Actress has had a comforter since she was a teen

Mark Wright isn’t the only thing Michelle Keegan likes to wrap her arms around.

The actress has confessed to owning a special blanket that her mother gave her when she deemed Michelle too old for soft toys.

‘It’s a bit musty. I hate washing it but my mum washes it every time she comes round to my house,’ says Michelle, 27.

‘I had a teddy until I was 14. My mum took it off me and this was my replacement.’

The ex-Coronation Street star is aware that she’ll have to part ways with comforting piece of fabric when she ties the knot with fianc√© Mark, 27.

‘I think I will finally have to get rid of it when I get married,’ Michelle tells You magazine.

The couple are planning a ‘romantic and intimate’ ceremony for next year but are yet to announce any more details.
