Our Girl Returns Later This Year!

 

Michelle Keegan, who is known for her role as Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street, is currently filming the second series of Our Girl in Africa. The show, which returns later this year on BBC1, sees the popular young actress playing Corporal Georgie Lane who is posted to  Kenya. In preparation for the physically-demanding role, Keegan worked with military professionals and spent four days at an army barracks in Aldershot taking part in medical and combat training.

 

Details of the new series remain under wraps, but we do have some exclusive behind-the-scenes pictures including one of show writer Tony Grounds taking a selfie on set in Africa!

 

The first series, which aired in 2014, saw EastEnders actress Lacey Turner play Molly Dawes who leaves the world of pubs and clubs and everything she knows for a new challenge - to become an army medic in Afghanistan. The show received very positive reviews and achieved fantastic ratings – 6.3 million people turned in to watch the series.
