Michelle Keegan popped up somewhere unexpected on Monday evening, as she showed her Instagram fans that she’d returned to the famous Coronation Street cobbles.

The actress starred on the hit soap for six years, but her character, Tina McIntyre, came to her unfortunate demise at the hands of Rob Donovan.

Returning to the set, after making her final appearance in June 2014, the 33 year old star penned: “Look where I am… Feels like yesterday I was on the cobbles,” followed by a red love heart.

Michelle gave fans a very short tour of the iconic Coronation Street set, turning the camera past Dev’s off licence, The Kabin and the Platt household.

Decorations could be seen making their way around the streetlights, pointing to the fact that the soap is getting Christmas ready.

While it’s unknown as to why Michelle, who is currently filming back on the Brassic set, returned to her old stomping ground, she has said before: “I always say that I’d love to go back to Corrie – I was always a massive fan of Coronation Street growing up and I’ll never say never.

“You never know what happens in the future.”

Clearly frustrated by Boris Johnson's decision to put tougher lockdown restrictions for London and Essex, Michelle's simple message says it all.

And Coronation Street, like other soaps, has had to film with government guidelines in mind this year, amid the coronavirus pandemic.

However, The soap's boss, Iain Macleod, recently told The Sun Online that they were in a position to film normally for Christmas.

"The bubble is still there as a contingency. I don’t want to jinx things but at the moment we are on course to hit the 60th and Christmas – it will therefore be narrative” he told the publication.

He continued: “Assuming everything remains as it is, big story peaks and arcs rather than a standalone.

"We are very agile as a genre, we can change tack extremely quickly so if it got to the point where we can’t film Christmas, we would change course and shoot a standalone episode.

"But at the moment, fingers crossed, we shouldn’t need to."
