Our Girl returns to BBC One this autumn for a second season, this time featuring the British Army on a posting in contemporary Kenya.

‘Two Section’ return to our screens for this African mission, with a new female medic at their centre; Lance Corporal Georgie Lane (Michelle Keegan), a brilliant and committed soldier who loves the adrenaline and adventure of her job.
