The Our Girl actress nearly found herself in the middle of a fight as she left 100 Wardour Street on Jess Wright's birthday night out...
With her amazing performance as Lance Corporal Georgie Lane in BBC drama, Our Girl, Michelle Keegan is used to handling on-screen conflicts – but the actress was faced with a real life bust-up when she went clubbing this weekend.
The ex Corrie star arrived in London on Saturday to celebrate her sister in-law, Jess Wright’s, big birthday night out, but things turned nasty when she narrowly avoided a nightclub brawl. Yikes.
Michelle was leaving Soho’s exclusive 100 Wardour Club when she was snapped darting down the stairs to safety as a fight broke out behind her.
The 29-year-old was just inches away from two security guards who had to restrain a man in the doorway of the popular night spot. Eek.
It isn’t clear if the night-club goer was trying to get to Michelle, or was just a little worse for wear, but a source at the scene told The Sun Online: “It looked like he was trying something and security was stopping him from either talking or getting a picture.”
The pictures show Michelle looking slightly shocked as she joined her friends at the bottom of the stairs – luckily she dealt with the situation like a pro and came out of the scrap unscathed. Phew.
Despite all the commotion, Michelle and her sis in-law, TOWIE star Jess, looked stunning as they celebrated Jess’ 31st birthday in the capital, posing for pictures with their pals.
Michelle sported a leather skirt and white lace blouse as she took a rare day off from filming to let her hair down.
The busy star has been splitting her time between Manchester and South Africa to film upcoming series, Tina and Bobby, and popular drama, Our Girl but is currently enjoying her time back in Essex with hubby, Mark Wright.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain last week, she said it was good to be back and added: “Back to normality now, back home. Takeaways, doing normal things, it’s been great.”
Well we’re glad to see you home and safe after that night-club near miss.
