"Episode 1 is very exciting for Trixie, as she gets to go to the Lady Emily clinic which is a private clinic in Chelsea to observe how their systems work, and how the midwifery is in place which is a more doctor-lead delivery process," the actress explains in the video.

"The thought is that Nonnatus House will rent out midwives and nuns, to the Lady Emily to help out - to staff the clinic, and in return they'll get a monetary fund, they'll get paid so Nonnatus House is saved."

The caption that accompanied the clip read: "New #CallTheMidwife Series 10 video exclusive! In this clip, @helen_george reveals some insights into episode 1, where Trixie is seconded to a very different kind of medical establishment... Call the Midwife - new series begins Sunday April 18th at 8pm on @BBCOne."

Controller of BBC Drama commissioning Piers Wenger hinted at what fans can expect from series 10, disclosing that "interesting changes in store for the residents of Nonnatus House - Nurse Trixie (Helen George) faces a professional challenge, Sister Monica Jo must overcome a crisis of faith after her devastating fall at Christmas and we're in 1966 the year in which England will win the World Cup."

The returning cast members include Helen (Trixie), Jenny Agutter (Sister Julienne), Linda Bassett (Nurse Crane), Judy Parfitt (Sister Monica Joan), Fenella Woolgar (Sister Hilda), Ella Bruccoleri (Sister Frances), Helen George (Trixie), Leonie Elliott (Lucille), and Stephen McGann (Dr Turner).

Cliff Parisi (Fred), Annabelle Apsion (Violet), Georgie Glen (Miss Higgins), Max Macmillan (Timothy), Zephryn Taitte (Cyril) and Daniel Laurie (Reggie) will also be back.

Call the Midwife returns to BBC One on Sunday, April 18, at 8pm.
