Casualty fans gobsmacked as they spot Waterloo Road teacher on BBC medical drama

Casualty fans were aghast as they spotted a Waterloo Road star in Saturday's episode.

William Ash played former Deputy Head and science teacher Christopher Mead on Waterloo Road years ago.

Viewers went into complete meltdown on Twitter as they recognised the actor years after he starred in the BBC drama set in a comprehensive school.

Ash starred in Waterloo Road from 2009 until 2011, and fans quickly notice him on Casualty a decade later.

One said: "William Ash in Casualty. How I miss Chris Mead".

While another wrote: "Will Ash who played Chris mead in Waterloo road is on this episode, yess", with a heart emoji.

"MR MEAD", penned a third viewer.

Another remarked: "It's the guy from Waterloo Road".

The actor was part of a heartbreaking storyline tonight as the BBC show highlighted domestic abuse cases taking place during lockdown.

He played a character named Kevin who had been violent towards his partner Linda while they stayed at home during the pandemic.
