Michelle Keegan on 'horrible' questions about when she is going to become a mum

"In this day and age you shouldn't ask questions like that."

Michelle Keegan has slammed "horrible", intrusive questions about when she is going to become a mum - as "it's no-one else's business".

The former Coronation Street actress told The Sun how she was frustrated by “everybody’s obsession” as to when she is going to become a mum.

Talking about the questions, she said:

"It's horrible. It's like, 'You're 32. Are you not planning to have a baby yet?'

"People don't know if we're trying. They don't know the background of what's happening. It's no-one else's business. In this day and age you shouldn't ask questions like that."

The actress, who is currently starring in Sky One's Brassic, added she gets "so frustrated" by the questions - especially as her husband, Mark, never gets asked the same.

She continued:

"I'm asked purely because I'm a woman. But I'm immune to it now - it's like a reaction and as soon as I hear it I brush it off, as it's no-one else's business."

Michelle and Mark Wright got married in 2015. And while the pair spent a few years living on opposite sides of the world - Michelle in South Africa, to film Our Girl; Mark in Los Angeles, filming E!'s Extra - they are now back living together.

Recalling people's reactions to their long distance relationship, she said:

“Everyone was like, ‘Oh my god, how did you manage?’

“But again, because we’re so used to working separately, it was fine and we’ve got FaceTime — you can be so close to your loved ones without even being there now.”
