'Coronation Street' Michelle Keegan: 'I wouldn't rule out surrogacy'

By
Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan has revealed that her current storyline has changed her views on surrogacy.

The actress's character Tina McIntyre is currently carrying a baby for Gary Windass and Izzy Armstrong in an ongoing plot for the Weatherfield soap.

Appearing on ITV1's This Morning today (December 12), Keegan spoke further about a meeting she had with real-life surrogate mum Jo Anderson to research the storyline.

Keegan explained: "I met a lady called Jo who was amazing. No-one really talks about surrogacy, it's a bit of a taboo subject. She basically said, 'I've had my own children and I wanted to help other people have children'.

"I couldn't get my head around it at first, but when she told me the stories… it's just amazing."

She continued: "I would never rule it out now, ever. If someone really needed my help I would never rule that out... or if I needed [a surrogate], yeah, 100%."

Keegan added that she is delighted to now be wearing Coronation Street's on-set baby bump.

"It's been round the whole cast," she joked. "But I love it, I've been waiting for that bump for years."

Asked whether the story has made her broody, the 25-year-old replied: "Yeah, I'm always broody anyway - I love kids!"
