Call the Midwife’s Trixie is in for a tearful series finale from the looks of this exclusive first-look clip.

The fan-favourite character - played beautifully by original cast member Helen George - has been going through the wringer over the last couple of episodes after her husband Matthew (Olly Rix)’s financial struggles came to light and threw their comfortable plans for married life together into chaos.

In episode seven, Matthew revealed to Trixie that he planned to travel to New York to try and recover his fortunes, but Trixie - despite repeating her love for him - was unwilling to leave behind her beloved role as a Poplar-based midwife to join him.

Now, this week’s first look clip shared with shows Trixie struggling in his absence.

Watch this week's emotional first-look clip here:

As the above clip shows, instead of joining her Nonnatus House friends and family for their bonfire night celebrations, a tearful-looking Trixie appears determined to walk away from Nonnatus House without being seen.

However, her brother Geoffrey (Christopher Harper) catches her on her way out and does his best to comfort her in her time of need.

Worryingly, however, Trixie appears unwilling to listen to his words of comfort, and still leaves the scene in an emotional state.
