This series marks Michelle's last as Georgie, and although her replacement it yet to be announced, the actress had a few words of wisdom for the future recruit. Speaking to HELLO! and other reporters, the 32-year-old explained: "Just get stuck in and you'll enjoy it." She added: "I think it's a really daunting job because you're representing the military and you want to get it right. I think once you get stuck in, it becomes an amazing job. And you get so much out of it as well for yourself. So yeah, just get involved and enjoy it."

The actress also revealed what she will miss the most about playing the role. "I'm really going to miss Georgie. I think she and the show sort of helped me grow as a person and I'm going to miss the fact that she's quite feisty and the fact that she was really independent."
