In episode two, Dr Xand van Tulleken and Dr He­len Lawal chal­lenge more diet testers to slim down quickly. This week, we learn all about char­coal drinks (they sound yum!), and the “break­fast diet”, where we can lit­er­ally eat cake. We’ll do that one, please. The re­main­ing six who didn’t get to per­form last week give us a twirl and those are: Brian Mc­fad­den (wor­ried about fall­ing over), Melody Thorn­ton, Richard Black­wood, Ryan Side­bot­tom, Saira Khan and ( Love Is­land’s) Wes Nel­son. Sid­ney (James Nor­ton) is down in the dumps fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of Vi­o­let. Luck­ily, she shows up again – mak­ing for a pretty ma­jor episode with an emo­tional end­ing... The Yule­tide episode was most en­joy­able and we don’t have to wait long for more be­cause here it is: se­ries eight of Mid­wife, with Harry Pot­ter star Miriam Mar­goyles now firmly es­tab­lished as new­bie Sis­ter Mil­dred, and Trixie (He­len Ge­orge) prop­erly back as well, yay! Lu­cille is busy car­ing for a heav­ily preg­nant young mum-to-be, Les­ley – but it’s Les­ley’s sis­ter Cath who ap­pears to be hid­ing a baby-shaped se­cret… Else­where, Sis­ter Mon­ica Joan is be­hav­ing oddly – and then goes miss­ing.

It takes around seven hours to film ev­ery birth scene. Real in­fants can only film for 15 min­utes at a time, so the team has worked with thou­sands of chil­dren over the years!
