‘Coronation Street’s Michelle Keegan had to be treated by paramedics after filming tonight’s (09.05.12) fight scenes.
The brunette’s character Tina McIntyre will be left fighting for her life after being attacked by Terry Duckworth’s loan sharks and plucky Michelle was so concerned the scenes wouldn’t look real that she insisted on doing all her own stunts, leading to a suspected concussion.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: ”I wanted it to look as convincing as possible so I really went for it. They had a stunt guy and a paramedic on set and the paramedic checked my head, then checked my neck and told me to sit down and give it a few minutes.”
Although she ended up covered in bruises from the scenes, Michelle enjoyed the physical aspect of filming.
She said: ”I ended up with bruises on my upper arms and huge bruises on my thighs.
