Spoiler Alert: Connie’s daughter diagnosed in BBC Casualty twist

BBC One’s Casualty’s Dr Connie Beauchamp’s daughter, Grace, had a seizure in a recent episode.

Grace has been the centre of a big storyline ever since her head injury in the drama’s 30th anniversary episode. This left her with diagnosed brain damage and was close to death.

In a recent episode, Grace had a tonic clonic seizure shown to millions of viewers. She had the seizure during a medical tribunal between her mother, Connie and Dr Elle Gardner – the lead consultant on the day of Grace’s accident.

Head injuries can be a cause of epilepsy and can be diagnosed some time after the injury occurred.

This was the first time epilepsy was featured in Casualty since November 2016, where the show followed a 15-year-old teenager who had a tonic clonic seizure on his way to seeing his girlfriend.
