Call The Midwife creator Heidi Thomas has said that fans have ‘no need to worry’ that the show will be ending any time soon.

Helen, 35, who plays Trixie Franklin, Jennifer, 31, who plays Valerie Dyer, and Leonie, 31, who plays Lucille Anderson, embraced series nine’s 1965 theme in matching vintage Yves Saint Laurent mini dresses from the same time era.

During the chat, creator Heidi revealed that Sister Julienne, played by Jenny Agutter, and her team ‘have more work to do than ever’ in the hit BBC series. 

The show creator added that there are plenty of more stories to tell and she has no plans to end the show anytime soon. 

Talking to RadioTimes, she said: ‘Call the Midwife has come a long way from the twin sets, pearls and dirndl skirts of series one. And the changes have not been confined to the wardrobe. 

‘All across Poplar, people's lives have been transfigured by slum clearance, antibiotics, vaccinations, contraception, and gas and air in childbirth.

‘Indeed, things are looking up so much that our fans have started fretting, asking “How much longer can the show go on?” 

‘They have no need to worry. Sister Julienne and her devoted team have more work to do than ever, because change is never instant, or complete, nor is it always welcome. Progress can give with one hand, and take away with the other.’

Call The Midwife is one of the BBC’s most popular shows, attracting millions of viewers with every series. 

The drama, about East End nurses in the 50’s and 60’s, stars Jennifer Kirby, Helen George, Leonie Elliot, Laura Main and Jenny Agutter, as well as Stephen McGann, 56, (Doctor Turner), whom Heidi is married to.

Over the summer, creator Heidi was forced to hit back at claims she had bowed out from the much-loved BBC show.   

It was reported that the writer quit the long-running drama so she could concentrate on other projects because the show was said to have left her with no time.

Heidi told MailOnline: ‘Reports that I am leaving Call The Midwife are absolute nonsense.

‘I am currently happily working on Series 9, and will continue with my role until the show itself comes to an end.

‘Series 10 and 11 have already been commissioned by the BBC, meaning we will be on air until at least 2022.’
