The actress plays army medic Georgie Lane on the war-based series, and t’s been quit the series for the character.
Taking to Instagram following the tense final episode of series two, Michelle confessed filming had been one of the “most incredible experiences of her life”. Praising her “amazing” cast, Michelle admitted she felt “emotional” as she confirmed that the show would be back and so would she.
She wrote alongside a snap of her in uniform: “Well that’s an official wrap. One of the most incredible experiences of my life. Thank you so much for your amazing support I feel so emotional right now. Thank you also to the amazing people who I was lucky enough to work with on this special project. #OurGirl2016 @bbcone.” The actress posted a series of snaps in the lead up to the final of her time away filming in Kenya. At the end of last night’s episode, Corporal Georgie headed off to Syria for her next army tour, and it has now been confirmed that another series is on the way.
BBC One confirmed the news on Twitter after the end of last night’s big episode, which saw Georgie in danger once again at the hands of terrorist Abu. The account posted: “We’re delighted to announce tha #OurGirl will return to @BBCOne for a third series, starring @michkeegan as Georgie Lane.” Michelle’s character had spent the whole series choosing between Luke Pasqualino’s character Elvis and Jamie (Royce Pierrson). And the final episode left viewers disappointed, as the army girl chose to marry neither and go it alone. It finished with a voiceover from Michelle saying: “Husbands? They’re overrated. I’ve got something much more important. I have a job to do.”

Michelle Keegan has been a busy bee of late and now she’s added another project to her line-up of TV work – but this one is TOTALLY different to what we’re used to seeing Keegs in!
The actress – who is currently winning ace reviews for her performance in BBC drama Our Girl – has signed up for a one-off revival show of The Crystal Maze. As in the gloriously bonkers 1990s game show which saw contestants face challenges in a series of themed zones to collect crystals and win prizes.
This revival is all for a good cause though. Michelle, 29, will play the game alongside former footballer Rio Ferdinand, comedian Josh Widdicombe, DJ Sara Cox and Paralympic champion Jonnie Peacock in aid of Channel 4’s Stand Up To Cancer fundraiser.
The Office star Stephen Merchant will present the show, which is set to be broadcast next month.
It looks like the celebs filmed the special episode on Thursday though as Michelle hinted that she’d had a ball by retweeting a photo from the set…
Fans are pretty excited to see Keegs take on the challenge and many are hoping she managed to beat the clock in each zone.
‘Hope you didn’t get locked in Michelle,’ one Twitter user commented.
Another posted: ‘Michelle Keegan is enough of a reason to watch The Crystal Maze special later in the year’
Michelle hasn’t spoken about her latest project as of yet but we can’t wait to see how she gets on!
It’s certainly something VERY different for the actress, who has been racking up some impressive performances ever since she left Coronation Street in 2014.
After appearing in drama Ordinary Lies last year, 2016 has been very busy for Michelle and she’s been wowing viewers with her portrayal of army medic Georgie Lane in Our Girl.
The TV star has also been filming upcoming ITV series Tina And Bobby and even proved she’s got comedy chops earlier this year with roles in Plebs and Drunk History.
Who’d have thought we’d next be seeing her running around a maze trying to earn crystals, eh?
