Coronation Street: Michelle Keegan Wants Cheryl Cole As Her Big Sister

Michelle Keegan has given her thumbs up to Cheryl Cole appearing on Coronation Street as her big sister.

The former X Factor judge has revealed she is a huge fan of the ITV1 soap and of Michelle's character Tina McIntyre, and the actress admitted she would "love" it if bosses invited the singer onto the show.

"Oh my God, I would love that! That would be amazing, yeah!" she told Star.

"I've seen her at dos and stuff, I haven't actually gone over and said hello, though."

Michelle said that Tina's single status doesn't last too long: "Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain) and Tina are finally getting together in the new year. Their relationship has been a slow-burner and a will-they-won't-they sort of thing.

"It's something the viewers have been waiting for and they do get together in the new year."

The 24-year-old added that her favourite storyline so far has been the tragic passing of screen dad Joe McIntyre (Reece Dinsdale).

"I know it sounds really grim but probably when her dad Joe died. It was a big storyline for me and I worked with numerous characters, and it was a chance to show every emotion possible. I really enjoyed it," she said.
