Full Casualty spoilers below…

Dylan Keogh delivers Paula’s baby

Dylan Keogh has been worried sick about pregnant Paula Kettering since she disappeared following social services' decision to remove her baby at birth.

In Casualty this week Dylan (William Beck) is preparing to finish his shift when he overhears paramedic Jan Jenning (Di Botcher) get a call regarding a 31-year-old woman with cerebral palsy in labour and refusing assistance.

Dylan and Jan race to Paula’s aide and help her deliver a healthy baby girl. But due to the difficult birth they are anxious to get mum and baby to hospital urgently - even though it could mean Paula losing custody of her daughter.

Dylan and Jan attempt to reassure Paula (Rosie Jones), who is understandably frightened of the consequences of being admitted to the ED. But the decision is taken out of her hands when she loses consciousness…

Adi's upsetting update

While the team are treating Paula, David Hide (Jason Durr) calls Adi Kapadia from social services, who has been assigned to Paula’s case. 

Later, Dylan runs into a flustered Adi (Raj Bajaj) outside the ED where he sticks up for Paula and gently suggests that he takes his time in processing her paperwork. Adi, however, has shocking news - they’re fast-tracking Paula’s hearing.

Back in the ED, Paula soaks up every minute with her daughter, who she names Ena after her grandmother. Her happiness is shattered however when Dylan breaks the shocking news that social services plan to speed up her case. 

And more distressing news follows when Adi arrives and reveals that the judge is holding a hearing that afternoon, leaving Paula distraught.

Robyn legs it to the loos to do a pregnancy test. But before the result is ready she’s called away to a red alert emergency.

Later, when things have calmed down, Paige Allcott (Shalisha James-Davis) finds a pregnancy test on the floor. Robyn discovers a hole in her pocket and twigs that it must be hers!
