What happens in the Call the Midwife Christmas Special clip?
In the clip, Nurse Trixie (Helen George) runs down the stairs when the front doorbell rings and receives a Christmas letter from the postman.
She gets very excited when she sees a postmark from Portofino in Italy.
She explains to the assembled nurses in the living room that she receives a clothing allowance from her godmother every year.
Excitedly opening the letter, she’s left flabbergasted with what she finds inside.
“She’s paid for me to join a marriage bureau,” she splutters. “So that I don’t end up – and I quote – ‘on the shelf.'”
An enraged Trixie then bursts into tears.
How did viewers react?
The clip was first shown on This Morning and then aired on the show’s official Twitter feed.
And it wasn’t long until viewers and fans expressed their delight at the teaser clip.
“Just what 2020 needed,” one fan wrote.
Oh god I am excited already.
Another said: “Oh god I am excited already,” while a third commented: “Can’t wait!!”
Finally, another fan said: “Oh something good for Christmas Day.”
What else happens in the Call the Midwife Christmas Special 2020?
