Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan has said that she would “absolutely love” a part in the new period drama Mr Selfridge.

The 25-year-old actress, who worked at a make-up counter in Selfridges in Manchester, told The Sun: "I'm qualified after all, and I know the history behind it all.

"When I first started working in Selfridges, we had a big talk about when and how it first opened and they talked about founder Mr Selfridge as well."
