Corrie's Keegan linkes to 'I'm a Celeb…'

Michelle Keegan would take part in 'I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!'

The 'Coronation Street' beauty was impressed with her former co-star Helen Flanagan's jungle antics and thinks facing your fears in the Australian outback would be a "massive achievement", so could see herself singing up to the show in the future.

She explained: "I am very proud of Helen for what she's achieved, because at the beginning I didn't think she could have done it, so for her that's a massive achievement. I wouldn't say I would do it now, but I'd never say never to anything."

However, the 25-year-old actress would never take part in a reality TV show like 'Strictly Come Dancing' or 'Dancing On Ice' in front of a live audience as she would be far too anxious to perform.

She admitted: "I'd be nervous to do something like 'Strictly' or the ice dancing one, just because it's in front of a live audience. Plus, I can't dance, so that would be embarrassing."

Michelle also let slip a few of her embarrassing TV crushes, who include brash comic persona Keith Lemon and 'X Factor' boy band Union J, which has earned her a cougar reputation among her friends.

She added to this month's FHM magazine: "I've got a soft spot for Keith Lemon. And Tom Hardy, for sure. Oh, and I like Union J. though I know they're really young. I think they're really cute! But I forget how young they are.

"Someone did turn round to me and say, Michelle, 'You do know they're, like, 19?' I don't want to be known as a cougar! I'm 25, so Union J would definitely be a bit cougarish."
