"And yet it remains a centrepiece of the traditional British Christmas meal. And the more curious amongst you might wonder why there are quite so many spouts being prepared by Millicent here....

"All will be revealed! Call the Midwife will return with a new Christmas Special and Series 14 in 2025 xx"

Earlier this year, fans received a first look at the festive episode, with a sneak peek at the Turner family's Christmas decorations. It was confirmed that the Christmas special would take place in 1969, as the beloved characters reflect on the changing decade.

Once the mystery of the sprouts is revealed, fans can look forward to the fourteenth series of the medical drama which is already in the works.

Call the Midwife airs on BBC One and streams on BBC iPlayer.
