Actress's dark skin is causing problems

Michelle Keegan is desperate for her golden holiday glow to disappear.

The actress – who’s recently returned from Dubai – must have lighter skin ahead of her character’s exit from Coronation Street.

‘I was only away for a week and wore the highest factor sunscreen to protect my skin,’ Michelle tells the Manchester Evening News.

‘The only problem now is I need my tan to fade – and fast!

‘I’ve only got four more weeks left on Corrie and so it will soon be the death scenes. I literally need to be as white as a sheet.’

Mark Wright‘s fiancée, 26, is hoping the weather remains cloudy until Tina McIntyre‘s murder on the show.

‘I’m praying there isn’t any more sunshine in Manchester – I’ll have to stay indoors.’
