Michelle Keegan In FHM: 'I Don't Think I'm Sexy' (PICS)

She might be regularly voted the country's sexiest soap star, but 'Coronation Street' babe Michelle Keegan has revealed she still doesn't see herself as 'sexy', although we have a feeling thousands will disagree after seeing these new pics of her in her swimsuit.

The actress shows off her enviable curves in a white one-piece in the new edition of FHM as she admits she doesn't think she's a 'typical sexy girl'.

Michelle - who is dating former 'TOWIE' star Mark Wright - told the magazine: “I’ve changed a lot in the last couple of years. I’m comfortable in my own skin now, where I used to be quite shy.

“It’s really flattering, and even now when I win an award like that, it’s just unbelievable, because I think, “What the hell do they see?”, because I’m not like your typical sexy girl. I don’t think of me and think of sexy.”

The 'Corrie' star - who hails from Manchester - also revealed she'd love to cover up her curves and work on her posh accent with an acting role in a period costume drama.

"“I’m working on it at the moment actually! I really want to do a period drama one day, I’d love that. Something like The Tudors or Downton Abbey.”

And despite dating another celebrity, Michelle also revealed another celeb crush - 'X Factor' stars Union J.

“I like Union J. Though I know they’re really young. I think they’re really cute! They’re really cute! But I forget how young they are. Someone did turn round to me and say, “Michelle, you do know they’re like 19?””

She laughed: “I don’t want to be known as a cougar! I’m 25, so Union J would definitely be a bit cougarish.”

The full interview appears in this month’s FHM Magazine, on sale on Thursday. A behind-the-scenes video from Michelle’s shoot can be seen at
