Michelle Keegan: I'll Move In With Mark Wright
Soap star reveals she'll move to Essex once she finishes on Corrie...
The Coronation Street star is leaving the long-running ITV soap next year and told Hello magazine that she wants to be closer to London for new work opportunities.
She said: "I've never lived away from home or even lived with a man. But I've grown up fast in the last few years and know what's right or wrong for me.
"We'll have been together for over a year by then and we'll look at areas around Essex, so it's easy to travel to London."
But Michelle - who was this year voted the hottest woman in the world - insisted that she had not left Corrie to be with former The Only Way Is Essex star Mark.
"I didn't decide to leave because of Mark, it's just how things have worked out," she explained.
"I'd actually been thinking about leaving on and off for a couple of years.
"It was a huge decision to take and a very scary one, as you never know what you'll do afterwards. I will miss it but after six years, I know it's the right thing to do."
