'This Is Going To Hurt' fans stunned to spot author Adam Kay make blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameo

'This is Going To Hurt' fans were excited to see Adam come face to face with his fictional self last night.

Eagle-eyed This Is Going To Hurt fans were thrilled to spot show creator Adam Kay make a very brief but also very exciting cameo appearance in episode four. 

The episode, which aired on BBC1 last night (Monday, Feb. 28) was met with more rave reviews from viewers, who have been glued to the medical drama which not only covers important and hard-hitting topics but also has a dose of dark humor running throughout. 

Creator Adam Kay adapted his multi-million-copy bestselling book of the same name for the BBC, which is a deeply personal and honest account of his career as a doctor for the NHS between 2004 - 2010.

Adam's blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment on the show came at the start of the episode as his fictional self, played by Ben Whishaw, made his early morning commute to work for another grueling shift as a doctor in obstetrics and gynecology.

After a shattered Adam struggled to get his car to start, he then stopped at some roadworks and was so tired from work that he fell asleep at the wheel, only to be rudely awoken by a foul-mouthed cyclist banging on his window... played by Adam Kay!

Fans were happy to see the real Adam come face-to-face very briefly with his fictional self and took to social media to share the moment...

While the BBC is showing episodes of This Is Going To Hurt on a weekly basis, many fans have binge-watched the whole series on iPlayer, gripped as Adam struggles to juggle his chaotic career as a doctor and his personal life. 

Next week's episode will see Adam sorting the guest list for his and Harry's engagement party. But as Adam rings around his friends and family who haven't seen him for so long thanks to his long hours as a doctor, will anyone even turn up?

Meanwhile, Shruti continues to struggle with the huge demands at work and tries a different approach to her job as she emotionally detaches herself from her patients. But things don't go to plan when she encounters a grieving couple, leaving her more lost than ever.
