Michelle Keegan is unrecognisable as she transforms into a 1950s nurse for Australian drama | The Sun

MICHELLE Keegan looked unrecognisable as a nurse for new BBC drama Ten Pound Poms as she filmed in Australia.

She shared a photo while working on the six-part period drama for the first time on Instagram.

Michelle swapped fancy frocks and gymwear for more conservative garments including a nurse's apron, a blue dress and a white shirt.

She looked worlds away from her time on Corrie playing barmaid Tina and in Our Girl as army medic Georgie.

Her latest series tells the story of emigrating Brits who travelled Down Under for a new life only to find things a bit less cheery than they'd hoped.

Dressed in traditional 50s attire, and with her usually free-flowing hair in a slick style, Michelle certainly looked the part.

The TV star has been exploring the north of Australie when not filming.

She recently posted a series of pictures set to a soundtrack of her adventure on Instagram, featuring waterfalls, trains, boomerangs and acres of lush green scenery.

Michelle wrote: "Last weekend I had some time off work so decided to explore more of Australia and took myself on a little solo trip north to Cairns!

"Where I ate, drank, met koalas (yes I bought the photo 😂) took a train journey through the rainforest, wandered through the heritage markets and asked a stranger to take a picture of me.

"I had the most amazing time. Yes travelling alone can be scary but life’s too short to let that fear get in your way!"
