Michelle Keegan has secured her first role since quitting 'Coronation Street' earlier this year and will appear in new BBC drama 'Ordinary Lies'
Michelle Keegan has landed a role in 'Ordinary Lies'.
The 27-year-old actress quit her role as 'Coronation Street' barmaid Tina McIntyre earlier this year and was brutally killed off the ITV soap and it's now been revealed she will return to screens in the new BBC One drama.
The brunette beauty will play a receptionist at a car showroom alongside a number of other stars including former 'EastEnders' star Jo Joyner, Sally Lindsay, Jason Manford, Mackenzie Crook and Max Beesley.
The six-part series - which was written by Bafta-winner Danny Brocklehurst - follows the everyday lives of shifty car salesman, played by Manford, Joyner and Crook, and other staff at the firm.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "The characters are likeable but they don't always tell the truth. Some lies start off huge, others are tiny and grow.
"It shows what happens when the lies people tell to keep their heads above water spin out of control with sometimes tragic, sometimes funny consequences."
Michelle hinted at her role in 'Shameless' and 'The Street' scribe Brocklehurst's new project last month when she revealed she had "an exciting job in the pipeline".
