Michelle Keegan has admitted that she'd like to go travelling after she leaves Coronation Street - no doubt with fiancè Mark Wright!

Michelle plays Tina McIntyre in the long-running ITV1 soap, however in April she confirmed she would be leaving Corrie after six years.

The actress, who got engaged to former TOWIE star Mark in September, hopes to land other roles within the TV industry, but not before she's cured her itchy feet.

Speaking to the Daily Star's TV Extra, Michelle admitted: "Post Corrie and work-wise, I want to try other acting roles.

"I may also do some travelling as well if I get the time and the opportunity."

Meanwhile, Michelle - who won the gong for Sexiest Female at the Soap Awards this year - has also revealed how she keeps in such good shape.

"I work out whenever I have the time, which can be around three times a week," she added.

"I enjoy eating a balanced diet with lots of vegetables and fruit. I don't eat a lot of bread or potatoes but I enjoy the odd pudding and cocktail on a night out. Everything in moderation!"

Michelle is currently living in Manchester, where Corrie is filmed. Mark, however, is still based in his home county of Essex.

It is thought the couple will marry next year, leaving fans wondering whether Michelle will decide to settle down south.

Announcing her Corrie depature, Michelle previously said: "I have had the most amazing six years at Coronation Street and it was such a difficult decision to leave.

"But I felt it was the right time for me to make the next step in my career."
