A TV source told me Sun: ‘Call the Midwife may have been around for almost a decade, but things are still going well and give the Beeb a winner on Sunday evening.

“There was no way the company would stop a show that has such a strong following and so much more room for storylines.”

“Continuing the show in series 12 and 13, the program will enter one of the most exciting periods in recent memory.”

Call The Midwife regularly attracts more than 10 million viewers, making it one of the most successful shows on UK TV.

But it has only won one Bafta award, the Radio Times Audience Award in 2013, which was voted on by members of the public.

It has not received a single nomination in any category since that year, with the award for Best Drama often going to thrillers like Peaky Blinders or Broadchurch.

The show was written and created by Heidi Thomas based on a nurse’s memoir.
