Michelle Keegan has reportedly turned down the opportunity to stand in for pregnant Holly Willoughby on Celebrity Juice.

According to The Sun, the gorgeous actress was the hot favourite to join the show while Holly was on maternity leave but she's had to say no as it clashes with another project.

It's no secret that Celebrity Juice star Keith Lemon loves Michelle but sadly it seems he might have to stick with her doing the occasional guest appearance instead of being by his side each week…

A source said: "Unfortunately, although Michelle said she loves the show, it clashed with another project she has already signed up for this year. It's a drama which she is very excited about as she has always been keen to focus on acting after leaving Corrie."

Michelle, 27, left her role as Tina McIntyre on Coronation Street earlier this year. Viewers saw the character being killed off in June, meaning there is no chance of a return to the cobbles for Michelle.

But since then, the actress has been keeping busy and focusing on other projects, including her Lipsy fashion collection which launched earlier this summer.

She's also hinted that she'd love to pursue a movie role, saying now would be a good time to try her chances in America as she hasn't started a family yet.

"I'd love to do film or go over there to try it out. I don't want to look back on my life and think, 'What if?'"

And she's been busy in her personal life, finally moving from her native Manchester to a new home in Essex alongside fiance Mark Wright. Not to mention getting started on their wedding plans!
