Michelle Keegan is back! The 29-year-old actress has reprised her role as Corporal Georgie Lane in BBC One drama, Our Girl. The first photo of the pretty star has been released, showing Michelle in her army get-up complete with sturdy boots. In the third series, fans will see her character travel to Nepal for a relief mission, after a devastating earthquake hits the region. The mission has "hazardous and unpredictable consequences" for army girl Georgie, who was kidnapped by a terrorist group in Kenya in series two.

Michelle's character Georgie will take part in three separate missions in the twelve-part series, which is due to air on BBC One later this year. Newcomer Shalom Brune-Franklin, star of Barracuda and Crossing The Border, will join the cast as Private Maisie Richards while Luke Pasqualino, Georgie's love interest and ex-fiancé, will return as Special Forces Officer Elvis Harte. Ben Aldridge, who is best known for Fleabag and Lark Rise to Candleford, will reprise his role as Captain James.
