Michelle Keegan tan causes 'Coronation Street' to 'lighten' her

By
Michelle Keegan has apparently caused continuity issues for Coronation Street producers after taking a holiday.

The actress, who is currently in the middle of filming her character Tina McIntyre's surrogacy storyline, returned from a holiday in Dubai with a sun tan. She went on vacation with boyfriend Mark Wright.

"I didn't sunbathe because I'm supposed to be in the middle of a pregnancy," she told the Daily Star.

"So I was good and tried not to go as dark as I normally go. I put factor 30 sunscreen on."

However, Keegan revealed that the make-up department was forced to swiftly lighten her new darker complexion.

"They put a tinted moisturiser, two shades lighter than my real tone and white powder, onto my hands, neck and face," she added.


The Weatherfield star further divulged that the crew has "panicked" before after she went on a break.

She recalled: "I remember two years ago when Tina was depressed, I only went away for four days but I came back quite dark and [the] make-up [department] panicked.

"They sent an email asking if it could be written that Tina had been on a sun bed or got a fake tan." Get the Inside Soap magazine on your iPhone or iPad
