Sunetra Sarker has confessed she's finding it difficult to juggle her filming for 'Casualty' with commitments to 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Sunetra Sarker is struggling to juggle filming 'Casualty' with her 'Strictly Come Dancing' commitments.

The 44-year-old actress has been working on both shows since it was announced that she would be joining Caroline Flack, Scott Mills, Pixie Lott and 'MasterChef' judge Gregg Wallace on the BBC One celebrity dance contest and she's revealed it's a lot tougher than people may think.

Talking to BANG Showbiz, Sunetra revealed: "Learning the medical words is hard enough, but then learning steps to try and keep it in another part of my memory has been hard ... I found it really hard actually ... using a different part of my brain."

After the BBC decided in 2011 to move the 'Casualty' set from Bristol to Cardiff, the actress - who plays Dr Zoe Hanna on the medical drama - admitted that commuting from Wales to her home in Bristol and then to London to film 'Strictly' has taken its toll and even joked about getting a job on 'Casualty's' sister show 'Holby City', which is filmed at Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire.

Sunetra shared: "Cardiff, Bristol where I live and London. So there's a lot of trains and planes and driving. Maybe I should go on sabbatical to 'Holby' and then I'll be nearby."
