'Coronation Street' star Michelle Keegan has revealed she got into trouble with show bosses after returning with a dark tan following a holiday in Dubai
Michelle Keegan's tan has caused continuity problems on 'Coronation Street'.
The 25-year-old actress - who plays pregnant barmaid Tina McIntyre on the soap - caused chaos for the show's producers when she returned to the set with a sun-kissed glow after a holiday in Dubai.
She explained to the Daily Star newspaper: "I didn't sunbathe because I'm supposed to be in the middle of a pregnancy. So I was good and tried not to go as dark as I normally go. I put Factor 30 sunscreen on."
Despite her best efforts to stay out of the sun, the brunette beauty returned from the sunny country several shades darker, resulting in a lengthy session in the 'Corrie' make-up chair.
She said: "They put a tinted moisturiser, two shades lighter than my real tone and white powder, onto my hands, neck and face."
Michelle revealed it wasn't the first time she had gotten into trouble over her tan, adding: "I remember two years ago when Tina was depressed, I only went away for four days but I came back quite dark and [the] make-up [department] panicked.
"They sent an email asking if it could be written that Tina had been on a sun bed or got a fake tan."
