Michelle Keegan has signed up for a new series of Our Girl.

The actress (31) will return as Georgie Lane in the fourth instalment of the BBC One drama.

Keegan, who is up for a National Television Award for her performance in the show, said: "Being in Our Girl has been one of the highlights of my career so far. I feel very lucky to be part of the show and I'm really excited that it's coming back.

"The audience response has been so positive and I think Georgie is a character who resonates with viewers.

"I absolutely love playing the role. Be prepared for another incredible series - Georgie's still got unfinished business."

The six-part series will see Georgie promoted to Sergeant and returning to Afghanistan "to face her own fears".

Mona Qureshi, executive producer for BBC One, said: "(Writer and creator) Tony Grounds' storylines for this series bring fresh and exciting challenges for Georgie as she battles personal demons and for 2 Section, who have some new members to accommodate."
