We don't blame you, Jess. We're right there with you...

Our Girl is quickly turning into our favourite thing ever and we’re not ashamed to admit that we’re totally obsessed.

Despite being gripped by the explosive humanitarian mission and tear-jerking love story that’s developing, it’s actress Michelle Keegan that’s got everyone talking.

Critics and fans have all showered the former Corrie star with praise for her flawless performance as Lance Corporal Georgie Lane in the BBC hit drama alongside co-star, Luke Pasqualino.

But they’re not the only ones, as it turns out that Michelle’s sister-in-law, and former The Only Way Is Essex star, Jess Wright is also a massive fan of the show and NEVER misses an episode.

Gushing over Michelle’s performance, Jess told The Sun Online: ‘It’s such a great programme and Michelle is doing such an amazing job in it. I’m really enjoying it.

‘Michelle’s totally owned it – I’m so proud of her.’


Since returning from filming in South Africa, Michelle has been spending a lot of time with husband Mark Wright and his family.

She recently celebrated Jess’ 31st birthday in London by partying at the exclusive 100 Wardour club, and was pictured enjoying a big Wright dinner in Chigwell at the weekend along with Mark’s parents Carol and Mark.

Considering how busy Mich’ has been recently, it’s great to see her enjoying some down time with the family.

Now excuse us while we go and mentally prepare ourselves for tonight’s episode of Our Girl.
