Call The Midwife star Helen George has admitted that she did not relish having to pucker up for her on-screen romance.

The actress plays nurse Trixie Franklin, who has taken a shine to Tom (Jack Ashton) in the hit BBC One period drama.

Asked whether she enjoyed the on-screen romance, she told the Radio Times: "I find it really nerve-racking.

"Tom was my first screen kiss and it was mortifying - all the crew were there wolf-whistling.

"And watching yourself kissing is the weirdest thing ever."

She said of the success of the show: "After the first episode of this series we were all saying how crazy it was to get such a ridiculously high figure three years in.

"There's always a sense of waiting for people to go, 'Actually, we're over this now,' but luckily that hasn't happened yet."

This is a wonderful opportunity to develop a creative project. Keep a notebook where you can store images, ideas, phrases and melodies that pop into your mind at odd intervals. This treasure trove will help you blast through blocks that held you prisoner in the past. It will also help to devote a set time each day to artistic pursuits. Exercising your imagination on a regular basis will cultivate contentment. There's more to you than your job title.More
