Midwife star Miriam Margolyes reveals that she worked as a porn star Sexy Sonia

Miriam Margolyes, special Christmas star for midwives, today reveals a hidden past that would certainly make her nuns blush.

She has already worked as a porn actress with a silky voice called Sexy Sonia.

And Miriam, 77, also admits having posed nude for a famous painter.

The actress Harry Potter will play the wonderful sister Mildred in the festive special of Nonnatus House.

But in her youth, some of the habits she had taken were rather daring.

"Before becoming an established actress, I was known for my work as a voice artist," said the star who was a success this year in the show "Big American Adventure" of the BBC, Miriam's.

"And I recorded a soft-porn audio file called Sexy Sonia: Leaves from my school notebook … it was one of my very first shows.

"It was on sale in sex shops and one day I went to Ann Summers' and told the man behind the counter that I was Sexy Sonia.

"He was very anxious and told me to keep my voice low because he did not want people to know that she was that short, fat and rather unattractive person."

Miriam, the veteran of the stage and screen, who has regained the public eye in the reality show of the BBC's The Real Marigold Hotel, has also become such a big fan of the painter Welsh Augustus John that she wrote him to propose posing nude.

"I thought it was worth undressing for a genius," says the actress who was 17 at the time, when he was 80 years old.

Miriam – who also posed nude in advertising shots for the 1975 television drama, The Girls Of Slender Means – said: "I ended up playing for him naked. He told me to climb
scale though, and that made me feel very strange. "

Millions of people across the country will be attending Miriam's guest appearance in Call The Midwife, but she admits she will not be sitting to watch her after Christmas dinner with her partner Heather Sutherland . "I never watch the shows I'm in," she says.

The arrival of Mildred at Nonnatus House with four Chinese orphans is a surprise.

The call of the midwife

In history, the youth had fled China and were found abandoned in Hong Kong before being adopted in the UK as part of the World Refugee Project.

Unexpected visitors – as well as their Mildred chaperone – will bring festive joy and chaos to the Nonnatus House, while midwives exclude themselves by taking care of Poplar's future mums.

As the eighth series begins in the new year, fans will see Judy Parfitt stage remarkable performances: Monica's sister fighting dementia.

Judy's husband, Tony, died of the disease in 2001, but claims to have not been inspired by real life.

"Dementia is not a thing, it has many aspects," she says. "My husband had vascular dementia. You can continue normally and then, if you get sick, stressed, worried or scared, the chain breaks. You have just lost the plot. It is a very complex disease. Every dementia is different.

"The madness of my husband belonged to him. I do not think about it when I play it. "

Judy, 83, says Call The Midwife is the "best show on television".

And we are the most watched, regardless of what all the titles are on Poldark, "she adds.

"We are about 10.8 million. It is very annoying when, in all the newspapers, it is said that Poldark is the best show. I am in the top show. "
