Call The Midwife is set to return to BBC One this festive season for the show's annual Christmas special, which will reportedly see two much-loved characters leave Nonnatus House behind.

The series will then return for its twelfth season in 2023, with the show's creator Heidi Thomas previously teasing that the new episodes will feature some "very strong stories".

She said: "Again, we’re looking at some very strong stories about the way society was changing at that time. And that can be as simple as ventouse delivery coming in as a sort of improvement or alternative to forceps, certainly.

"But also in the very first episode of the new series which will probably come out in January if it follows the usual pattern, I realised the timing of that episode coincided exactly with Enoch Powell’s Rivers of Blood speech which made a huge difference, and not a very positive difference, to race relations in Great Britain.

"It was a big turning point I think for our society and the way we spoke of and behaved towards people who had come here from other countries, so that was something we felt we had to tackle."
