Call The Midwife’s Helen George ‘spotted leaving co-star Olly Rix’s home in the early hours’ after they both split from their partners
Call The Midwife’s Helen George was seen leaving her co-star Olly Rix’s home, sparking rumours of a growing connection following their recent breakups.
The actors, known for their roles as on-screen lovers Trixie Franklin and Matthew Aylward in the BBC drama, are said to be supporting each other as they navigate through their heartbreak.
Olly, 36, who recently split from his makeup artist girlfriend of seven years, was spotted at his West London home, with Helen, 39, emerging a few hours later carrying a large bag.
Her dog Charlie was also with her as she made her way back to her own house – ten miles away in East London.
An onlooker told The Sun on Sunday how Olly ‘looked relaxed’ and when Helen left the premises, she looked a ‘little dishevelled’.

The sightings have fuelled speculation about a budding bond between the two co-stars who share a close connection, despite Olly’s character reportedly being written out of the show.
An inider said: ‘It’s been a tricky year for both Helen and Olly. They have been spending a lot of time together on set, walking their dogs together and chatting a lot.
‘They both have respect for each other as actors and they are supportive of each other and dedicated to their roles on the drama. The changes in their relationships have caused a lot of upheaval.’
Mail Online has contacted Helen and Olly’s representatives for further comment.
Helen split from her partner Jack Ashton after they first met on the set of Call The Midwife seven years prior.
She has played Trixie Franklin on the show since 2012, while Jack joined the series two years later as Tom Hereward.
The pair’s characters embarked on a romance on screen and Tom proposed to Trixie, before she ended their relationship.
In real life, the couple were said to have fallen for each other after travelling to South Africa to film the show’s 2016 Christmas Special.
