The former Coronation Street actress made the comments in an interview with Digital Spy to promote her debut fashion collection with Lipsy.
“It’s weird. It’s strange. I used to [read the comments] when I was younger and get affected by them. That’s only natural starting off in the industry.
“I think as you progress and get older you start to learn that if they’re doing that, they’ve got no life. Slagging people off [who] they don’t know is not very nice.” – Keegan
Keegan bowed out from the ITV soap last month when her character Tina McIntyre was murdered by businessman Rob Donovan (Marc Baylis).
Michelle Keegan’s Lipsy collection will be available online at Lipsy.co.uk and across all UK Lipsy stores from July, 3.
