Michelle Keegan is making the most of her South African life. The brunette beauty is currently filming her new BBC drama Our Girl but she made sure to take a break and share a racy selfie with her fans on Tuesday.

The HELLO! Online blogger uploaded a cheeky photo of her sunbathing. "Days when you finish work early! #internationalwomensday #pineapplehead," she wrote alongside the sunny snap.

Michelle is spending two months in South Africa

The 28-year-old, who is the new UK social ambassador for Revlon, is spending two months away from her new husband, Mark Wright, while filming the new drama. The happy couple, who have just spent their first Valentine's Day together as Mr and Mrs Wright, are accustomed to spending weeks apart.

In an exclusive interview with HELLO!, Michelle said: "We're sort of used to it. When Mark worked on Take Me Out: The Gossip he would be in Tenerife for three weeks at a time then home again for a week before flying out."

However, the loved up duo will be keeping in touch via FaceTime and Mark will be going out to visit his wife.

Michelle and Mark will celebrate their first wedding anniversary in May

"He's my best friend. I love that he's a gentleman. I'm feeling very lucky," the actress said. "There's nothing in my life that I would change. I have no regrets. I'm very happy with my work and personal life."

While the pair don't share any children together, the radio show host recently appeared on Loose Women, saying that he was under "pressure" from his mum to give her grandchildren.

"He was only joking," said Michelle. "And I know he says his mum wants to be a grandma, but to be fair my mum is saying exactly the same thing. The next question after you get married is, 'When are you having kids?' That's normal. And when the time comes it will be right – and I'm sure everyone will be excited for us."

Adding that 2015 "will be hard to top" because it was the year she tied the knot with Mark, in a wedding exclusively covered by HELLO! magazine, Michelle said: "This year will be totally different. I feel excited and I don't know what's going to happen after Our Girl."
