Helen George has shared an interesting behind-the-scenes secret about the Call the Midwife’s anticipated finale, which will air on Sunday (February 26).
As some fans of the show will already know, her cherished character, Nurse Trixie Franklin, is set to finally tie the knot with boyfriend Matthew Aylward, played by Olly Rix.
Speaking to the team at BAFTA ahead of the season finale, the 38-year-old actress expressed that she’d struggled to find the perfect dress for Trixie’s big day.

She said: “Look I got really het up about the dress as poor Olly had to deal with. There was a lot of pressure on it, which Helen felt and Trixie felt in turn.
“So yeah, it was tricky thing to find. And now we’ve done it, I’m thinking: ‘Oh I would have – maybe we should have done that. And you know, there was a lot of pressure surrounding it.’
“And there were conversations between every department, everyone had an opinion about it.”
Helen has played the midwife since series 1 of the beloved show. In April 2016, she began dating her Call the Midwife co-star Jack Ashton when they went to South Africa to film the show’s Christmas special.
The couple now share two children together – daughters Wren and Lark.
