Call the Midwife for comedy?

Jessica Raine says she would “love to do some comedy” with co-star Miranda Hart

Jessica Raine’s Call the Midwife character Jenny Lee certainly isn’t dull as dishwater, but her skill lies in delivering babies rather than funny lines.


But that doesn’t mean Jessica isn’t eyeing comedy opportunities outside of the BBC drama.

Handy then that comedy sweetheart Miranda Hart co-stars in the show, meaning the pair could perhaps double up in the future for a skit or two.

“I’d love to some comedy work with Miranda,” Jessica told Heat. “It would just have to be when it happens. This year is pretty booked up,” she added.

Booked up indeed. We’ve already seen Jessica bundled up and mingling amongst the mistletoe as the cast continue to film scenes for series 3 and this year’s Christmas episode.
