Our Girl is back with a new mis­sion…

Af­ter show­ing true grit to prove her­self in the last se­ries of Our Girl, Lance Cor­po­ral Ge­orgie Lane is back for three sep­a­rate mis­sions – and this week sees the start of a four-part run of the first one, which sees the Bri­tish Army medic head­ing to Nepal to as­sist in the re­lief ef­fort af­ter a se­ries of ter­ri­ble earth­quakes.

‘As the se­ries be­gins, we see Ge­orgie in Syria with Spe­cial Forces, then we cut to her get­ting a call from Cap­tain James [Ben Aldridge] ask­ing her to go to Nepal,’ says Michelle Kee­gan, who plays Ge­orgie. ‘She’s there to pro­vide med­i­cal sup­port and look af­ter the chil­dren.’

New ro­mance

At the end of the last se­ries, Ge­orgie re­jected both fi­ancé Jamie (Royce Pier­re­son) and old flame Elvis (Luke Pasqualino) to fo­cus on her ca­reer. How­ever, she soon meets a charm­ing lo­cal engi­neer,

Mi­lan (Rudi

Dhar­ma­lingam).

‘You’ll see old flames and new ro­mances this se­ries,’ says

Michelle. ‘It will be a roller­coaster, and there’ll be heart­break and joy. She has to work along­side Elvis again and she tells him they’re just mates, but the au­di­ence knows the two of them can never just be friends.’ The whole cast again at­tended a boot camp be­fore film­ing, to whip them into shape.

‘We spent a week do­ing med­i­cal train­ing, we even went to Sand­hurst to meet up with some of the army,’ says Michelle. ‘It re­ally gets you in the right frame of mind. The stunts this year are amaz­ing and I did a lot of them my­self, but some­times I wasn’t al­lowed, it was too risky.’
