Michelle Keegan Talks Filming Sex Scenes: 'Afterwards I Asked, 'Is That It?''

She makes an appearance in the new series of 'Plebs'.

Michelle Keegan has been flexing her acting muscles ever since bidding farewell to the ‘Coronation Street’ cobbles, and she’s now spoken about how she got on while recording her first ever sex scene.

And while most actors complain about the awkwardness or heavy cringe factor involved in filming a raunchy scene, it seems that Michelle’s foray, in the new series of ITV2 comedy ‘Plebs’, was a bit of a walk in the park.

She tells The Sun: It was fine, actually. I was playing it with Joel [Fry] and he was so lovely.

“It was one of the first scenes we did. It was nerve-racking but he was so relaxed and calm that it helped me. Then afterwards I was like, ‘Is that it?’”

The scene sees Michelle’s character, Ursula, asking a man if she can “f*** him in the cloister”, though their tryst ends up extinguishing a sacred flame.
