Keegan: I'd love a Downton role

Michelle Keegan has a soft spot for Union J

Michelle Keegan has revealed she's been brushing up her Queen's English - so she can star in a costume drama.

The actress, who plays Tina McIntyre in Coronation Street, told FHM she's been practising her posh vowels.

The Sun reports that she told the magazine: "I'm working on it at the moment actually! I really want to do a period drama one day, I'd love that. Something like The Tudors or Downton Abbey."

Michelle, who is dating The Only Way Is Essex star Mark Wright, also revealed she has taken a shine to "really cute" X Factor boyband Union J.

"I forget how young they are. Someone did turn round to me and say, 'Michelle, you do know they're like 19?'" she confessed.

"I don't want to be known as a cougar! I'm 25, so Union J would definitely be a bit cougarish."
