Kelly Brook says she was second choice to cover Fearne Cotton's maternity leave after Keith Lemon joked he couldn't get 'Coronation Street' star Michelle Keegan
Kelly Brook says Keith Lemon wanted Michelle Keegan for 'Celebrity Juice'.
The 33-year-old model recently joined the panel show to cover Fearne Cotton's maternity leave but she said Keith's first choice was the 'Coronation Street' star.
She said: "Keith said the only reason I got the job is because he couldn't get Michelle Keegan, who he says is a younger, fitter version of me.
"I say to him, why are you so obsessed with boobs and he just says, 'You should be grateful, otherwise you'd be working in Dixons'.
"He's told me I look like Sloth from 'The Goonies' without make-up on. He's been really rude to me already, so I've got an idea about what I'm letting myself in for."
Saturday Magazine reports Kelly is staying positive and taking nothing to heart despite her split from Thom Evans and recent feud with Katie Price.
She added: "I just try to put a positive energy out there. A lot of people in the public eye are nasty and troubled.
"That's their issue, not mine. I don't take myself seriously, but I take my jobs seriously in terms of working hard. I like going out and having fun."
Katie did recently reach out to Kelly and apologise on Twitter for calling her a "heffer".
She wrote: "@IAMKELLYBROOK I'm really sorry for what I've done you know I think your a natural beautiful girl we go back a long way so I'm sorry xx"
