‘I’ve Put On A Stone And I Feel It Everywhere’: Michelle Keegan Opens Up About Weight Gain
“I literally landed two days ago and now I’m kicking myself.”
Michelle Keegan has opened up about gaining weight while filming for BBC drama Our Girl in South Africa.
Speaking to Women’s Health, the actress explained: “I’ve put on a stone and feel it everywhere. I’ve been away for so long and I haven’t had time to work out, and I literally landed two days ago and now I’m kicking myself and thinking: ‘Why didn’t I just eat healthily while I was away?’”
Michelle continued: “But you know what, I think I needed to put on a bit of weight. I was a bit bony. You can hide behind your character when you’re acting – you’re not being yourself. I’m a normal girl at the end of the day and when I’m standing there in a bikini or teeny-tiny clothes I’m like: ‘Oh God!”
Michelle also opened up about how she’s finding time away from her husband Mark while filming: “It’s hard being away from him. Really hard, but we FaceTime and speak, like, all day every day! That’s what keeps me sane!”
