Michelle Keegan has revealed she is "always broody" since her 'Coronation Street' character Tina McIntyre has taken on the role of a surrogate mother to friends Izzy Armstrong and Gary Windass
'Coronation Street's Michelle Keegan is "always broody".
The brunette beauty's character Tina McIntyre has taken on the task of being a surrogate for friends Izzy Armstrong (Cherylee Houston) and Gary Windass (Mikey North) after wheelchair bound Izzy found she was unable to carry her own baby.
However Michelle, 25, has found the experience so realistic that she has urges to "rub" the fake baby bump and invest in some maternity clothing of her own.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "I've been waiting for that bump for years - I love it. I can actually feel myself walking around like I'm pregnant and sitting down like I'm pregnant.
"I'm always broody anyway. I love kids. I've always wanted to be a mum. And I keep on wanting to rub the baby bump, which is made of sponge.
"I do need some maternity trousers, though - there's nothing in the crotch in these low rise jeans. You can see my knickers. I'll have to wear leggings."
Although Tina's grand gesture has made her friends dreams come true it has also ruined her relationship with boyfriend Tommy Duckworth (Chris Fountain), who walked out on her when people assumed the baby was his, and Michelle hopes they will be reunited in the future as they are perfect for each other.
She added: "I like Tina and Tommy together. I think they really suit each other. Hopefully the writers won't split them up for good because the public likes them together too. Fingers crossed."
