Megan joined the drama in season 10, which aired this year.

Megan previously told Radio Times about her character, pupil midwife Nancy: “It’s nice to play a character that has an arc, and to see where she goes…

“She goes through some tough times, there are some big revelations and I think emotionally she goes on quite a journey. She deals with some stuff, does Nancy.

“She’s a bit ditzy. She’s erratic, not great with her studies, but she’s got a big heart, very warm, she’ll chat to everyone. Her chat doesn’t necessarily always make people feel good, she makes people nervous I think sometimes with how she talks.”
