Fans said a tearful goodbye to Sam Nicholls in the first episode of the new series after she was killed following an injury during a roadside explosion.
Actress Charlotte Salt joined the show in Series 26, she played the role of doctor for two series before a four year break and returning last year – but this time donning the paramedic gear.
Having re-joined the show as a new mum, Charlotte always planned for her return to not be long term and speaking with Digital Spy she told them the producers wanted a strong exit for her even if it did mean her sad demise. ‘They wanted to create a really lovely, dramatic exit for me to leave on and the opportunity arose when they planned this huge motorway pile-up.’
