'Coronation Street' star Michelle Keegan has mentored Georgia May Foote on the perils of being in the public eye ahead of her departure from the soap next month
Michelle Keegan advised Georgia May Foote not to "fall out of taxis drunk".
The 'Coronation Street' star - who plays Tina McIntyre - has mentored her younger co-star on the perils of being in the public eye ahead of her departure from the soap next month.
Georgia told The Sun newspaper: "Michelle did warn me that I would get more attention when I started. She said, 'Give it a couple of years and all the cameras will be on you.'
"She told me to just get on with my life and remember what I know is true, because at times people will get the wrong idea and you can't set the world straight. She also warned me not to fall out of taxis drunk."
The 23-year-old actress - who plays Katy Armstrong - is tipped to be the next sex symbol on the cobbles when Michelle leaves, and while Georgia is "flattered" by the comparison, she insists they lead very different lives outside of the show.
Georgia explained: "It's very flattering to be compared to Michelle but I wish people would stop.
"I'm quite quiet and don't have her life outside 'Corrie'. She has her relationship with Mark Wright and goes out a lot, while I'm at home watching TV."
