Call the Midwife is back on BBC One and viewers were delighted to hear Helen George would reprise her role as Trixie Franklin. The actress left during the previous season to go on maternity leave as she was due to give birth to her second daughter, Lark. has all you need to know about the star’s life with her partner and children.

Trixie and Matthew have become one of the fan-favourite couples of the series after Matthew did everything to wow the midwife.

Actress Helen said it was “really lovely” filming their romantic scenes on Albert Bridge in Battersea.

When discussing the run-up to the wedding, Helen admitted Trixie comes under some pressure with planning.

She told “She is getting very upset about a tiara, it means a lot. Hopefully, she is only going to have one wedding.

“So she wants to get it right but yeah she gets stressed along the way. But also because she’s planning it herself so it is a big occasion to plan by yourself.”

In April 2016, she began dating her Call the Midwife co-star Jack Ashton, who played Tom Hereward.

They were filming in South Africa for the Christmas special when they made their relationship official.

Their first daughter, Wren Ivy, was born in September 2017 and Helen had been diagnosed with a medical condition called ICP during the pregnancy.

In November 2021, she gave birth to her second daughter, Lark, who is now over a year old.

In December the family was seen attending Hey Duggee’s first-ever live theatre tour in London.
