Updated: 

Michelle Keegan has got fans all excited about her upcoming drama Our Girl at a red carpet tonight for the series launch.

The former Coronation Street star is set to feature in the BBC programme, which starred another soap actress - EastEnders' Lacey Turner - when it first aired in 2014.

Glamorous Michelle showed off her new blonde hairdo at the Mayfair Hotel in London, where she turned up to launch the new army drama for BBC One.

She kept her outfit simple in monochrome, wearing a black tuxedo jacket and skinny trousers, a low-cut white cami, and nude sandals.

Michelle and her husband Mark Wright had been rumoured to be on the rocks recently as they hadn't been seen in public together much, but she proudly flashed her wedding ring at tonight's event, quashing any gossip.

In Our Girl, Michelle plays British army medic Corporal Georgie Lane, who develops a very close friendship with a Special Forces officer even though she has a boyfriend back home.

Our Girl airs on BBC One on September 7.
