Call The Midwife star Helen George has teased a “pretty traumatic” Christmas special.
With the festive period looming large, we’re getting a clearer picture of what’s going to happen in one of our favourite dramas.
And it sounds as though we’ll be weeping into our mince pies once again.
What did Helen say about the Call The Midwife Christmas special?
Speaking with the Radio Times and other members of the press, actress Helen George – who plays Trixie – teased some major, hardcore storylines.
“I think people always expect the light and shade in Call the Midwife, especially in the Christmas special,” she said.
“I think there’s an anticipation that you’re going to be crying over your sherry but then rejoicing by the end of it. It’s a current thread we’ve had going but yeah, pretty traumatic as well, I guess.
“But that’s the nature of childbirth or Call the Midwife.”
What else is happening in the Christmas special?
On top of Helen’s ominous tease, the BBC released the official synopsis for the Christmas Day special.
It said: “Series 11 begins with a Christmas special set in December 1966. Christmas promises to be a memorable one at Nonnatus House as Lucille (Leonie Elliott) and Cyril (Zephryn Taitte) prepare for their upcoming winter wedding.”
It also said that “the Nonnatus team are faced with their busiest Christmas Day ever as the Maternity Home is filled with expectant mums-to-be, each with their own challenging case.
“Luckily, Mother Mildred (Miriam Margolyes) is on hand to support the team.”
Another huge spoiler
On The One Show last week, Helen’s co-star Jenny Agutter also dropped a huge spoiler.
She told hosts Rylan Clark and Ronan Keating: “We find ourselves overwhelmed by the amount of births coming up and not enough people to take care of it.
“We’re running out of midwives.”
The first snippet from the special was then shown to viewers.
