Suzanne Packer is to reprise her role as Tess Bateman on Casualty for a two-part Christmas special.

Suzanne Packer is to make a guest return to Casualty as nurse Tess Bateman for a two-part special this Christmas.

In the storyline, Charlie (Derek Thompson) is left shocked to find Tess on his doorstep with the announcement that she is returning to the emergency department to work as a locum over the festive period.

"I was so delighted to be asked back to Casualty for a couple of episodes," said Packer, who starred on the show between 2003 and 2015. "It was an absolute joy to work with the team again, especially Derek!

"Most of my scenes were with him, add that to a wonderful script by Barbara Machin and to work alongside Holly Aird, it was a dream return. I couldn't have asked for anything more."

The first of the festive episodes airs Saturday, December 4 on BBC One.
