Who is Cheese in Our Girl?

Let's start with his real name – it's Private Rhett Charlton.

We're not sure how he got the nickname Cheese but pretty much all the soldiers in 2-Section have one and he's no different.

He arrives in Afghanistan to join the squad and will be accompanying them on all future missions.

Producers have teased what fans can expect from the new arrival: ""Cheese is not short of swagger and always has a practical joke up his sleeve.

"He’s prone to pushing jokes too far, which will have dangerous consequences across the series.

"But behind the banter lies a darker side and it soon becomes clear that Cheese’s manipulative edge is never far from the surface..."

How does Cheese know Mimi?

When Cheese arrives in the barracks and is introduced to 2-Section, it's immediately clear that he already knows Mimi (played by Amy-Leigh Hickman).

Although we're not told how the pair know each other, it's obvious they're not pleased to see each other.

Fans will be well aware that Mimi has been hiding something.

She has lied repeatedly about what her parents do for a living – and this has been picked up on by Prof (Nico Mirallegro).

Mimi also bizarrely pretended to call her parents when Georgie said she should speak to them.

What is she trying to cover up and is Cheese about to let the cat out of the bag?

For now, all we do know is that the new recruit is going to bring about dangerous consequences in the Our Girl series finale.

But will Mimi be at risk? Tune in to find out.

Our Girl is on BBC One, Tuesdays at 9pm
