Michelle Keegan returns to Corrie set six years after leaving

Michelle Keegan made her return to Coronation Street – six years after being killed off.

The popular actress, 33, took to social media on Monday to reveal to fans that she back was on the famous set, admitting it felt like "yesterday" that she was last there.

Michelle shot to fame after bagging the part of barmaid Tina McIntyre in the long-running ITV soap, playing her from 2008-2014. It was only her second audition, with the role catapulting her into the limelight.

The Our Girl star shared her return on her Instagram stories but did not reveal her reason for stepping onto the cobbles.

Michelle left Coronation Street six years ago after her character was killed off – something she previously said she was happy about.

Michelle Keegan posted a clip to her Instagram stories to reveal her return.

Although it was scary at the time, Michelle said in 2016 she believed the death of her character was good for her career because it pushed her to make a name for herself off the cobbles.

"If the door had been left open at Corrie … I would have thought, 'It doesn’t matter if it doesn’t work out, I can always go back after a year'," she explained.

Michelle added: "I could have stayed at Corrie my whole life. It’s like a family there. But 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, so I have to go out and find work. I have to push myself now and go for lots of auditions. I’m a jobbing actress. It means I go to meetings and I enjoy that buzz."

Since leaving the iconic soap, Michelle has starred in Plebs, Ordinary Lies, BBC One's Our Girl, Sky's Brassic and the TV series Tina and Bobby.
