Michelle Keegan's ex Max George has mocked her over her naked picture scandal.

The 'Coronation Street' star was forced to deny that a topless picture that appeared on her Instagram account was of her.

Despite her claims, The Wanted singer was quick to make a jibe at his ex-fiancee, writing on Twitter: "Someone's made a tit of themselves."

He deleted the message six seconds later (perhaps he was scared of the wrath of Michelle's current beau, Mark Wright?), but it was screengrabbed by a number of Tweeters.

Earlier on Friday, Michelle blamed the topless snap on a pal playing a prank, tweeting to say: "Phahahahahahahahaha @hmonners I'm gonna absolutely KILL u!!!! I'm CHANGING MY PASSWORD!! #touché u gave as good a u got! ;)"

She added: "Twitters going crazy! ... Sorry to disappoint guys, but they're not mine! Hahahahahaha!!!!! #Brilliant x."

Michelle and Max called off their engagement in April last year, and split for good a few months later amid rumours the singer cheated on her.
