Former Corrie star Michelle Keegan has been spotted shopping up a storm in Manchester...

But while many thought Michelle was treating herself to a day of retail therapy, the actress was in fact filming for her new BBC One drama, Ordinary Lies.

For this scene, she must have been a pro!

Every girl loves a bit of retail therapy, and laden with bags, it looked like Michelle had been doing just that earlier today. But, sadly it was all for show as she got stuck into a scene for her new role.

Last month, Michelle announced she will be starring in new six-part drama Ordinary Lies. The 27-year-old plays a character called Tracey - a showroom receptionist at a northern car firm, who is also a wannabe WAG and dreams of living a life of luxury.

That explains the shopping bags then...

Having just recently moved to Essex to set up home with fiancé Mark Wright, Michelle has headed back up North as filming for her new show gets well underway.

When she's not busy with filming, Michelle has been supporting Mark as he takes part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing. Since the show has gone live, Michelle has been in the audience cheering on her man.

Ahead of his first live performance, Michelle tweeted Mark her good luck wishes, she said: "On my way to watch @MarkWright_ move his snake hips on @bbcstrictly tonight. Sending u lots of luck babe. Love you, so proud of u. xx."

And carrying on her supporting streak, Mich made sure she was ready at the side of the dance floor - along with Mark's mum Carol and sister Jessica Wright - for his second dance with professional partner, Karen Haeur.

Former TOWIE star Mark has said that by dancing on Strictly he is hoping to brush up on his footwork ahead of his and Michelle's wedding.

The couple are planning to wed next year after Mark proposed to Michelle while holidaying in Dubai last September.
