'Our Girl' will make a return to television on October 10 on BBC One at 9pm
'Our Girl' will return to screens in two weeks' time.
Michelle Keegan - who plays Corporal Georgie Lane in the show - has spent the past three months shooting the third series of the army drama in South Africa and the Malaysian jungle, but fans won't have to wait too much longer to watch the follow-up as the BBC have confirmed it'll air on October 10 at 9pm on BBC One.
Alongside a 15-second clip posted on Twitter of Michelle in character, they wrote: "Corporal Georgie Lane is reporting for duty. @michkeegan returns in Series 3 of #OurGirl. Starts Tuesday 10th October. 9pm. @BBCOne. (sic)"
Not much is known about the forthcoming series but Georgie will be deployed on three separate missions alongside her ex-boyfriend Elvis Hart (Luke Pasqualiano).
The last series saw Georgie jilt her fiance Dr Jamie Cole (Royce Pierreson) at the altar when she realised she was still in love with her former flame Elvis - who is part of the Special Forces - after he saved her life when she was helped captive by the Taliban.
Although the pair didn't get back together after their romantic moment back in Manchester, fans are no doubt hoping that there's a happy ending for them this time.
However, the third series was almost subject to a delay after Michelle, 30, reportedly threatened to pull out of filming when script expert Andrea Bamford was struck by a deadly spider while filming was taking place for the forthcoming series.
A source said: "They hooked her up on a drip and said if she was 15 minutes later she would have died. Everyone, including Michelle, is completely shocked and feels they are in danger. Bosses had to assure them that it is fine to continue filming."
Despite dealing with deadly animals, Michelle has admitted landing the lead role in the drama has been a career highlight because it's forced her out of her comfort zone.
