What did Jenny say about Call The Midwife?

Jenny, who plays Sister Julienne in the series, appeared on This Morning.

We are under threat of moving again and that threat just stays there and it’s particularly worrying.

Ruth Langsford asked Jenny what was in store for Nonnatus House and referred to the series nine finale, when the building was under threat of demolition.

Eamonn then asked whether the real Nonnatus House still exists.

“Not quite,” Jenny replied. “There is a group of people who are Nonnatus House, the nuns do exist and they are near Birmingham and have moved a couple of times, as we have once.”

What else did Jenny say?

She then addressed the series nine cliffhanger in the fictional lodgings.

“We are under threat of moving again and that threat just stays there and it’s particularly worrying, especially for Sister Julienne.”

Let’s hope the nuns and midwives can find a way to save the place – Poplar (and our TV screens) wouldn’t be the same!
