According to an interview in the Metro newspaper, as a child, George wanted to become a long jumper, although she also had a phase in which she wished to become the first female manager of the Aston Villa football club.
George decided that she wanted to work in musical theatre at the age of 15, when she was in a production of Les Misérables at her secondary school, Henry Beaufort Winchester. She is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music, London and the Birmingham School of Acting.
George attended the Royal Academy of Music, London, studying musical theatre. She gained her first role some two weeks after graduation in the play The Woman in White. She was a backing singer for Elton John during a tour, in which her sister Victoria Ingle also sang. She sang at venues including both Wembley Arena and the Royal Albert Hall.
George was cast in the role of Trixie on the BBC One series Call the Midwife, based on the book by Jennifer Worth. She was daunted by the prospect of working with the likes of Pam Ferris and Jenny Agutter. As part of the role she was trained in the medical techniques of the 1950s, including how to deliver a baby. During the first series, she practised this at home with her husband taking the role of a pregnant woman, and her Yorkshire Terrier being the 'baby'. In 2012, she underwent a press tour in the United States in order to promote the series there. She also starred in the music video for singer Birdy's cover of "1901".
In August 2015, George was announced as one of the celebrities who would compete in the thirteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing. She was partnered with professional dancer Aljaž Skorjanec. Despite continuously getting high remarks from the judges, George was eliminated in week 11, finishing in sixth place.
George married Oliver Boot in December 2012. They met when they were both in Hotel Babylon, but started their relationship several years later. They own two dogs, Lottie and Charlie, a Jack Russell Terrier, which she found as a stray when it was six months old, and a Yorkshire Terrier.
In August 2015, representatives of George confirmed that she and Boot had split up after three years of marriage.. As of 2016, she begun dating Jack Ashton, her costar on Call The Midwife. On 4th September 2017, it was confirmed that George and Ashton were expecting their first child together.
