At one point, the cast and crew relocated to the seaside, but it turned out to be on a pretty drear day.
‘It wasn’t just a grey day, it was terrible!’ Miss Higgins actress Georgie Glen revealed.
‘The sand in the eyes, that was the worst.’
It turned out to be so bad that the director of the long-running BBC drama got an eye infection.

Dr Patrick Turner actor Stephen McGann continued to The Sun: ‘The director was blinded by the sand, and the hair, the poor hair and make up people… because everybody’s hairdo had just… with the salt and the wind and the sand.
‘It just looked terrible and we were all cowering.’
However, he managed to maintain a positive outlook, adding: ‘It was a challenge, but it was also hilarious in its way. And we all got to go away for a few days, that was sweet.’
Cliff Parisi, who plays Fred Buckle, had previously revealed that he ended up with hypothermia due to the shocking cold while filming on the beach.

The 63-year-old told the publication: ‘Everything was going sideways. The wind was unbelievable, it was so cold.
‘I was wearing a shirt with a hanky on my head. I managed to keep the hanky the whole time – but I got hypothermia in the end.
‘They had to take me off-set. I had to warm up, I couldn’t go back on. We’d done most of it by that point.’
Call The Midwife airs Sundays at 8pm on BBC One.
