Michelle Keegan still not used to fame 14 years after Coronation Street debut

Michelle Keegan has admitted she still hasn't got used to fame despite years of being an A-list star.

The brunette beauty has been in the public eye since she first made a splash as Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street back in 2008.

But she told The Sun that her life outside her career hasn't changed all that much and that she still hasn't totally adjusted to the limelight.

"Even now, 15 years on, you never get used to being famous," said the star.

"One minute I walked out of the Coronation Street gates and no one knew who I was. Then, as soon as my first scenes were on screen, I remember walking out the gates and getting stopped and asked for an autograph."

Stockport-born Michelle – who is married to TOWIE's Mark Wright – said at that point she "had no idea how to sign an autograph".

The 35-year-old actress also said her life isn't hugely different now that she's a star, as she still has the same friends and goes to the same places.

Since appearing on the cobbles, Michelle has been in shows like Our Girl, Brassic and Tina And Bobby.

She is now starring in new drama Ten Pound Poms.

However, the stunning TV actress told The Guardian that she doesn't have a "masterplan".

"I just live every day as it comes," she explained. "Hopefully I can keep doing what I'm doing."

Discussing her wish list, she said she would like to do some theatre as it's very much "in the moment" compared to shooting television.

"With TV, there's always a chance to reshoot a scene, make a creative change, but with theatre there's no safety net," said the star.
