Miranda Hart has admitted that filming with a young baby for Call The Midwife was a tough challenge - for both her and the baby.

The comedian told the Radio Times that her character Chummy Noakes, who is back in the new series of the BBC period drama as a new mum, would be a natural at parenthood but that she found the filming a little more difficult.

She said: "Chummy takes to motherhood like a duck to water, loving her son unconditionally and wanting to give him all the emotional support she never got.

"But she is conflicted about whether to go back to work as she still has a deep yearning for her vocation."

She added: "Filming with newborns is always a challenge, but Chummy's son is six months old at the beginning of this series, and that age is hard to film with as they are at the wriggle stage, and don't necessarily want to be held by a tall stranger with glasses!"
