Pictures showed the two actors on set with their co-stars from over the years - including one from the first series at Nonnatus House.

Helen, 36, met Jack when filming the BBC series in South Africa in 2016; they now live together with their three-year-old daughter Wren Ivy in the East End.

"It's not like you have time to have hobbies at the weekends," she explained. "You're on set for a long time every day and you don't get to see many other people.

"We are like-minded people who understand the industry, the career and the long hours."

Helen has played nurse Trixie for ten years

Prior to their romance, Helen was married to fellow actor Oliver Boot. The former couple parted ways in 2015 - the news of their split came out when Helen reached the quarter-finals on Strictly Come Dancing with dance partner Aljaz Skorjanec.

Speaking about being in the limelight at that moment, the 36-year-old admitted: "I was so naive that I thought no one would be interested in me, so that was a shock. I soon realised I didn’t want all that celebrity stuff."
