The actress finally left ‘Coronation Street’ earlier this month in a murder storyline that had the whole nation talking, which saw her character Tina McIntyre beaten to death with a lead pipe by Rob Donovan after falling off a roof.
Now she’s left ‘Corrie’, Michelle says she wants to focus on more serious acting, telling the Daily Star: “I’m currently busy having elocution lessons and acting lessons and want to be taken seriously as an actress.
“I think it is important to follow up 'Corrie' with a good acting role.”
She went on to say that she’d love a part in the series ‘Game Of Thrones’, famous for its graphic violence and sex scenes, though Michelle claims she wouldn’t have any qualms in going naked on screen.
We think there’d be plenty of male viewers happy if she were to strip off on screen, as she was recently named the sexiest Brit in FHM’s annual 100 Sexiest list, with only ‘American Hustle’ actress Jennifer Lawrence ranking higher than her on the overall chart.
After leaving the soap world behind her, Michelle is also indulging her love of fashion, and has a clothing line coming out for Lipsy later this year.
