The actress sat down for an interview on The Jonathan Ross Christmas Show where she discussed her love for her character, why she decided to leave the show and the challenges of starring in a military themed series.
"I will never say never with Our Girl. I absolutely loved that job," she said. "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."
Fans will be delighted to know Michelle hinted that Georgie could return one day. She said: "In the future, Georgie can come back, they have left the door open for Georgie."
Michelle joined Our Girl in 2016 for the show's second series after Lacey Turner, who initially starred in the feature length pilot episode and the first series as Molly Dawes, departed the show.
In January 2020 Michelle announced her departure and she confirmed the fourth series, which premiered in March 2020, would be her last. The BBC later confirmed Our Girl would not return for a fifth series.
Michelle said: "I've done it for four seasons, I was going away from home quite a lot. I was away for four months at a time, the year before that I was away for eight months.
"I was so lucky [to travel]. It's hard work and long days. Sometimes we're working six day weeks and it is very challenging".
"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.
"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."
Michelle is joined by Bradley Walsh, Barney Walsh, Sir Mo Farrah Emily Atack, Kevin Bridges and Jess Glynne
The Jonathan Ross Christmas Show airs Thursday, 24th December at 10pm on ITV.
