TV star ‘Michelle Keegan’ attends meet and greet at Pussycats night club, Telford.
In late 2007, in only her second audition, Keegan was offered the chance to play the part of Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street, and accepted the role. She left the show in May 2014. In 2009, she went on Stephen Mulhern‘s Anonymous, a prank show on ITV. On 14 June 2009, she made her radio debut co-hosting the BBC Radio 1 programme The Official Chart.
Keegan was on the cover of FHM in January 2011, and placed number 30 and number 26 in their 100 Sexiest Women poll for 2010 and 2011, respectively. She would then appear in FHM again in March 2013 and was placed at number four in the 2013 poll.
Keegan joined Coronation Street in 2008, beating around 900 other people who were also trying out for the part. She played Tina McIntyre until the character’s death in late May 2014. Keegan’s last episode on the soap was aired on 27 May 2014.
She later flew out to South Africa to film a special film for Coronation Street, and starred in the 2009 Red Dwarf Easter special. In June 2014, she will go on a European Tour to perform as Tinkerbell in Peter Pan.
