Michelle Keegan's often hailed as one of the world's most beautiful women so when she appeared on Radio 1's Breakfast Show this week, Nick Grimshaw had to ask: does being so gorgeous limit your acting roles?

The 29-year-old laughed at Nick's question and insisted: "No!"

Discussing her latest role in BBC One's Our Girl, she said: "I like all the gritty stuff and the fact I get stripped back. In Our Girl, I couldn't wear any make-up because you can't in the army.

"They don't wake up at five in the morning and think, 'Oh, I'll put on some blusher and a bit of lip gloss.' It was liberating. I had to walk around with greasy hair all the time!"

Michelle filmed Our Girl in South Africa and Manchester earlier this year, then immediately jumped into work on ITV drama Tina and Bobby, which just finished shooting last month.

Now, she's having a break before getting her teeth into a new project, which she's hoping will be as action-packed as her role as Corporal Georgie Lane in Our Girl.

"I think I'd love to do action again," said Michelle. "I loved that aspect of the job and I'd never done it before. Our Girl is very actioney, very full on, whereas Tina and Bobby is a period drama, so one minute I was in the 60s then I went to the 80s and it was very relationship led."

Michelle also spoke about rumours she's off to Hollywood, saying that's definitely not true but she wouldn't say no if anyone offered!

"I would like to be the badass Bond girl, that would be so cool," she added. "That's, like, the dream job for any woman, I think. A Bond woman!"
