Appearing on Lorraine this morning (Thursday March 14), the Scottish host was quick to compliment her guest about her impressive dance skills.

TV fans will know that Laura won Children In Need's Strictly Come Dancing special in 2015, alongside professional Brendan Cole.

Laura recalled: "A few of us from Call The Midwife did that and I have got my Pudsey Glitterball which is my pride and joy."

Now that Brendan has left the dancing show, Lorraine suggested that Laura could be partnered with Kevin - who won the 2018 series with celebrity partner Stacey Dooley - if she were to sign-up.

She hinted: "Kevin is looking for a new dance partner so that he wins again.

Laura seemed keen on the idea, replying: "That's something for the producers to think about."

But, with Call The Midwife confirmed for another two series, we're not sure when Laura would find the time!

Laura's CTM co-star Helen George took part in the 2015 series of Strictly, and was partnered with Aljaž Skorjanec.

The actress, who plays Trixie Franklin, came sixth overall, while Jay McGuinness went on to win.
