Michelle Keegan talks body confidence following her South African filming stint...

And it would appear that our wildest dreams might have just became reality… as some top secret  fitness secrets have managed to leak from Mich Keeg HQ!

The best bit? You can officially pie the gym and er, eat more pie- as Michelle is actually very anti-cardio…

Speaking with Woman’s Health, the former Corrie actress has revealed that she’s actually put on a lil’ weight lately during filming- and she has absolutely no plans to shift it anytime soon.


Michelle, who recently filmed the third series of BBC hit Our Girl, has revealed that spending her days filming in South Africa left her no time to work out.

Speaking with the publication, Mich shares: ‘I’ve put on a stone, and I feel it everywhere’.

However, the lovely lady then shared that she doesn’t really see this as a problem- and very rightly so!

Mark Wright’s lady explains, ‘I’ve been away [filming Our Girl] for so long and I haven’t had time to work out, and I literally landed two days ago and now I’m kicking myself and thinking: ‘Why didn’t I just eat healthily while I was away?’.

The 30-year-old continues: ‘But you know what, I think I needed to put on a bit of weight. I was a bit bony. You can hide behind your character when you’re acting – you’re not being yourself.’.

Michelle then added that she had previously had a few hangups about her body: ‘I’m a normal girl at the end of the day and when I’m standing there in a bikini or teeny-tiny clothes I’m like: ‘Oh God!.

During her chat with the publication, Michelle then touched on her time in South Africa away from husband-of-two-years Mark.

The 30-year-old shared, ‘It’s hard being away from him [while I’m filming]. Really hard. But we FaceTime and speak, like, all day every day! That’s what keeps me sane!’.

We’re big believers in every body being beautiful, but we’re definitely loving Michelle‘s recent found confidence in her curves.

Can’t wait to have you back on home soil, Mich!
