Fans of Michelle will also get a chance to see home video footage of the actress growing up, including a performance of her playing Sporty Spice in a school production - we can't wait for that!

It's also set to be quite nostalgic, as for the first time ever, Michelle will watch her original Coronation Street audition tape from 2007.

Viewers will see interviews with Michelle's mum and dad, who reveal that she was a plain but rebellious teenager, very similar to the character of Tina that she would go on to play. They also explain how the emotional plot of Tina's father dying on screen affected them as a family.

Michelle's co-stars Jack P. Shepherd, Chris Gascoyne, Beverley Callard, Helen Worth, Ryan Thomas and Paula Lane will also feature in the documentary.
