It seems David Tennant's youngest daughter is destined for a life on camera! Wife Georgia Tennant took to Instagram on Thursday to share a photograph which seems to be a still for the actor’s upcoming TV project, Staged. The image sees Georgia cradling little Birdie, who was born in October, while holding a glass of wine and gazing out into the distance. David is sat beside her on the garden sofa holding a coffee mug, a bundle of nappies and wet wipes placed on the table in front of them. "Staged. #orisit #Staged @bbcone @infinityhill 10th June, 10:45. Drops on iPlayer from 11th," Georgia captioned the image.

It might well have been Birdie's TV debut, but fans were distracted by another aspect of the photo entirely. "Is David drinking from a mug with his own face in it?!" one follower enquired, with another adding: "Does DT's mug have a picture of his face on it!? Cheers to you supermama!"

"All they need to do is read the first scene, but throughout the series they come up against a multitude of oppositional forces: distraction, boredom, home-schooling and their own egos."
