She wrapped up from the cold with a beige coat and wore a pair of comfy looking brown platform boots.

Helen carried a large bag out with her and was accompanied by her dog Charlie, as she made her way back to her own house – ten miles away in East London.

An onlooker told The Sun on Sunday how Olly ‘looked relaxed’ and when Helen left the premises, she looked a ‘little dishevelled’. 

The sightings have fuelled speculation about a budding bond between the two co-stars who share a close connection, despite Olly’s character reportedly being written out of the show.

An insider said: ‘It’s been a tricky year for both Helen and Olly. They have been spending a lot of time together on set, walking their dogs together and chatting a lot.

‘They both have respect for each other as actors and they are supportive of each other and dedicated to their roles on the drama. The changes in their relationships have caused a lot of upheaval.’

A spokesperson for Helen said: ‘Yes, she went to visit a friend for a cup of tea – like all friends do – and as we have always said, there is nothing more to this.’

Mail Online has contacted Olly’s representatives for further comment.

Olly recently split from his makeup artist girlfriend Natasha Fagri after seven years together in July after allegedly drifting apart due to work commitments.

Meanwhile, Helen split from her partner Jack Ashton the same month, after they first met on the set of Call The Midwife seven years prior.

She has played Trixie on the show since 2012, while Jack joined the series two years later as Tom Hereward.

The pair’s characters embarked on a romance on screen and Tom proposed to Trixie, before she ended their relationship.

In real life, the couple were said to have fallen for each other after travelling to South Africa to film the show’s 2016 Christmas Special.

A year later, they welcomed their first child Wren, before their second daughter Lark was born in November 2021.

In May 2021, Helen gave a rare insight into her relationship with Jack and told how them working in the same industry helped their romance.

The pair are now focusing on co-parenting their two children. 

Call The Midwife is set in the 1950s and 1960s in London’s East End – and focuses on a group of midwives in a nursing convent.
