Former Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan regrets taking part in daring photo shoots during her time in the office.
Michelle joined Corrie when she was only 20 and played the part of Tina McIntyre between 2008 and 2014.
At the time, she appeared in several children’s magazines, to stimulate the interest of the press for the show.
But now he is 33 years old, Michelle has spent time reflecting on her career in an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine, reports MEN.
Speaking of appearing in boys’ magazines, Michelle said, “It wasn’t something I necessarily really wanted to do. I remember feeling very shy because I was very young.
“But I thought it was part of being on TV.
“Now that I’m older, I realize that it’s OK to say no to something you’re not 100% satisfied with. You don’t have to do it because you think you have to do it.”
But Michelle says there was no pressure from Corrie.
He said, “I will say, this is not a reflection on Coronation Street.
“I had a brilliant network and team and the PR team was fabulous and it really took care of me and it was a different time then.
“Everyone did it at the time.”
Michelle also discussed the ongoing “unfair” questions she receives when a family starts with her husband Mark Wright.

He said: “A few years ago it didn’t bother me and I answered the question, but now I think” I don’t need to answer “because nobody knows what is going on behind closed doors.
“I remember when I finished Our Girl people were like ‘is it because you’re going to have a baby?’
“I know for sure that if Mark had finished a job, nobody would have asked him if he would have a baby.
“It’s not fair. It makes me feel frustrated.”
