It’s been far too long since the show graced our television screens.

However, we’ve got some wonderful news for fans of the show. The BBC has confirmed the show’s airtime and we are just itching for the Christmas special.

They announced the time of the Christmas special on Twitter: “Get those turkey sandwiches ready! #callthemidwife Christmas Special - 7:45pm Christmas Day on @BBCOne.”

The Christmas special will see the midwives deal with a baby being born before their due date.

The girls are enjoying an evening off when a man bangs on the door of Nonatus House. He informs the midwives that his heavily pregnant wife has gone into labour early and is having a ‘born before arrival’.

Actress Miriam Margolyes is set to guest star in the Christmas special as Sister Mildred. Helen George will also return to the series as Nurse Trixie, much to fans delight.

The Call The Midwife Christmas special airs on BBC One at 7:45 pm on Christmas Day.
