Wednesday night's episode of Our Girl saw Michelle's character, Georgie Lane, being successfully rescued by her former flame after being kidnapped.

Mark shared his thoughts on Twitter:

And he wasn't alone in his praise of Michelle - fans and viewers were also bowled over.

During a recent interview on BBC Radio 1 with Nick Grimshaw, Michelle touched on tabloid reports about her private life, following speculation over her marriage to Mark.

She said: "It's so annoying, the thing is I don't even read it any more, it just winds me up. It is just negativity and I can't be bothered with it."

The hashtag Our Girl started trending during Wednesday night's episode, and Michelle was overjoyed.

A few celebrities are also Our Girl fans:

Well done, Michelle!
