Call the Midwife is back on our screens this Christmas and we can’t wait! We caught up with Helen George, 32, who plays Trixie Franklin in the show for our brand new BUMPER issue of Woman’s Own (out now!) and she let us in on what the show has in store for us.

This time around, the nuns and midwives are off to South Africa, and Helen admits that the cast were, “over the moon” when they found out. She also revealed that Trixie’s skills as a midwife are really put to the test in the new country, “She’s much more serious and she’s really curious about the surgical side of things. You see her being a much more proficient and better midwife”. However, Helen did admit that Trixie doesn’t have it all figured out just yet. She revealed, “her love life is still a mess!”
