Jacob Masters & Connie Beauchamp are splitsville.
This came at a time when Connie's daughter, Grace, is going through rigorous rehabilitation after suffering a devastating car crash last year where lunatic patient, Steph Sims, drove Connie's sports car off a cliff to many feet below. Furthermore, Connie has reported Grace's doctor, Elle Gardner, to the National Health Service board for negligence during treatment administered by Dr. Gardner immediately after the accident. Jacob subsequently ended his relationship with the Casualty & Holby City favourite, Connie un tonight's episode entitled 'Back To School' as he is close friends with Elle and would rather support her through the investigation than aid Connie & ultimately Grace in their time of need.
Fans of the popular pair took to twitter to vent their frustration over the split.
Lauren doesn't know what all the fuss is about and thinks "Queens deserve better" - fair enough, Lauren.

As I publicised this very article you're reading on my twitter feed, Paige told me off for apparently fathoming how emotionally stressful this situation is.
You're right, Paige, I had no idea and sincerely apologise for making this blatantly anguishing turn of events even more traumatic.
