Michelle Keegan will soon be back on our screens as Our Girl is set to return in just a couple of weeks.

BBC has announced that the second part of the third series will be airing from Tuesday 5th June at 9pm on BBC One.

The military drama follows Michelle’s character Georgie Lane and the other members of 2 Section on various overseas missions.

As fans will know, the third series has a new format – divided into three four-part mini-series, each following missions in different parts of the world.

The first block aired in October 2017 and saw Georgie and 2 Section on a mission in Nepal.

Now, according to the Radio Times, the second part will have two separate plots.

First, Georgie and 2 Section will head to Nigeria.

Our Girl creator Tony Grounds told the publication: “When they arrive in this village, some schoolgirls have been taken.

“That north part of Nigeria is controlled by Boko Haram whereas the south is government-controlled. So they go there and are embroiled in a situation that tries to free the schoolgirls.”

The team will then be joined by special forces on the Guatemalan/Belize border on a separate mission, where a couple of soldiers get lost in the jungle.

At the end of the last mini-series, fans were left devastated after Elvis Harte – played by Luke Pasqualino – was killed off.

The devastating death happened just after it appeared that Elvis and Georgie had finally overcome their issues to reunite properly.

At the end of the final episode, 2 Section were ambushed and as Elvis explored a building, he found a bomb had been placed on the roof.

As he investigated, the bomb was detonated remotely via mobile phone.

He was flung from the building as Georgie watched in horror. She attempted to revive him, but it was too late – Elvis had breathed his last.

Although fans won’t be seeing any more of Elvis, they can look forward to seeing other familiar faces, including Harki Bhambra as Rab, Shalom Brune-Franklin as Maisie Richards and Captain James played by Ben Aldridge.

Michelle, 30, has been heading up the military drama since series two began in 2016, taking over from season one’s star, Lacey Turner.
