Michelle Keegan looks world's away from glam Essex life as she's seen for the first time on set of drama in Australia | The Sun

MICHELLE Keegan looked worlds apart from her glamorous Essex self on the set of new BBC drama Ten Pound Poms as she filmed 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.

The former Corrie and Our Girl actress, 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, 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!"
