This week in Casualty Jacob reveals his secret pain, Iain turns violent and Gem is horrified by Rash’s unromantic actions…

Nurse Jacob Masters has turned into a loveable Dadzilla since discovering his best friend Elle Gardner’s teenage son is actually his boy too. Despite the initial shock Jacob and teenager Blake have now forged a close bond. So when Blake repeatedly avoids answering his phone Jacob begins to freak out a little…

Unknown to dad, Jacob, and mum, Elle, Blake has secretly contacted his paternal grandmother, Omo Masters, and is spending time with her. This week, however, his world comes crashing down when distressed Omo begins hearing voices and Blake needs a police escort to admit her to Holby ED.

Worlds collide as shocked Jacob tries to grasp the situation, Elle begins treating Omo, Blake withdraws, and Omo struggles with her illness. Later Jacob (Charles Venn) finally comes face-to-face with his mum, and it’s clear she’s terrified of her son, who’s heartbroken by her reaction to him.
