Michelle Keegan is "covered in bruises" from filming the new series of "Our Girl".
The 30-year-old actor has spent the past three months in Napal, South Africa and the Malaysian jungle shooting the forthcoming instalment of the army drama but she has come away with purple patches on her skin from performing her own stunts.
Speaking to the Glasgow Evening Times newspaper, she said: "It's been a lot more physically demanding than the first one, definitely.
"There are a lot more stunts involved, more Army-based scenes and a lot more running, which I'm not very good at. I've been covered in bruises."
But it wasn't just the physical challenge that wore Michelle down, as the brunette beauty has admitted she packed her slippers and a supply of traditional teabags to help her feel at home while filming for season three because she knew she'd feel homesick.
She explained to the publication: "I wanted to feel at home so I've brought Yorkshire Tea bags in my suitcase as well as my slippers."
Fans have been patiently waiting for the third series to drop since the second instalment came to an end a year ago, but they won't have to wait too much longer as Michelle will reprise her role as Lance Corporal Georgie Lane on October 10.
Alongside a 15-second clip posted on its official Twitter account of Michelle in character, the BBC wrote: "Corporal Georgie Lane is reporting for duty. @michkeegan returns in Series 3 of #OurGirl. Starts Tuesday 10th October. 9pm. @BBCOne. (sic)"
Not much is known about the forthcoming series but Georgie will be deployed on three separate missions alongside her ex-boyfriend Elvis Hart (Luke Pasqualino).
The last series saw Georgie jilt her fiance Dr Jamie Cole (Royce Pierreson) at the altar when she realised she was still in love with her former flame Elvis - who is part of the Special Forces - after he saved her life when she was helped captive by the Taliban.
Although the pair didn't get back together after their romantic moment back in Manchester, fans are no doubt hoping that there's a happy ending for them this time.
