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.

“Kenya will be full of surprises that will challenge Georgie professionally and personally.”

The first series followed Molly Dawes, a medic in Afghanistan played by Lacey Turner.

Turner won’t be continuing with the series due to her “EastEnders” commitments.

Filming of the second series of “Our Girl” starts in January, and it is due to hit screens in late 2016.

Keegan recently tied the knot with former TOWIE star Mark Wright.
