It’s been two years since Michelle Keegan left Coronation Street. But let’s just say she’s not doing too badly in the career stakes.
Our favourite Manchester-born beauty has been on a roll since leaving the cobbles, having just finished filming Our Girl 2, and having also announced her upcoming lead role in ITV biopic, Tina And Bobby.
But The Sun has just found out a startling (but totally well deserved) fact about Mich – she’s now earning 16x the salary she was whilst on Corrie. WOWZA.
The 29-year-old is said to be bringing in big bucks not only through her acting roles, but also through her fashion and beauty endorsements, such as Revlon, Lipsy and Garnier.
In fact, it’s said that Michelle could have earned just under £1 million last year, according to The Sun, whereas on Corrie, her annual salary was around £60,000.
Not that money matters, but we’re so pleased to hear that Keegs is doing so well – but it sounds like all of this hard work has left Mich in need of some alone time with her hubby, Mark Wright.
‘I’m definitely going away with Mark and we’re going to have a nice relaxing holiday’, Michelle told us about her plans for the rest of the year. ‘We’ve both been so busy recently, so it will be nice to get away.
You totally deserve it, lady.
