Former “Coronation Street” star Michelle Keegan has landed a starring role in BBC One’s drama “Our Girl”.

The new five-part series is about medics in the British Army. Keegan will play Corporal Georgie Lane, an army medic on a risky mission in Kenya, reported Daily Mirror.

“I’m a massive fan of the series so I can’t wait to be a part of it. It’s going to be a big but exciting ­challenge for me,” Keegan said.

A BBC spokesman added: “It won’t be an easy posting as she has to earn the love and trust of her fellow soldiers, and the greater respect of her commanding officer, while ­working alongside aid workers in the world’s biggest refugee camp.
