Georgia May Foote Tipped To Be New Michelle Keegan?
She's signed a new 12 month contract & is after Mich's sexiest crown...
The 22-year old - who plays mother-of-one Katy Armstrong - will become the highest earning young soap actress.
Her contract extension comes after FHM’s March cover girl Michelle announced her departure from the soap, with Keegan stating it was "the right time" to leave the Manchester cobbles behind her.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "It is really brilliant news for everyone at Corrie that Georgia has agreed to stay on.”
Next week, both Keegan and Foote are up for Sexiest Female at the British Soap Awards, an accolade Michelle has won for the past four years.
Corrie bosses are hoping that if Georgia takes home the award, it will boost her popularity, with the source adding: "Losing Michelle will be a huge blow. The fact she's won Sexiest Female at the Soap Awards four years running shows just how popular she is.
"But Georgia has got a real chance of taking her crown this year, which would cement her place as a rising star.''
Foote joined the Corrie set in 2010 and has been more prominent on our screens recently having cheated on Chesney Brown – father of her 18 month old son Joseph - with bad boy Ryan Connor.
