Michelle Keegan has swapped glitz and glamour for baggy combats for her new role in 'Our Girl'.

The 28-year-old actress has traded the streets of Essex, where she resides with her husband Mark Wright, for the blistering heat in South Africa as she shoots the new series of the BBC One military drama for the next six months.

The BBC teased a first look at the brunette beauty in action as it uploaded a shot of Michelle in her army gear this morning (18.03.16) alongside the caption: "First look: @michkeegan stars as Corporal Georgie Lane in the five-part second series of #OurGirl for @BBCOne. (sic)"

The former 'Coronation Street' actress landed the lead role in the second series after Lacey Turner, who played Molly Dawes in the first series, stepped down in 2014.

Michelle will play Corporal Georgie Lane as she's sent out to Kenya on a surprising mission.

Speaking about the part, Michelle, who viewers most recently saw on screen in BBC programme 'Ordinary Lies', said recently: "First time I put on the uniform it felt quite surreal but then I immediately felt the sense of duty - as if I was in the military. I'm a massive fan of the series so can't wait to be a part of it. It's going to be a big but exciting challenge for me."
