ZOE Lucker will swap the glitzy outfits of Footballers' Wives for combat gear when she joins ITV Army drama Bombshell.
The blonde, famed for her role as Tanya Turner, will also turn brunette for the part.
The eight-part drama will be set in Bosnia on a British base.
Zoe, from Lindley, said: "You'll get to see me running around in khaki jackets and combat pants. I'm also going brunette. It's my way of saying goodbye to Tanya."
Filming for the programme, to be made by Footballers' Wives creator Shed Productions, starts in the next few weeks.
