Freshly off her honeymoon, Michelle Keegan has bagged lead role in upcoming army drama ‘Our Girl.’
The 28-year-old former ‘Coronation Street’ star is taking over from Lacey Turner in the second series of the show, and will soon be flying to Kenya, the Daily Star has reported.
Keegan, who wed ‘TOWIE’ star Mark Wright last month, will be playing Army medic Corporal Georgie Lane in the five-part series, and admitted that she couldn’t wait to be a part of it as she was a huge fan.
It will be a big but exciting challenge, she added.
The show is scheduled to air in 2016.
