Yep. It’s goodbye to Mich’s glam red carpet looks and hello to camouflage print, heavy hats, backpacks, lace-up boots and a make-up free complexion.

Of course, she still looks incredible with scraped-back hair and a natural face. *Sigh*.

Mich is set to star as a highly-trained Corporal in the hit show, replacing EastEnders lady Lacey Turner. She jetted to South Africa last week to begin the shoot, which is expected to last a couple of months.

This means she’s had to leave her husband Mark Wright at home in Essex. Sad times.

Mark has previously spoken about their separation, telling the Daily Mirror: ‘I’m so proud of Michelle – this is a great opportunity and I would never stand in her way.

Michelle Keegan is currently thousands of miles away from husband Mark Wright

 

 

‘I’m going to miss her – we’ve never been apart for so long so it will be difficult. But it’ll be fine, I’m going to try and get out there when I can.’

However, it seems as though he’s already having a tough time without his other half by his side.

Mark Wright has been ill this week. Poor lamb 🙁

 

He shared an Instagram photo of himself looking miserable on the sofa earlier this week, captioning it: ‘My feel sorry for myself, ill face !! 2 Disney films down. Currently watching parent trap !! [sic].’

Aw. Maybe a Skype sesh with Michelle will cheer you up, Mark?!
