one.’

The episode was directed by Steve Hughes and written by Kevin Rundle.
