Michelle Keegan certainly stole the show at the official screening for Our Girl - but we wouldn't expect anything else!

Michelle plays the leading role in the new series of the BBC One drama, which premieres on Wednesday (7 September), and she looked seriously sophisticated as she joined her co-stars for a preview of the first episode.

The cast gathered in Manchester for the screening, which happens to be Michelle's hometown, and they were all snapped together before watching the show.

Michelle opted to wear all-black for the occasion, choosing an off-the-shoulder lace top and skinny jeans. She topped off her ensemble with cute ankle boots and wore her newly-dyed brunette hair loose.

In the new series of Our Girl, Michelle has taken the helm as leading lady following Lacey Turner's departure. The former Coronation Street star is playing a new character, Corporal Georgie Lane, and she spent two months filming in South Africa earlier this year.

Speaking to the Daily Express about being away from her husband Mark Wright while on location, she said: "There's Skype. And FaceTime, which I use all the time. Mark came over, as did my mum and my brother. I was in contact the whole time I was there. So it wasn't that bad."
