Michelle Keegan has reportedly landed a role in a brand new six-part series that follow British people leaving Britain in 1956 to head on an adventure
It is said the Brassic actress, 34, has jetted off to Australia to film a new BBC drama from the team behind Sex Education.
Called Ten Pound Poms, it follows a group of British people leaving Britain in 1956 to go on an adventure half-way across the world.
“Michelle has always had one big dream, which is appearing in a period drama and Ten Pound Poms will let her dip her toe in those past times,” a source close to Michelle told The Sun.
Brassic screenwriter Danny Brocklehurst is behind the show and confessed the six-part series is a ‘big, bold character piece about what it means to start again.’
“The assisted migration programme is a little-known part of British and Australian history but offers endless stories about the people who travelled to the other side of the world in search of a better life,” he told the publication.
Mirror have contacted Michelle’s representatives for comment.
