Those watching Casualty on Saturday night were stunned to see a familiar face pop up in one of the hospital scenes. The episode of the BBC medical soap, which aired on March 18, saw the A&E department thrown into a frenzy as the staff struggled to keep up with the pressures of seeing to every patient.One of these patients was Elsie, and people on social media were quick to realise that they'd seen her before as a much-loved character from the cobbles of Coronation Street.
