Patsy Kensit and Luke Roberts will reprise their roles as Faye Morton and Joseph Byrne in BBC One's Holby City for one episode as part of the programme's 20th anniversary celebrations.
Last seen on the Holby wards almost ten years ago, Faye and Joseph return to the hospital under dramatic circumstances and come face to face with Jac - Faye's nemesis and ex love rival. The turbulent history between the three of them doesn't bode well when certain events mean they need to come together as life hangs in the balance.
Patsy Kensit says: "It's a great honour to be asked back. As soon as I got the script I sat down and read it as fast as I could, which shows what a gripping episode it's going to be. Faye has changed quite a lot, it's very feisty and there are lots of surprises! It's also really exciting to be working with Rosie and Luke again; we always had a fantastic time together on set and that's not changed at all."
Luke Roberts says: "Actors take jobs for a number of reasons. Pay the bills, learn the craft, further the career, tackle a challenging role. Holby City ticked all of those boxes when I had the good fortune to join the cast in 2005. For five years it provided me with a much needed community of artists and technicians who always made me feel at home. It really was like a family. So it's been an absolute joy to slip back into the surgical scrubs, see so many familiar faces and reconnect with the likes of Rosie Marcel, Patsy Kensit, Jaye Jacobs, Bob Barrett, Guy Henry, Hugh Quarshie, Belinda Owusu and Alex Walkinshaw to name but a few of the mega talented folks working on the wards. Not to mention our brilliant director David Innes-Edwards who has the colossal task of keeping us all in line!"
