The Coronation Street star, 25, called off her engagement to the 24-year-old Chasing The Sun singer in the summer after 19 months together.
Opening up about her heartbreak while posing semi-naked in the Caribbean shallows, Michelle revealed: ‘It was a very sad time for us…but I got to think of it as I’m not the only girl who has ever had a break-up.
‘The worst part for me was having the whole thing played out so publicly,’ she told Hello!.
And its onwards and upwards for the pretty brunette, who yesterday took to Twitter to preach a bit of Girl Power.
She posted: ‘Ladies, create your own standards… Know your worth. X’
She then headed out for a night on the town in Manchester where she partied with Britain’s Got Talent winner turned Waterloo Road star George Sampson.
‘Yep, this morning has reminded me as to why I don’t usually drink!!!!’ she tweeted earlier today.
