Micheele Keegan's BBC1 drama Our Girl returned to a mixed reception on Tuesday evening as some viewers were left disappointed by the storyline.

The former Coronation Street star returned as army medic Georgie Lane as her platoon were sent out to Nepal to deal with the aftermath of an earthquake.

Dozens of viewers online complained over the lack of action involved in the first episode of the new series while others were not too keen on one of the new characters.

The cocksure Maisie Richards joined as a new recruit and Georgie’s mentee.

Julie Cleveley tweeted: “absolutely appalling… new girl is so OTT! Storyline is sooo bad!!.”
