SERIES 29, EPISODE 12 - LOSING GRIP
We've been spoiled with plenty of Lofty in recent episodes, but with Lee at the bottom of the cast list, we were expecting rather less of him in this one - and we weren't wrong! He wasn't involved in any of the patient storylines but got roped into kiddie daycare for Connie's daughter and joined Cal, Max and an 'out of his comfort zone' Ethan on a lads' night out, culminating in an unexpectedly short-lived visit to a strip club!
Synopsis: After one drink too many Cal, hospital porter Max and nurse Lofty persuade reluctant Ethan to go to a strip club with them. An uncomfortable Ethan wanders into the club only to spot a familiar face - Honey on stage... pole dancing! Has Ethan and Honey's budding relationship been upstaged by her secret stripper night job?
Elsewhere, OAP have-a-go hero Gloria Pots winds up in the ED after attacking what seems to be a violent robber in a jewellery shop where she was shopping. Will Gloria (guest star Gwyneth Powell) reveal her embarrassing secret before she becomes seriously ill?
Clinical lead Connie is forced to take her troublesome daughter Grace to work when she's expelled from school. Chaos on the wards soon ensues! Meanwhile, Ash has developed a dangerous God delusion since surviving the crash that killed paramedic Jeff. Will his colleagues realise what's going on before he endangers the lives of patients?
The full episode will be available to watch on BBC iPlayer until Monday 29 December, and there are also screencaps for you to enjoy. Finally, with my ever grateful thanks to the anonymous editor and my apologies to those of the cast who have hit the cutting room floor, here's the 'Meady bits' edit!
Details of all Lee's episodes can be found at CASUALTY INDEX.
