Michelle Keegan has revealed the sort of role she would love to play and it may surprise you...

Since leaving Coronation Street, after the death of her character Tina McIntyre, fans have seen Michelle play a receptionist who became involved in drug trafficking in Ordinary Lies, star in ITV2 comedy Plebs and take on the role of an army medic, Lance Corporal Georgie Lane, in Our Girl.

However, there is one role she would love to bag herself and that would be a serial killer.

Now that would be something different, right?

Speaking to Daily Star, Michelle revealed her hopes for her acting future and said: "I'd love to do something a bit darker. I want to do something totally different, like playing a serial killer."

Michelle also admitted she would "love" to star in a film and reflected on her exit from Coronation Street.

She appeared as Tina on the soap for six years, before she was killed off in 2014. Tina was pushed from a balcony and later died in hospital, shutting the door on a possible return to the cobbles for Michelle - something which she admits has actually helped her and her career.

The 29-year-old explained: "I could have stayed at Corrie my whole life. It's like a family there. I thought if I didn't leave when I did, I never would have left because it was so comfortable... but the way things are, I can't do that, I have to go out and find work."

Finding work means heading to plenty of auditions, and Michelle has previously said she doesn't enjoy the whole auditioning process when it comes to securing herself a new role.

During a radio appearance on BBC Radio 1's Breakfast Show, Michelle confessed: "It petrifies me! I hate it."

She said: "I have to audition all the time. I like the buzz about it... but I'm not someone who thrives off auditions. I hate them!"
