Where is Our Girl filmed in South Africa?

In series four of Our Girl Michelle Keegan returns for a final time to play Private Georgie Lane.

The new six-part series will see Georgie promoted to Sergeant and returning to Afghanistan "to face her own fears".

However, the scenes were filmed in South Africa, just like the first two seasons of the show were.

Locations such as Franschhoek and Cape Town in the Western Cape of South Africa provided the perfect landscape to replicate the look of Afghanistan.

And many shots filmed in dustier, desert-like terrain just 20 minutes outside of Cape Town.

Executive Producer Caroline Skinner explained: "We used the mountains of the wine region, which are very similar to Helmand Province for Afghanistan.”
