Admitting that things will be relatively low-key amid the pandemic, Michelle continued: "I want to say [we do] something really rock and roll but it's not. I get brand new PJs on Christmas Eve. I wanted to say something cool but it's not."

Meanwhile, Michelle will no doubt be relishing some relaxing time at home after spending the past few months filming Brassic, a comedy set in the fictional East Lancashire town of Hawley.

"We have so much fun and I think you see it on screen. It's very organic. We all have such a great laugh filming," she said of the show. "We started filming again in September. Obviously, there's a lot of restrictions [due to Covid].

"A lot of people wearing PPE. Covid tests every two days. They are a bit [horrible]. You get used to them after a bit. You come into work, get your Covid test, go onto set. I got friction burns on my brain once when someone did it to me – really high up."

Asked whether she would like to return to Our Girl, Michelle replied: "I will never say never with Our Girl. I absolutely loved that job. It was a fantastic role for me, it was really challenging, not only was it physically challenging, but I learnt so much on that job about the military and the medical side as well.

"I really enjoyed it, but I felt it was the right time for me to move on, then. In future Georgie can come back, they have left the door open for Georgie."
