We’ve been watching the chemistry between them since the beginning of the series, and now it seems love may finally be in the air for the devout nun and the doctor.

Stephen McGann, who plays Dr Turner, says: ‘We develop feelings for each other, but there are all the constraints of the time. I’m a widower, and this is the age we live in.

‘As the series progresses, something develops involving us two.’

‘It’s delicately tackled,’ adds Laura Main, who plays Sister Bernadette. ‘Well, I am a nun!’

The actress revealed that when the defining moment was screened at the staff party, the whole cast and crew cheered.

We can’t wait to see it all unfold. Bring on series two!
