Actress Michelle Keegan is brushing up her Polish so that she can be fit for her role as Kate Middleton

The Manchester-born actress who played Tina McIntyre in Corrie from 2008 to 2014 said she would be delighted to play the role of Kate.“I’d love to play Kate,” Michelle, 28, told The Sun on Sunday. “I’m getting there with my accents, I do like doing them.”

Keegan thinks of Duchess of Cambridge as being “just a normal girl at heart.”

Keegan will be seen in a hot scene in the ITV 2 comedy Plebs where she gets cosy with her on-screen lover Stylax (Joel Fry). “I was playing it with Joel and he was so lovely. It was one of the first scenes we did. It was nerve-racking but he was so relaxed and calm that it helped me. Then afterwards I was like, ‘Is that it?’ It was really nothing to be bothered about. Now I can say I’ve been in a sex scene and it was actually quite fun. I certainly wouldn’t mind doing it again if it was a role like that. I wouldn’t be as nervous,” the 28-year-old told Mirror.

“I don’t think the scene will get guys too hot under the collar. I have watched a bit of it and it lasts, like, two minutes,’ she added.

Keegan’s husband, TV presenter Mark Wright seemed to be fine about the scene. He thought it to be funny, she said.

“Mark was fine about it. He knows ‘Plebs’ – he’s a big fan actually. So he knew what I had to do in it and thought it was really funny,” Keegan said.

Keegan would like to do a variety role in future. “My character, Tracy, wasn’t a sexy girl, she was just a normal girl who got in trouble. And again with Our Girl—I’m going in the Army—so all the roles I’m getting are not the typically sexy, stripping off ones, which is great for me,” she told Irish Examiner.
