If you’ve been missing Miss Keegan’s face gracing your TV screens since her departure from Coronation Street back in May, have no fear, the wait will soon be over! News broke this week about the new BBC One drama series, Ordinary Lies, which is set to air in 2015. Ordinary Lies is a six part series from the creative minds behind Happy Valley and Last Tango in Halifax, RED Production Company, and Shameless director Danny Brocklehurst. Filming for the show will start this week.
Michelle took to her HELLO! blog to share her excitement and give a little insight about what the project is all about. “It’s set in the offices of a motor showroom, and is about the little white lies that people tell and how they can spiral out of control. The writing is amazing (the series is written by Emmy and BAFTA winner Danny Brocklehurst) and there’s a fantastic cast including Mackenzie Crook, Max Beesley, Jason Manford and Sally Linsday. My character is called Tracey, but I can’t tell you anything else about her just yet, don’t want to give anything away! I’m honoured to be working with such a talented group of actors and can’t wait to start filming… Oh and another great thing about this job is that it’s being filmed in my home town of Manchester! Yep, it’s back up the M6 for me for a while…!”
According to Digital Spy, Michelle’s character Tracey works at the motor showroom as a receptionist, and is a wannabe WAG who dreams of a life of luxury. What do you think of Michelle’s new gig? 2015 can’t come soon enough!
