MICHELLE Keegan has teased fans with her latest TV project, introducing her new glamorous character.

The actress transformed into a 1950s nurse for the new BBC drama Ten Pound Poms, which starts this month.

Embracing vintage chic, Michelle looked incredible in a purple pleated dress that nipped her in at the waist.

She wore a pair of red-wine coloured heels and her long raven locks were pulled back in old Hollywood-style curls.

Michelle, 35, spent weeks in Australia last year filming the show which is due to be released on May 14.

Ten Pound Poms follows the lives of a group of people in post-war Britain who leave their home to start a new life down under.

The show is based on the Ten Pound Poms Scheme which allowed Brits to migrate to Australia in 1945 for just £10.

The scheme was introduced to boost the economy after the Second World War.

"1 week to go before Ten Pound Poms takes you back to 1956," Michelle wrote in the caption.

Struggling to contain their excitement, fans flocked to the comment section.
