Having tied the knot with the handsome Mark Wright earlier this year, Michelle Keegan is experiencing a lot of firsts as a married woman. This Christmas will be Michelle's first as the new Mrs Wright, and to celebrate, the actress and her hubby are heading up north to spend time with Michelle's family.
Chatting exclusively to HELLO! Online at the launch of her new Lipsy collection, Michelle opened up about her festive plans.
"We're spending it in Manchester this year which I'm really excited for," said the former Coronation Street star, who lives with Mark in her husband's native Essex. "Just because for the past two years we've been in Essex."
"I think I'm going to really enjoy waking up in my mum's house again and opening presents at my dad's," said Michelle Keegan
"And don't get me wrong, we've had a great time but I think I'm going to really enjoy waking up in my mum's house again and opening presents at my dad's," she said. "The basic things that you did when you were younger. I'm really happy."
Style icon Michelle, who hails from Stockport, also revealed what was on her Christmas list.
"I do like my pyjamas on Christmas Eve," said Michelle. "I want some really nice PJs that I can wear on Christmas Eve night. I'm also a fan of a onesie, but I like a two piece. They have to be cosy!"
The actress said she would like to see Cheryl Fernandez-Versini wearing her designs
The HELLO! Online blogger has just launched her new Lipsy collection and dished out her top style tips for autumn and the upcoming Christmas party season. While women across the country flock to stores and online to steal Michelle's style, one celebrity that she is hoping to see don her designs is Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.
"I've always said Cheryl because I think she looks amazing whatever she wears, and I think she's got the Lipsy Look, that feminine style," said Michelle. "Every girl loves her and she looks good in anything she puts on. I'm also a massive fan of Jessica Alba, just because she's amazing."

"I can picture every woman wearing my designs," she added. "I've seen a range of grandmas wearing my outfits to really young girls. And that's what I like – the fact that everyone can relate to something from Lipsy, everyone likes something from Lipsy. I feel it goes to any woman – and that's why we always go with lace placing that contours the body and makes women feel confident."
The Lipsy London Love Michelle collection is available at lipsylondon.com and across Lipsy Stores. It will be available from Next.co.uk and all Next international websites from 4 November.
