Barney Walsh, 25, will be joining BBC staple Casualty following news that The Larkins, which he starred in alongside his The Chase presenter dad Bradley Walsh, has been axed after two series. It hasn’t taken him long to land a new role though, and he will soon be back on screens to portray accident-prone and perpetually terrified Cameron, who might question the job soon after arriving at Holby.

As well as Barney, Anna Chell, Sarah Seggari, and Eddie-Joe Robinson will also be joining the hospital drama as Jodie, Rida and Ryan.

Cameron is described as woefully lacking in self-confidence and a perpetually terrified fish out of water.

He soon realises he might have bitten off more than he can chew in his new job.

The Bay star Anna Chell will join the drama as quick-witted and outgoing Jodie, whose plans for a fresh start at the hospital are soon scuppered as she’s reacquainted with a figure from her past.

Trying to keep her personal and professional life separate will soon prove to be difficult for Jodie.

I Hate Suzie star Sarah Seggari will take on the role of straight-talking and confident Rida.

Rida doesn’t suffer fools and knows exactly what she wants, but will she be able to keep her walls up, or will this new challenge be the thing to finally unlock her softer side?

Lastly, Grantchester and Small Axe actor Eddie-Joe Robinson will depict ambitious and glory-hungry Ryan.

The character has always been known for his popularity, but he soon gets a wake-up call working in a busy ED.

The new characters will be making their debut on the popular show in April.

They will be accompanied by a familiar face who returns to the hospital to take on a new challenge as Holby’s fun-loving nurse, turned ward sister, Donna Jackson (played by Jaye Jacobs), will be seen again in the ED department.

On his casting, Barney remarked: “It’s been an incredible experience to join the cast of Casualty alongside Anna, Sarah, JJ and Eddie.

“It’s a real joy to come to work every day and play Cam. I can’t wait for the viewers to meet nurse Cam as he arrives at Holby and very quickly realises he might have bitten off more than he can chew!”

Anna Chell added: “It’s been an absolute buzz so far, the team at Casualty are so welcoming!

“Joining with the others has been such a beautiful experience, we have built up a great connection and friendship – filming scenes with those guys is always a laugh!

“Jodie is a joy to play. She is fun, flirty, and always up for a night out.

“Often pushing her emotions aside with a vodka tonic! Jodie is hard-faced, strong, and often lets her brain fall out of her mouth, but despite all this, she is great at her job and has quite a shock on her first shift!

“I’m so grateful to be bringing Jodie to life and I’m excited about what’s to come for her!”

Sarah Seggari stated: “It is an honour to play the first hijab-wearing Muslim nurse on Casualty.

“I cannot wait to show the viewers who Rida is, she is the strength and the mother in the group.

“She has no problem putting people in their place even if it might come across as a bit abrasive but will always stay loyal to her friends.

“At her core, she is a carer and wants to help, this is at the forefront every time she has a patient to work with, even if it sometimes isn’t to protocol. She has a fire behind her that I hope you enjoy!”

Eddie-Joe added: “Joining Casualty has been such a fantastic experience.

“Straight away I’ve felt like a part of the family, and coming in alongside JJ, Sarah, Anna, and Barney has made it all the more special. From Ryan, you can expect a lot of fun and banter with his fellow nurses, which he sometimes takes a bit too far…

“He’s self-assured to the point of cocky, and when this combines with his ambitious nature it can definitely place him in hot water. “Beneath the bravado, there’s a softer side to him though, and I like to think he’s often a little misunderstood!”

Casualty continues on Saturday at 9.25pm on BBC One.
