Helen George has promised an "incredibly romantic" episode

Ahead of the upcoming wedding, Helen George has also opened up about what fans can expect from Trixie and Matthew's nuptials. Speaking to Radio Times, she promised an "incredibly romantic" episode, adding: "She's [Trixie] a perfectionist, she wants everything to go really, really well on the day. But I think along the way, especially with Matthew's support, she sort of realises those material things don't really matter and it doesn't matter about the tiara or whatever."
