Kate Connor is to get a big birthday surprise in the coming weeks when Aidan and Carla arrange for her soldier fiancé Caz to pay a visit.
As Caz pulls up in a taxi, Kate offers up a hug and says that she’s the best birthday present she could have wished for.
Later in the week, though, Kate will be seen admitting to Michelle that – although she loves Caz – their relationship can be very intense because they spend so little time together.
And when Caz then suggests an April wedding, all the eyes of the family are on Kate. Will she agree to the proposition?
Newcomer Caz is being played by Rhea Bailey, the younger sister of singer Corrine Bailey Rae. The actress, who has spent the last four years living in Los Angeles, said recently: “Too much sun isn’t good for ya. Really excited to be swapping my surfboard for a brolly, and joining the cast on the nation’s favourite show!”
