Helen George on Sunday night's episode of Call the Midwife

Call the Midwife star Helen George has said that her character, Trixie, and her dentist boyfriend Christopher could be heading for relationship trouble in tonight’s episode.

The 33-year-old actress, who’s provided a guide to what’s coming up in the series, has revealed that there’s tough times ahead for her character.

In an interview with TV Times, Helen said: “Although she loves him, she is still vulnerable and this week, Trixie learns that his daughter Alexandra is being affected by his divorce from her mother. She’s tried hard with Alexandra, but a case that Trixie deals with makes her realise what a huge effect a broken home can have on a child.”

Helen also revealed that Trixie is set to deal with her alcoholism again.

“Her work is a worry because with such a stressful job, it will become a tricky thing for her to keep spinning all of the plates. It’s a problem that’s easier for Trixie not to face up to…”
