The Daily Mail shared snaps of Charlotte Ritchie, who is perhaps best known for playing Nurse Barbara in the hit BBC show, filming alongside Tom Brittney, who plays Reverend Will Davenport in the series - and she’s rocking a whole new look!

The actress, who has also starred in Feel Good, looked completely different with short, blonde, curly hair instead of her usual brunette locks. She styled her gorgeous new hair look with jeans, an orange top and a brown jacket, which suited the show’s 1950s time period. 

The pair also looked to be enjoying each other’s company behind the scenes, as they both smiled as Tom showed Charlotte something on his phone. We’re delighted to see Charlotte back in period costumes since leaving Call the Midwife back in 2018, after her character was killed off.

Are you looking forward to seeing her in Grantchester?

Chatting to Radio Times about her exit at the timethe Ghosts actress revealed that it was a "bad idea" to sit down and watch her death scene with her mum, explaining: "In a way it helped that she could turn and see I was still here. But, overall… really bad idea.”

She added that she missed her fan favourite role, saying: "I miss Call the Midwife and I miss being Barbara at the table with Trixie.” We can’t wait to see what she has in store in her Grantchester role!
