Michelle, 27, was pictured on the set of new BBC One drama Ordinary Lives yesterday and, well, it's fair to say the northern beauty looked pretty ordinary!
The star, who quit Coronation Street in April, plays a car showroom receptionist in the new show and had barely a scrap of make-up on her face.
Michelle's usually glossy and preened locks were also kept natural and loose, with half of her hair pinned up and the rest left down. A colourful 90s braid had also been added.
The actress' usual glamorous outfits had also been traded in too, and she was pictured wearing simple leggings, a tunic and blue leather jacket.
This is Michelle's first big acting job since she left Corrie and it is shaping up to be a good one. The cast lineup for the show is pretty impressive and it seems they have all formed a close bond behind-the-scenes.
Last week, Michelle was pictured alongside her Ordinary Lives co-stars, including former EastEnders actress Jo Joyner and fellow ex-Corrie star Rebecca Callard.
The programme is based around the lives of those working in a car sales showroom, but the start date is yet to be announced. We can't wait to tune in!
