Michelle Keegan is worried she will be too nervous to appear in 'Coronation Street's live episode.
The sexy actress fears she will ruin the special episode - which is being organised in celebration of the show's 50th anniversary this December - by doing something rash and panicking in front of the cameras. Michelle told the Daily Star newspaper: "There's a real buzz on set about it and there have been loads of meetings about what will happen and the storylines. I think everyone feels lucky to be a part of it. But I would panic. I'd probably wave at the camera and say hi to my mum.
"I'd shy away from being a part of a live episode. I'd run to the toilets because I would be so nervous. Trying to remember your lines and say them live would be a nightmare, but obviously, if I had to do it I would."
The episode is set to feature high drama as it will reportedly focus on the aftermath of a tram crash which will wreak havoc on the Street and see a number of characters exit the show.
Speaking of the live show, a spokesperson for the soap said: "Everyone is very excited, if a little nervous, about the prospect of a live episode but we felt it was fitting to do one to celebrate the prestigious anniversary."
'Coronation Street' has previously broadcast an hour-long live show to celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2000. The episode also featured a special appearance by the Prince of Wales in a pre-recorded segment.
In February of this year, BBC soap 'EastEnders' marked its 25th anniversary with a live broadcast.
