Michelle and her co-stars have faced some harsh criticism of the new series, despite the second winning huge praise from viewers and critics alike.

Last week's episode was met with a tepid response as fans took to Twitter to voice concern that the quality of the BBC show has plummeted, with users branding the programme 'disappointing and shocking'.

The storyline to infuriate viewers saw Corporal Georgie find love with new character Milan, played by Rudi Dhamralingam - shortly before return of her ex - Elvis.

Yet now, fans have moved on and are rooting for the duo to unite, with fans writing: 'the chemistry between Elvis and Georgie. What a lucky girl Masie was... Ooosh absolutely outstanding all of you! and that Elvis & Georgie chemistry amazing...

Tough times: Swarming Twitter, users were lauding the actors for their performances, yet also urging their characters, Corporal Georgie Lane and Elvis respectively, to reunite despite Elvis leaving her at the altar in the last series

Earlier in the month, Our Girl viewers lashed out at the long-awaited first episode  due to 'embarrassing' camerawork and Michelle's 'unrealistic' appearance.

One scene in particular riled eagle-eyed viewers, who insisted the Nepalese earthquake was hugely unconvincing due to the fact the camera merely 'wobbled' while the rest stayed still.

Michelle came under fire for her famously stunning appearance as she was accused of 'wearing foundation, mascara & painted eyebrow' despite being on the field.

Fans remain purturbed as Twitter was swarmed with messages reading: 'This years #OurGirl is dog... This series of #OurGirl is disappointing... The acting and script of Our girl is absolutely shockingly s**te...

Michelle won huge praise last year when she scooped the role of Lance Corporal Georgie Lane in the BBC drama, having taken over from Lacey Turner, who played Private Molly Dawes in 2013's series one. 

Michelle's return to Our Girl comes after she admitted to having no choice but to star in season three as she had signed a contract before any confirmation of another installment.

Speaking on Nick Grimshaw's Radio 1 Show, she discussed the difficulty of seven months away from husband Mark Wright, while admitting she was forced to carry her seven and a half stone weight and suffering horrific bruising during stunts. 

For any actress, the chance to star in such a successful drama is a dream, yet after signing the contract without knowledge of a new series or plans for a 12 episodes as opposed to series two's five, she was left with no choice but to reprise the role.

She said: 'I wasn't 100% there would be another series but I signed the option for there to be another. Obviously the first time it was for five episodes but this time it was for 12 so it's overly doubled.

'I didn't know that at the time either. It's been a long, long filming schedule. I was away for three months last time and this time I was in South Africa for three months and then I had three weeks off then I was in Malaysia for three months.

'So over all I was away for seven months. It was a long time being away from home. I had to do it, the contract was signed. Book me a flight!'
