She might be a bona fide sex symbol, but 'Coronation Street' star Michelle Keegan has admitted she's embarrassed people see her that way.

The 25-year-old actress - who plays Tina MacIntyre in the ITV soap - also admitted that she couldn't understand why she was awarded The Sun's Cleavage of the Year earlier this year because she keeps her assets covered up!

She told new! magazine: "It was a bit embarrassing. It is also flattering. The thing is, I don't wear tops that show them off much... Mum laughed and said, 'You don't get that from me, girl.' [My parents] think it's funny and Mum jokes about it a lot."

And despite her killer body, Michelle claims she doesn't obsess about her weight.

"I started going out more and I think, as you get older, you have to watch what you eat more. You have to keep on top of it."
