She’d enjoyed one of the most momentous 24 hours of her life after announcing her engagement to TV presenter boyfriend, Mark Wright, on Monday morning.
But Michelle Keegan’s day just kept on getting better when the 26-year-old Coronation Star was awarded the highly-coveted Best Actress prize at the 2013 TV Choice Awards later that evening.
Although the soap beauty was unable to attend the ceremony at London’s The Dorchester hotel due to work commitments, she took to Twitter to express her excitement, admitting she had to keep ‘pinching’ herself after seeing two of her dreams come true in one day.
Michelle, who plays Tina McIntyre in the ITV1 soap, tweeted: ‘Jst finished work n got told that I won Best Soap Actress at the @TVChoice awards! Im absolutely over the moon! THANKYOU so much to every1 who took the time out and voted for me.
‘This means so much. Thankyouuu! WOW what an amazing day! I have to keep pinching myself #solucky.’
