‘Ordinary Lies’ debuts later this month, and Michelle plays Tracy, a party-loving car sales dealership receptionist whose boyfriend convinces her to smuggle drugs.
Ahead of the drama’s premiere, Michelle’s heaped praise on ‘Corrie’, telling The Mirror: “‘Corrie’ made me a better actress, it was an amazing platform.
“You go in day in, day out for 12 hours and I had amazing storylines in ‘Coronation Street’ so I do think it gave me the experience to go on and do other things.
“I got a few scripts but this was the one that I really wanted.
“I left the audition and I said to myself that I had to get that part, I fell in love with it.”
Michelle left ‘Corrie’ last year, when her character Tina McIntyre was killed off.
In the months since, the actress has been busy trying her hand at fashion designing for Lispy, and planning her wedding to former ‘TOWIE’ star Mark Wright.
