Michelle Keegan wants her 'Coronation Street' alter-ego to get married.
The 24-year-old actress - who plays brunette bombshell Tina McIntyre in the ITV1 soap - is keen for her character to get hitched to on-screen love interest Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain) in the future so she can join the legendary Duckworth fold.
She said: "It'd be lovely, as long as there's a bit of drama before it, during it, and after! Otherwise it wouldn't be a soap wedding if everything went according to plan.
"But I do see Tommy and Tina being in this relationship for the long haul, definitely. It'd be cool to become a Duckworth."
Michelle also explained she and Chris being compared to soap veterans Jack and Vera Duckworth - played by Bill Tarmey and Liz Riley respectively - is a "massive compliment" because the actors are so "iconic"
She added in an interview with Digital Spy: "It's a massive compliment to be compared to them, because they're a very iconic couple.
"I think it's because Tina wears the trousers in the relationship like Vera did. I loved that relationship, because there was so much comedy and bickering between them, but deep down they really did love each other.
"I think we see a similar thing with Tina and Tommy. Tina is very opinionated and she wants to tame Tommy, but you can tell that there's strong feelings between them."
