Our Girl

9PM, BBC1

Michelle Kee­gan re­turns for a sec­ond out­ing as Army medic Lance Cor­po­ral Ge­orgie Lane (right) in the se­ries that puts en­joy­ment over re­al­ism.

She’s cer­tainly in for an ac­tion-packed start as we re­join her in Syria, no less, dur­ing a dan­ger­ous mis­sion to res­cue a lo­cal politi­cian. Then, be­fore she’s even had time to have a cof­fee back home, Ge­orgie is whisked off to Nepal to help out with the re­lief ef­forts fol­low­ing a dev­as­tat­ing earth­quake. There, dishy Nepalese engi­neer Mi­lan (Rudi Dhar­ma­lingam) helps to take her mind off the suf­fer­ing – be­fore tragedy strikes.

It’s Ital­ian week in episode seven.

And with tem­per­a­tures in the tent soar­ing to record lev­els, it’s even harder than nor­mal for our con­tes­tants to keep their cool.
