Michelle Keegan has finally revealed what she’s been up to since filming her last ‘Coronation Street’ scenes by announcing plans to release her debut fashion collection with Lipsy.
The ‘Corrie’ actress shared the news via Twitter, explaining that she’s “so excited” to finally share the news with everyone, adding that the collection will be available from July 2014.
Michelle will be acting as both a designer and brand ambassador for Lipsy in her new role and she’s also revealed her reasons for moving into fashion.
”I have been wearing Lipsy since my teens. I have always admired their collections over the years,” she says. “Their pieces are always bang on trend, are made with good quality materials, and I always feel great when I wear Lipsy.”
The actress describes her debut collection as “classic, unfussy and feminine” and Michelle’s fiancée Mark Wright has already tweeted his support, writing: “Congratulations darling”.
Michelle officially left ‘Coronation Street’ earlier this month and the cast were recently seen filming her character Tina McIntyre’s funeral scenes.
Let's just hope all those years as chavvy Tina in the soap haven't affected Michelle's sense of style.
Michelle’s Lipsy collection will be available online and in Lipsy stores from 3 July 2014.
