Michelle Keegan in hysterics as she films Brassic days before coronavirus scare closes down set

MICHELLE Keegan couldn't hold back her giggles as she filmed on the set of Brassic before it was shut down due to a coronavirus scare.

The 33-year-old actress looked in high spirits as she got to work on the Sky One Comedy, walking alongside co-star Ryan Sampson in one scene.

Wearing a red bomber jacket, grey jogging bottoms and a white jumper, Michelle burst out into laughter while filming the scene.

Looking every inch the part, with her hair tied back into a neatly placed ponytail and accessorising with gold hoops, Michelle failed to stay in character.

The former Coronation Street star was doubled over in giggles, placing her hands on her thighs as she looked towards Ryan.

Gaining composure, Michelle brushed her hair from her face and turned back to start the scene again, looking more serious the second time round.



Sampson, who plays sex-dungeon obsessed Tommo, strode alongside her in a black tracksuit with white and gold snake-print accenting.

The snaps were taken days before the set of Brassic was closed down due to a coronavirus scare that saw cast and crew "test positive".

It would be the second time that filming would pause on the new series, after Michelle was forced to self-isolate after a previous Covid-19 scare.

"The production had to close down as members of the cast and crew have tested positive for Covid," said an insider.


"It is not clear which [of the] cast tested positive or when production will start again."

A spokesperson for Sky confirmed: "Throughout this time, the safety of our colleagues and customers remains our number one priority.

"The Brassic production has paused with cast and crew now self-isolating. We will return to production as soon as it is safe to do so."

Previously, Michelle – who plays cash-strapped mum Erin Croft – was spotted looking glamorous as she filmed a wedding scene in a emerald green co-ord.

The star complemented the daring two-piece with a pair of black heels for the on-screen wedding of Cardi and Carol.

Michelle stole the show as her brunette hair was worked into a glamorous Hollywood wave while heading to the venue.

The British comedy-drama series, which premiered on Sky One in 2019, follows the lives of Vinnie O'Neill (Joe Gilgun) and his friends in the fictional town of Hawley.
