Michelle Keegan "loves" playing Georgie Lane in 'Our Girl' because of her character's attitude and caring nature

Michelle Keegan "loves" playing Georgie Lane in 'Our Girl'.

The 30-year-old actress has reprised her role as the army medic in the upcoming 12-part series, and the star has admitted she enjoys playing the tenacious character because of her strong attitude and caring nature.

Speaking to The Mirror Online about the programme, the brunette beauty - who is married to 'Extra' co-host and former 'The Only Way Is Essex' hunk Mark Wright - said: "Georgie looks after number one but she also looks after everyone else. I love her attitude."

In the previous season Georgie was due to marry Doctor Jamie Cole, who is portrayed by Royce Pierreson, but she called the engagement off.

And the former 'Coronation Street' star - who is known for playing the role of Tina McIntyre in the longstanding soap - has revealed there is "no news" of her on-screen ex-partner in the upcoming series.

Speaking about the plot, she said: "Unfortunately there's no news of Jamie."

However, Georgie's true love Elvis Harte, who is played by Luke Pasqualino, does make a comeback and he continues to try and win her back after he left her standing at the altar in a previous series.

But Michelle has revealed Georgie and Elvis continue their spat and have a "bust up" in the forthcoming episodes.

She said: "Georgie and Elvis have a bust-up this series."

And though Elvis is trying to woo Georgie, he has a history with Private Maisie Richards, who is portrayed by Shalom Brune-Franklin, which is believed to be the root of the former couple's "jealousy" and arguments.

Michelle continued: "There's a lot of frustration and a lot of jealousy."

Although Michelle and Luke's characters clash on screen, off camera the pair get on well, and the dark haired hunk has praised the 'Tina and Bobby' star for her great work ethic.

Speaking previously, the 27-year-old 'Skins' heartthrob said: "Working with her is amazing.

"She knows everyone's name on set and is a complete pro. She's beautiful inside and out."
