Call The Midwife’s Helen George officially back for season 12 filming

Kat O'Connor

The cast is currently busy filming series 12 of Call The Midwife.

Call The Midwife fans will be thrilled to know a fan favourite is returning for series 12.

The cast is currently filming the pending season and a familiar face has returned to Poplar. Actress Helen George is back on the set after her maternity leave.

She left the show during series 11 to give birth to her second child.

The actress, who plays Nurse Trixie, welcomed a daughter called Lark in November 2021.

The Call The Midwife team posted a photo of Helen on the set this week.

They shared, “Trixie’s back!! Helen George makes her return to Call the Midwife Series 12 filming.”

“Our first week of filming the brand new Series 12 involves both day and night shooting – and guess who made a welcome return to Nonnatus house last night for her first scene.”

“Trixie! Played of course by our lovely Helen George.”

“While Helen has been away she’s had a little ‘midwife calling’ of her own to do, as she is now the proud mother of two!

“Her gorgeous new daughter, Lark, was born late last year.

The team said Helen is “now ready to get back into the saddle of her bicycle to minister to the women of Poplar once more!

“We just can’t wait to show you the next developments in Trixie’s journey.”

Series 12 of Call The Midwife doesn’t air until next year, but we do have this year’s Christmas Special to look forward to.
