Michelle Keegan in Our Girl

Michelle Keegan is desperate to portray Duchess Catherine in a future film but thinks she'll have to work on her accent if she wants to nab the role

Michelle Keegan wants to play Duchess Catherine in a movie.

The 28-year-old actress' dream role would be to portray the royal - who was known as Kate Middleton before her marriage to Prince William - on screen but admits she would need to work hard to alter her Mancunian accent to be more like the duchess' refined tones.

She said: "I'd love to play her. She's really just a normal girl at heart - well, not any more, she gave birth to the future king.

"That film's got to be made soon, surely?

"But I would need to get my accent sorted!"

For now, Michelle - who is married to former 'TOWIE' star turned presenter Mark Wright - is focused on her role in military drama 'Our Girl', a role she has taken over from Lacey Turner, and thinks it will show fans a different side to what they saw when she played Tina McIntyre on 'Coronation Street'.

She told Closer magazine: "It's such a contrast to anything I've done before, it's so active. I wanted 'Our Girl' when Lacey Turner was in it and loved it. You'll get to see me in a totally different light."
