Helen George is best known for her role as glamorous nurse, Trixie Franklin, in Call the Midwife, a role she has played for 11 years.

Clearly a firm favourite with viewers, the actress has hinted at her future and confirmed she is definitely back for the next series. But just like us, she knows nothing about the BBC drama being renewed beyond the next series.

Speaking to RadioTimes, she revealed: "We know nothing. We'll wait and see but we've got one more season which is amazing."

Helen has appeared on the show since its inception in 2012 and has been a regular cast member throughout its run. In her role as Trixie, she has received critical acclaim for her portrayal of a midwife navigating the challenges of working in London's East End in the 1950s and 1960s.

Meanwhile, in a recent interview with the Daily Mail Weekend Magazine, Helen revealed exactly what she loves to watch on TV when Call the Midwife isn't on.

The royal confession came just after the star made a rare comment about her adorable daughter Lark. Talking to The Guardian, the star said: "Last week, when my daughter Lark, who is one and has just learned to kiss, gave me a kiss on my lips to wake me up."

As well as little Lark, Helen shares her oldest daughter Wren, five, with her husband and fellow Call the Midwife star, Jack Ashton. The couple met when filming the BBC series in South Africa in 2016.
