Helen George served up a stunning look on Wednesday evening to enjoy a night out with her Call the Midwife co-stars - and we're totally swooning over her sassy LBD.

The 38-year-old actress enchanted in a romantic puff-sleeved babydoll dress, featuring statement ruched sleeves and a charming sweetheart neckline. Trading in her Nurse Trixie uniform, Helen teamed her mini dress with sheer tights, amping up the glamour of her all-black ensemble with vampy knee-high boots in a patent croc print.

Helen, who debuted her new chocolate-brown tresses earlier this week, styled her new 'do in elegant curls. As for makeup, the former Strictly Come Dancing star opted for a dramatic feline eyeliner and glossy crimson lip.

The star is known by her fans for sporting her iconic bright blonde locks, but we're loving her switch up to the dark side. Helen's fans were quick to react to her hair transformation when she dropped a selfie on Friday.

The TV star spoke to The One Show's Alex Jones about her upcoming role. Gushing about her experience, she told the presenter: "I've been really lucky with it, it's such a classic musical as well and a role I never thought I'd have the opportunity to play.

"The dress weighs 40 pounds, it is huge. I am starting to rehearse in the petticoat, but no one can get close to me because it comes out so far."
