Coronation Street sweetheart Michelle Keegan is set to be the VIP guest at The Mall Blackburn’s fashion extravaganza on Saturday 29th September.

Michelle, who won Best Soap Actress in the TV Choice Awards on Monday 10th September, will be introduced to the crowd at the beginning of the 1pm fashion show and she will sign autographs for the public at intervals until 4pm.

Her on screen alter ego, Tina McIntyre, is currently at loggerheads with Kirsty Soames and Tyrone Dobbs and in the coming weeks she is set to be at the centre of a surrogacy storyline involving Gary Windass and Izzy Armstrong.

Loraine Jones, General Manager at The Mall Blackburn, said: “We are delighted to announce that Michelle will be joining us on Saturday 29th September and we know that the people of Lancashire will give her a very warm welcome.

“She is involved in some big storylines at the moment and has huge public support. Michelle is also extremely stylish which makes her the perfect guest on the day we celebrate a true fashion extravaganza here in The Mall Blackburn.

“The event is a ‘must attend’ for all fashionistas and Coronation Street fans and there really will be something for everyone!”

Full details of the event line up will be released soon.
