Michelle Keegan is seen for the first time on set of new drama in Australia

Pictured working on the six-part period drama for the first time, Michelle swapped fancy frocks and gymwear for more conservative garments.

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

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.

And things are currently cooler than some might expect in Oz, with Michelle keeping warming in a thick coat between takes.

L'ex Corrie e Our Girl attrice, 35, has been exploring the north of the country when not filming.

She recently posted a series of pictures set to a soundtrack of her adventure on Instagram, featuring waterfalls, treni, 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, Bevuto, 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!”
