Full name: Michelle Elizabeth Keegan
DOB: 3 June 1987
Place of birth: Stockport, Manchester, England
Coronation Street star Michelle has won Sexiest Female at the British Soap Awards five years running.
She used to work in Selfridges, Manchester, and on the check-in desks at Manchester Airport.
As well as gracing the covers of FHM in March 2013, she also starred in the January 2011 issue, in the bath. Sexiest woman in “soap”, geddit?
While many actors and actresses endure long, Joey Tribbiani-like struggles to the top, Manc minx Michelle Keegan hit the jackpot almost immediately. She attended a grand total of two auditions before finding fame and instant sex-symbolhood as Corrie’s feisty Tina McIntyre: the first audition was for a part on Hollyoaks, for which the blind-and-unwise producers deemed her unsuitable.
With Tina making an instant impact on the Street, Michelle was soon setting the tabloids ablaze thanks to a string of high-profile romances with the likes of Hollyoaks’ Anthony Quinlan, Max George from out of The Wanted, and now Mark Wright from out of TOWIE. If that list of A-list lovers seems a little intimidating, don’t worry: she also went out with a totes-ripped male model by the name of Brad Howard. So anyone’s in with a chance!
