We’ve already told you that Holby City Paramedic Iain Dean (Michael Stevenson (opens in new tab)) gets lucky in this Saturday’s (opens in new tab) Casualty, but now we can reveal it’s with staff nurse Rita Freeman!

Emotions are running high after last week’s terror attack on Holby hospital. And when you add paramedic Jeff’s anniversary drinks into the mix, it makes for some uncharacteristic behaviour among the Holby staff…

Exhibit A: Reserved Doctor Lily Chao (Crystal Yu (opens in new tab)) decides she’s going to get drunk as a lord. She even ventures into (really bad) joke telling territory!

Exhibit B: Iain propositions Rita at the bar, and asks her if she wants to hook up for a one night stand… And, as our picture above reveals, she says yes!

Is this a one-time thing? Will it lead to heartache? Or, with Zoe and Max on the verge of divorce, will the paramedic and nurse end up becoming Casualty’s new favourite couple?
