CASUALTY hunk Simon MacCorkindale last night mocked sister show Holby City by saying: “You’ll never be as good as us.”
Simon, 53, who plays dishy doc Harry Harper, claimed plans by BBC executives to replace Casualty with the newer arrival had backfired
Simon said; “There’s a healthy rivalry, but they are our sister show.
“Casualty has been on the air some 20 years.
“Six years ago they created Holby to take over, but Casualty never went and Holby hasn’t yet been able to catch it.
“The rivalry’s very much off screen
“There’s always a bit of ‘us and them’ because we shoot In different locations.
“Casualty knows it’s in its rightful place as the number one.”
