The Coronation Street star has some dedicated followers

Michelle Keegan‘s dad has been very busy getting people to vote for her ahead of the British Soap Awards next month.

The Coronation Street actress, 26, is nominated in the Sexiest Female and Best Actress categories and Mike Keegan really hopes she gets a trophy.

Mike was thrilled when a fan of Michelle – who’s engaged to ex-TOWIE star Mark Wright – told him how much she’d been supporting his daughter at the weekend.

‘Ive voted @michkeegan 167 times now😊 come on Michelle amazing person ever @pips1566 @BigMarkWright_ lucky to have you 😘,’ Tweeted the follower.

Mike replied: ‘thank you so much.’

Stunning brunette Michelle has won the Sexiest Female gong for the last five years but is yet to be named Best Actress at the prestigious ceremony.

This could be the final year that Michelle has a chance to scoop a prize as her Corrie character Tina McIntyre is being killed off in May.

‘it doesn’t feel real! Xx,’ Tweeted Michelle last week about her upcoming exit.
