Looking good, Keegs!

Attending the screening of her new show, Brassic, Manchester born actress, Michelle Keegan, looked noticeably different as she returned to her northern roots.

Brassic is a far cry from her role in BBC One’s Our Girl, with Michelle trading in Corporal Georgie Lane’s combat boots for a pair of gold hoops and life as a struggling mum.

The show is a six-part Sky One series, following the lives of best friends Vinnie and Dylan – played by This is England’s Joe Gilgun and Being Human’s Damien Molony – and explores the impact of Bipolar disorder.

Vinnie and Dylan play inseparable best friends in the ‘gritty’ comedy, but all may change when Michelle’s character Erin announces her plans to leave home and start a new life with her and Dylan’s son, Tyler.

Watch Brassic on Thursday 22nd August at 22:00 Sky One.
