Recalling the scary incident, the 30-year-old said she told the waiter to bring a Coke, explaining: ‘They came over with a bottle and a straw.

‘But I knew it was quite dangerous because it could get trapped in her throat. So I threw the straw and put it in a glass. She started sipping it and came around slowly.’ Phew!

Speaking about how her time on the show has improved her self belief, Michelle added to the Daily Star: ‘Before Our Girl I would never have done that.

‘I would have gone into a panic state. I think the training that I had gave me confidence.’

Meanwhile, having wrapped up filming for the popular series, the telly star recently jetted away on an idyllic holiday for a relaxing break from work.

Sharing some snaps of her getaway – which appear to be of the Greek Island of Mykonos – Mich captioned the beautiful white beaches and blue skies her ‘escape.’

Having a great time across the pond, Extra presenter Mark posted a load of videos of him and his younger brother dancing in clubs and enjoying themselves at pool parties.

These two are living the life, ey!
