MICHELLE Keegan is bringing the glamour in a first look at her new BBC drama Ten Pound Poms.

The former Coronation Street actress, 35, is dressed in an elegant retro frock for the show's trailer.

Ten Pound Poms follows a group of Brits who leave the country in the promise of a better life.

It's set in a dreary 1950s post-war Britain that was still experiencing food shortages.

But for just ten pounds Britons are offered a new identity down under in Australia.

Michelle plays the role of a nurse called Kate who is one of the people to jump at the chance of the once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

The cast is also made up of Game of Thrones star Faye Marsay and Strike Back's Warren Brown.

A teaser released by the Beeb shows the group board the boat and set sail for sunnier skies.

However, once they arrive, they soon discover their new reality is not what they signed up for.

Warren's character Terry says: "It's like a prison or a war camp" while Michelle's character mutters: "They lied to us."

They're faced with poor living conditions at their new home – a migrant hostel in the Australian outback.

It's not the only thing they'll have to endure as it becomes apparent the locals' attitude towards the newly landed immigrants isn't so welcoming.

Ten Pound Poms will premiere on BBC One and iPlayer at 9pm on Sunday 14th May, airing weekly on BBC One, with all episodes available on iPlayer immediately.
