Playing Erin in Sky’s latest comedy series, Brassic, Michelle Keegan has appeared in her second steamy sex scene in as many outings. The scene features co-star Damien Molony, who plays Erin’s boyfriend Dylan, and shows the sexy starlet in the clutches of her lover, cramped inside a porta-loo! Her second scene follows on from the season and series opener in which Erin is seen in the throes of ecstasy atop her boyfriend. Michelle has described how the pair had only met minutes prior to filming the scene inside the porta-loo, “I literally just met Damo and then we had a sex scene in the porta-loo…It was a confined space but it sort of worked for this scene.” Speaking about her role and the appeal the show had for her, Michelle has spoken of being able to relate to its various characters and its northern setting.
Taking its name from cockney rhyming slang for “skint,” “boracic lint,” Sky’s latest comedy tells the tale of five friends who live in the northern town of Hawley. Struggling to make ends meet, the working-class bunch support themselves with various petty crimes. The comedy show premiered on Sky One last Thursday, 22nd August. It has already been well received by fans and is being hailed as a 2019 version of the classic hit show Shameless.
Devised and co-created by Joe Gilgun and Danny Brocklehurt, who previously served as a writer on the comedy classic Shameless, it is clear where the comparison and influences arise from. Alongside Keegan and Gilgun, it stars Damien Molony, Tom Hanson, Aaron Heffernan, Ryan Sampson and Parth Tharekar. It is produced by Juliet Charlesworth.
Keegan leads the cast after great success following a seven-year stint as Coronation Street’s Tina McIntyre and successful roles in BBC One dramas Our Girl and Ordinary Lies.
Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden Introduce Baby Boy Ace Gene to the World
In an OK! Magazine exclusive Charley Webb, 31, and her husband Matthew Wolfenden, 39, introduced the world to the latest addition to their family, their adorable new-born son, Ace Gene. Charley and Matthew share two older sons Buster, who was born in April 2010, and Bowie, who was born in December 2015. It was in February of this year that Charley had announced that she was pregnant with her third child, the adorable Ace Gene.
Charley, who has played the role of Emmerdale’s Debbie Dingle since 2002, joined the soap at the age of fourteen. Her accolades while in the role include nomination for Best Actress at the 2009 British Soap Awards and for Sexiest Female in the 2010 British Soap Awards. Her husband, and Emmerdale co-star, Matthew Wolfenden, who plays David Metcalfe in the soap, joined in 2006. Having met on the show, the couple have been together as a couple since 2007 and had been engaged since 2009. Their super-secret wedding took place at Ripley Castle in Harrowgate, where the guests had thought they were attending Charley’s thirtieth birthday party. Bridesmaids included various Emmerdale co-stars such as Lucy Pargeter and Sammy Winward.
Giving birth to their family’s latest arrival, Charley has spoken of how, when Ace was born, the umbilical cord was around his neck and he suffered difficulty breathing. Talking further about pains during her pregnancy, Charley has also mentioned how the delivery offered relief from an acute pelvic condition, Symphysis Pubic Dysfunction, which left her in “horrendous pain” throughout. The announcement of the birth appeared on Instgram on June 29th. Her husband, Matthew, had spoken of looking forward to the “chaos” the arrival of a third child would bring.
Sporting beautiful baby bumps, beaming smiles and the radiant glow of pregnancy, the three Coronation Street starlets of past and present, Brooke Vincent, Julia Goulding and Hayley Tamaddon, stood proudly posing for a photo shared by Hayley on her Instagram page. “UCH an amazing day @gardenspawarrington, here’s me @brookelevivincent @julia_goulding proudly showing off our baby bumps!

The snap of the excited trio comes after quite an eventful year in the lives of all three. Brooke Vincent, 27, who has played Sophie Webster on-screen since 2004, was the first to announce her pregnancy. The gushing first-time mother to be excitedly shared news of her joy in an exclusive with OK! Magazine.

Hayley Tamaddon has been the most vocal on social media in showing her excitement during her pregnancy. The 42-year old former Corrie and Dancing On Ice star has revealed her battles with infertility and how she was told she would never be able to conceive, with news of the pregnancy coming as a most pleasant surprise to her and her boyfriend, Alan. Julia Goulding, 34, was the last of the trio to announce her pregnancy, in May.

Now that it’s all over and done with, the sparks, the spats and the spellbinding magic of the island sun have all settled, here we take a look back at the characters and highlights that made the show’s fifth season the resounding success that this year’s Love Island proved to be, with a series average of 5.61 million viewers! This year, controversy was stoked early on with the untimely departure of Sherif from the villa, after a mere 9 days into the series, Sherif was booted off the show in what were quite mysterious circumstances at the time. Following that, with the nation glued to the screen, Amber Gill gradually rose to centre stage, eventually taking this year’s title as Queen of the Villa!
Having received 48.82% of the final vote, Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea were crowned winners and split the £50,000 cash prize. The couple reportedly spent the early period of their return to the outside together, enjoying their split winnings. Insisting that the couple are avoiding the “official” label, it has since emerged that Amber will be flying out to meet Greg’s parents. She has also received many offers, from starring in her first appearance on one of her favourite shows Loose Women on Wednesday the 14th of August, the former beautician has also landed a place on Dancing On Ice in 2020.
After an initial pairing with Callum, Amber pursued her next encounter with Anton Danyluk, on platonic bases, having admitted that both Tommy and Joe had caught her eye. Coupling with Michael at the next recoupling, sparks slowly emerged between the pair. What seemed to be a strong bond made the pair early favourites to win the show. However, Michael’s dabblings with new arrival Joanna Chimonides stirred the storm of Amber’s heartbreak. With only two weeks left to go, Greg entered as a bombshell, immediately taking Amber on a date in The Hideaway. The pair hit it off, stayed strong and the rest, as they say, is history!
