Is Victoria Yeates married?

Not yet, but she did get engaged in a most romantic fashion! She told us in a recent interview:
"I met my Australian partner (musician and composer Paul Housden) randomly five years ago when he was playing at my friend's 40th birthday party. I wasn't really looking for a relationship but it quickly fell into place. When we were on holiday [after filming the Call the Midwife Christmas special!] in South Africa two years ago he suddenly popped the question. 

"We were on the terrace of a cafe surrounded by beautiful mountains and I was so taken aback that I was laughing and crying at the same time. It was a good surprise."

The pair are getting married in summer 2018 in the French Pyrenees.

She met Paul Housden six months before taking on the role of Sister Winifred. She says:
"One of the reasons I wanted to play the role, besides it being such a big show, was that it meant I could film it and stay at home in London. In the past I have put my career first and was always working away, but this time, I thought: 'If I carry on doing this, I will never settle down and get married.' The series has made a massive difference to my life."
