Keegan quit her seven-year role on 'Coronation Street' in May 2014, and has seen her income rocket subsequently.
She took a tremendous gamble with her career when she left her long-term role on ‘Coronation Street’ two years ago, but it all seems to have worked out for Michelle Keegan, who is now apparently earning 16 times more than she did on the ITV soap.
The 29 year old actress quit her role as barmaid Tina McIntyre in May 2014, having held down the part since late 2007. Such a move is often a risk, but a new report in The Sun has apparently disclosed what Keegan has earned since then, and it’s made her one of the most successful former soap stars in Britain, with an income just shy of £1 million over the last 12 months.

Jemima Khan is the latest celeb to take her #nomakeupselfie for Cancer Research UK, but what is it and who else has been getting involved?
For about a week now Facebook and Twitter have both been overrun with selfies of girls wearing no makeup. At first we were all a little confused, but things got increasingly clearer when we realised that the photos were part of what became a viral campaign to raise money for Cancer Research UK. No one is quite sure how the #nomakeupselfie trend started, although it has incredibly raised £8 million (over $13m) so far.

The December 20 episode will feature an exciting guest appearance.

As usual, crazy and unpredictable antics ensue. Chezza herself is excited about the cameo in the beloved soap, which has become a TV institution in its five decades on air.
The glamazon has toned down her look in the episode.
"It has always been part of my life, we'd all watch it as kids every night,” Cole said for the Daily Mirror. "It's surreal to be part of something I've watched my whole life."

Michelle Keegan snapped up her seventh Sexiest Female soap star award at the Inside Soap Awards 2012 but still insists she’s anything but sexy.
The actress won the award after playing the outspoken Rovers Return barmaid Tina McIntyre on Coronation Street only months after winning the same award at the 2012 British Soap Awards for the fourth time. She also won the award for Best Dressed soap star which makes her the holder of 2 out of 3 of Corrie’s wins this year. Despite being TVs favourite eye candy, she previously told The Sun’s TV Biz, ‘I’m genuinely not sexy’ and insisted that people voted for Tina rather than herself because she wears little make-up and doesn’t wear tight clothes which Michelle thinks girls can relate to. ‘I think they find that she’s so confident, a bit sexy’, she said. ‘I haven’t changed since day one. I still go out in my pyjamas to Tesco, hair up, no make-up. I feel comfortable like that. If I were to go out in make-up and heels all the time, I’d just feel so uncomfortable. It’s just not me.’
This year she was up against sexy nominees Jacqueline Jossa who plays Lauren Branning in EastEnders, Natalie Anderson AKA Alicia Metcalfe from Emmerdale and Rachel Shenton who plays the wronged Mitzeee in Hollyoaks. Best Soap went to EastEnders who scooped up seven separate awards including Best Actress (Gillian Wright), Best Newcomer (Hetti Bywater) and Best Bitch (Charlie Brooks).
