Loved-up Corrie star is planning on a big family

Coronation Street star Michelle Keegan said she wants to have at least four children with her fiancé Mark Wright.

Michelle, who plays Tina McIntyre, is due to leave the soap in June and already has marriage and babies on the brain.

The 26-year-old actress, who is engaged to The Only Way Is Essex star and TV host Mark Wright, says she can’t wait to walk down the aisle and is ready to take on the challenges that come with having a big brood.

“The idea of marriage is so appealing and with Mark I knew straight away,” she said, adding that she wants to have at least four children with her hubby-to-be. “My mum’s told me how exhausting it is but when the time comes I’ll be ready.”

Her decision to leave the soap has the backing of her 27-year-old fiancé. The pair got engaged last September after a nine-month courtship and plan to walk down the aisle in the summer.

In her six years on the show, Michelle’s been at the heart of gripping storylines, including having a secret abortion and becoming a surrogate mother for friends.
