Michelle Keegan was left fearing for her life over the weekend when a vicious brawl broke out just inches away from her.

The 'Our Girl' actress frantically ran down the steps of 100 Wardour Club in London on Saturday (17.09.16) night when a mystery man attempted to lunge through security and get to her.

An onlooker told The Sun Online: "It looked like he was trying something and security was stopping him from either talking [to her] or getting a picture [with her]."

The security guards pinned the gentleman down as the 29-year-old beauty was whisked away by her protective pals.

However, it's not known whether the man - whose identity is not yet known - was with Michelle and her friends or if he was trying to get to the actress for a sinister reason.

Meanwhile, Michelle - who is married to presenter Mark Wright - has had a tough few months recently as she spent eight weeks in South Africa earlier this year filming her new war drama 'Our Girl'

She said of the experience: "It was emotionally draining and very tiring but I had the best time and I, obviously we were there for two months, thought I might get a bit homesick after a week but I'm not joking I loved every single second of it. It was a life experience for me but it was amazing."

However, Michelle - who portrays Lance Corporal Georgie Lane in the BBC One drama - believes shooting the new series has cured her fear of heights as she had to go up in a helicopter.

Speaking during a Facebook Live chat, she said recently: "We did (film) the helicopter (scenes) in the air, we were harnessed in and I'm actually quite scared of heights but I think after this I was fine with them. I wanted to go back up again."
