Michelle Keegan has reportedly laughed off a picture of boyfriend Max George being kissed by a mystery blonde.
The Wanted hunk claimed he was the victim of an "over-eager" fan after a snap emerged of a blonde girl with her arm around him in a nightclub, planting a kiss on his lips.
Michelle is quoted in The Sun newspaper as telling a friend: "He even gets kissed when I'm with him... I don't mind."
The 25-year-old Coronation Street star apparently added: "When you go out with someone in one of the biggest boybands in Britain you have to expect this sort of thing.
"It happens all the time, even when I'm with him. Women just rush up and kiss him. I'm relaxed about it. Blokes do it to me too. It comes with the job."
A spokesman for Max said of the picture: "The Wanted have an incredibly passionate fan base. At times the fans can be over-eager when they meet them, especially in a club or bar environment.
"In this case Max was approached and got slightly more than he bargained for."
Michelle and Max, 23, who have been dating since the end of 2010, called off their engagement in April because they said they were both too busy with work to organise a wedding.
