In a new interview with The Mirror, the Coronation Street star claimed that while she doesn’t have a problem with Botox, she personally hasn’t availed of its benefits.
While defending herself against recent claims that her face looked different in Our Girl than it had previously, the 29-year-old said: “Everyone says that I’ve changed my face and I’ve had Botox, but you have to be able to move your face when you’re an actress – which I can do.”
“So you can see I haven’t had it. I don’t worry about what people say though, what’s the big deal about Botox? I know loads of people who’ve had it, it’s not a big deal.”
So why did Michelle look different in the new BBC drama? Well maybe it’s because she was wearing less makeup than usual.
The star said: “I loved that fact that I was stripped back for this role – no makeup, my hair was up, it was liberating.”
“People always see me in nice dresses, looking done. I thought it was a really nice opportunity to show them my acting.”
We think Michelle looks great either way.
