Last year, former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright took part in the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, and ahead of the show’s debut last autumn, it was rumoured that his fiancé, ex-Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan may have signed up too.
However, that didn’t transpire to be the case, but it was believed that she only turned down an offer from the show’s bosses because she was too busy filming her role in new drama, Ordinary Lies.
So could we then see Michelle taking part in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing? Well, apparently not, given that watching Mark on the show last year has evidently put Michelle right off ever taking part.
Speaking to the Radio Times, the lovely Michelle said, “It was so horrible watching Mark…”
She then explained, “Mark’s a more confident person than me, and I remember seeing how nervous he was and thinking, ‘If he’s like that, I just couldn’t do it’.”
But might we at least expect to see Michelle and Mark throwing some ballroom shapes when they have the first dance at their wedding? That’s a no too apparently.
Michelle said, “Everyone assumes we’re going to do something choreographed, but we’re not.
“I couldn’t do that anyway because I’m rubbish.”
The loved-up pair haven’t as yet set the date for their wedding, and right now, they’re busy enjoying a luxury holiday in the Caribbean.
Michelle has been sharing pictures of herself and Mark on her Twitter and Instagram accounts, and we have to say, they’ve made us well jel…
But back to Michelle and her role in Ordinary Lies, and the drama debuts on BBC1 tonight at 9pm. The drama follows the story of how seemingly unimportant lies affect the lives of workers at a car showroom.
In it, Michelle stars alongside Sally Lindsay, another former Coronation Street star, and ex-EastEnders actress, Jo Joyner. Comedian Jason Manford also stars in the dram, as do Max Beesley and Mackenzie Crook.
