Dressed in her army camouflage, the brunette beauty was snapped resting her arm on Ben’s back while doubled over laughing.

She dropped her head on her pal’s shoulder at one point when the giggles overcame her.

The 30-year-old seemed to be having a fun day on set as she flashed a huge smile while walking to her next scene.

She was also snapped getting her makeup touched up between takes.

The ex soap favourite has spoken out in the past about the firm friendships that have formed between the Our Girl cast and crew.

In June, they surprised her with a 30th birthday celebration on set, lavishing the actress with balloons and a decadent chocolate cake covered in profiteroles and chocolate shards.

Michelle told fans at the time: “Although I wasn’t at home yesterday and missed my family and friends. The Our Girl cast and production team helped to make my birthday so special. Thank you so much… Forever grateful!”

Michelle has reprised the role of Corporal Georgie Lane for the third series of Our Girl, while Ben is back as Captain James.

The twelve-part series kicks off later this year with Georgie on a relief mission in Nepal after a devastating earthquake.


Michelle has spent the last two months filming Our Girl in Nepal and South Africa and is no doubt keen to get back home to husband Mark Wright, whom she’s been missing while away.

He’s been splitting his time between UK and LA, where he’s showbiz correspondent for TV show Extra.

It was thought filming on Our Girl had wrapped on July 12 when Michelle’s co-star Luke Pasqualino shared an image of them to Instagram with the caption: “That’s a WRAP in Cape Town!”

He added: “Very excited for you guys to see what we’ve gone with season 3… watch this space!”

However, it seems while filming has wrapped for Luke, there’s still work for Michelle and her other co-stars to do.

Michelle admitted in June that she’s been missing home and Mark after being away for so long.

During a Facebook Live Q&A with Revlon, she said: “The hardest part [of my job] is probably not seeing my family and friends for the time that I’m away filming.

“Although we FaceTime all the time, I’m in a lucky position I know that, but you miss home a little bit.”

Mark has visited his wife in South Africa including back in May, when he flew out to mark their second wedding anniversary.

He told Sunday Brunch of long-distance romance: “I think you make it work. It keeps it exciting because you get to travel the world together.

“You just have to make the time for each other, put it in the diary and make sure you spend a lot of time together.”

The ex Towie star added to The Mirror: “When we do see each other it is really special, although when I visit her on set she does have to work.

“But just hanging out together and being with each other is great.

“She really is the most incredible woman, I love her so much.”
