Rosie Jones Confirms New TV Show After Casualty Exit

April 14, 2022

Rosie Jones will be back on screens very soon following her departure from Casualty.

The actress and comedian bowed out of the BBC medical drama earlier this month as popular character Paula Kettering in a gripping storyline that saw Paula agree to accept a helping hand in caring for baby Ena.

Jones won’t be away from screens for long, as she has now revealed that Channel 4 will be screening a pilot for comedy series Disability Benefits next month.

“So pleased I can finally shout about this. My sitcom pilot, ‘Disability Benefits’ is coming to Channel 4 on 6th May 🥳. I am super proud of it and so many brilliant people were involved in the making of it. I really hope you enjoy,” she wrote on Instagram.

This pilot could end up becoming a full series if the audience response is positive during this preview screening. Channel 4 recently announced Disability Benefits would be one of several projects it was working on with Jones.

The comic will be inviting more friends along for a second series of Trip Hazard: My Great British Adventure, where she visits some unusual holiday spots across the UK with celebrity mates.

The first series was filmed in the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, so hopefully it will be more fun for Jones and her friends this time around.

Also, Jones is set to present Dine Hard, where Jones and her pals share a few laughs while whipping up some of her favourite meals. Jones admittedly might not be a great cook, but the jokes should make up for it

Rounding out this group of Channel 4 commissions will be an important documentary about the ways disabled people face abuse in everyday situations.

This untitled film will share poignant stories as Jones meets with people who have experienced discrimination and then calls on her friends from the comedy world to help raise awareness of the issue.

We can’t wait to see even more of Rosie Jones on our tellies in the next few months!

Casualty airs on Saturdays on BBC One and streams on BBC iPlayer.
