Call the Midwife cast 'shocked' as star is axed from BBC show

Olly Rix, an actor on the hit BBC1 show Call the Midwife, is reportedly being written out of the show. This news comes as a surprise to the cast and crew, as Rix's character had recently married his on-screen wife, played by Helen George. Rix was informed of his departure only last week, despite filming for the new series already being underway. This sudden decision has left the cast and crew upset, and there is concern about upsetting production. Neither Rix nor the show's spokesperson have commented on the situation.
