Michelle Keegan looks like she has some bad news to break to her scene co-star as she shoots her new show Brassic in Manchester.

The star had a solemn look on her face as she leant against the doorframe while Joe Gilgun, who plays boyfriend Vinnie, comes to see her at her house.

Brassic, which will air in 2019, focuses on Michelle’s character Erin making the decision to move away from the area for a new life – and Vinnie has to decide whether or not to join her.

From the looks of things, this could be one in a series of discussion the pair need to decide about whether to take their relationship forward.

Thankfully, it’s normally a lot more laughs on the set, and she has been seen giggling her head off ahead of lighter-hearted scenes as she larks around with her co-stars on set.

Joe and Michelle will be joined on set by Damien Molony, who plays Vinnie’s closest made Dylan, and who’s been inseparable from him since childhood.

How will he react to the idea of losing his best mate?

On top of the comedy-drama and complicated love mess, the show will also touch upon mental health issues in relationships.

When the show as announced, Joe revealed that he also has the condition, and hoped to portray that properly on screen.

‘Bipolar is a big part of my life,’ said Gilgun earlier in August. ‘We want to show that you can have mental health issues and in some cases live a productive, exciting life, full of adventure.’

‘Our writer Danny Brocklehurst and my friend David Quayle have been invaluable in taking this journey with me. Embrace who you are, decide what to be and go be it,’ he added.

Danny Brocklehurst also said: ‘This is a passion project for Joe and myself and we have collaborated every step of the way to create an outrageous, funny, stylistically bold show that brings to life a rarely seen northern working-class world.

‘This is a big-hearted show about life at the sharp end of modern Britain.’

Brassic will air in the new year on Sky One.
