Michelle Keegan must have been taking career advice from her new boyfriend Mark Wright, as she’s admitted she would consider following in his footsteps and appearing on I’m A Celebrity.

The Coronation Street actress split from The Wanted singer Max George last year and hooked up with TOWIE’s Mark recently. He starred in the ITV reality TV show back in 2011 and seemingly has been praising it’s affects on his career.

Fellow Corrie star Helen Flanagan was one of the jungle campmates in 2012 and while she may not have popular with her fellow celebs or the public, she did last much longer than most people predicted.

In her latest shoot for FHM magazine, Michelle admitted that she was surprised by and proud of Helen’s achievement and explained:

”I am very proud of Helen for what she’s achieved, because at the beginning I didn’t think she could have done it, so for her that’s a massive achievement. I wouldn’t say I would do it now, but I’d never say never to anything.”

While Keegan could see herself living with rats, spiders and snakes in the future, she insisted she won’t ever be on the lineup for a show like ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ or ‘Dancing On Ice’, because she hates the thought of performing for a live audience and a panel of judges.

The whole thing is just too scary for the brunette beauty and she added:

”I’d be nervous to do something like ‘Strictly’ or the ice dancing one, just because it’s in front of a live audience. Plus, I can’t dance, so that would be embarrassing.”

Keegan revealed that although she is dating Wright at the minute, she’s not above the odd celebrity crush like the rest of us. Some of her choices are weird though and the actress confessed that she has a bit of a thing for Keith Lemon….it takes all kinds!


”I’ve got a soft spot for Keith Lemon. And Tom Hardy, for sure. Oh, and I like Union J. though I know they’re really young. I think they’re really cute! But I forget how young they are,” she said.

”Someone did turn round to me and say, Michelle, ‘You do know they’re, like, 19?’ I don’t want to be known as a cougar! I’m 25, so Union J would definitely be a bit cougarish.”
