Michelle Keegan hints she could return to Our Girl after surprise exit

Michelle Keegan has teased a return to Our Girl.

The Brassic star, 33, bowed out of her starring role as Army officer Georgie Lane in the BBC One military show Our Girl earlier this year, after appearing in four series.

But she could see herself in the role again one day.

She told The Jonathan Ross Show: “I will never say never with Our Girl. I absolutely loved that job. It was a fantastic role for me, it was really challenging.

“Not only was it physically challenging, but I learnt so much on that job about the military and the medical side as well.

“I really enjoyed it, but I felt it was the right time for me to move on then.

“In future Georgie can come back, they have left the door open for Georgie.

“I’ve done it for four seasons, I was going away from home quite a lot. I was away for four months at a time, the year before that I was away for eight months.

“I was so lucky (to travel). It’s hard work and long days. Sometimes we’re working six-day weeks and it is very challenging.”

Michelle also opened up about her moments of self-doubt, adding: “I think that’s a reason why I did Our Girl. When I first got the role, people were doubting me straight away saying, ‘She can’t do that. It’s too stripped back.’

“That was a chance for me to do what I wanted to do as an actress. I felt very lucky I was able to do that. I would say that I gave everything to that role, definitely.”

The Jonathan Ross Christmas Show airs on Thursday December 24 at 10pm on ITV.
