Michelle Keegan’s agent has refuted claims that the star is taking a break from Coronation Street.
Rumours circulated on Monday (July 9) that the Tina McIntyre actress has been asked to partake in the 2012 series of Strictly Come Dancing in the autumn.
However, her agent Vital Management PR wrote on Twitter: “The story about Michelle Keegan doing Strictly is untrue. Its just an inaccurate rumour doing the rounds! sorry!”
Vital Management made the statement after the Coronation Street Blog requested clarification of the speculation.
The Daily Star reported earlier this week that Keegan was being touted as the BBC ballroom show’s biggest celebrity signing of the year.
A Coronation Street spokesperson at the time commented coyly: “Offers to our actors are considered on merit.”
Keegan’s friend and co-star Antony Cotton was given special permission to join I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here last November while remaining on the ITV soap.
