Michelle Keegan wraps up warm in white padded jacket

She’s been out and about filming in the freezing cold over the last few weeks ahead of the third series of Brassic.   

And Michelle Keegan looked as busy as ever shooting action-packed scenes for the show in Yorkshire on Wednesday. 

The actress, 33, who plays the single mother Erin Croft, wrapped up warm as she got to work driving around in a red and blue van on the set of the Sky One show.

Costume designers had dressed the former Coronation Street star in a white padded jacket, grey cuffed trousers and black combat boots.

Michelle wore her hair in a much-loved half-up-half-down style with the ends lightly curled as she sat in the passenger seat of the vehicle while her co star Joe Gilgun  drove around.

Michelle sported neutral toned make-up that accentuated her naturally radiant beauty while walking around between takes, shielded from the rain by an umbrella.

She’s been regularly spotted donning the cosy garment to keep off the Northern chill in between takes. 

Like many other shows, Brassic’s filming schedule was slightly derailed by the coronavirus pandemic.  

Michelle was forced to stop filming the third series of the show last year, in order to isolate, after she was exposed to COVID-19.

But, luckily, the actress didn’t actually contract the potentially deadly virus.

A source told MailOnline at the time: ‘Michelle had to take time away from the Brassic set and has once again been laying low in Essex with her husband Mark Wright.’  

Mark Wright told Hello! magazine he feels ‘forever grateful’ that he has Michelle in his life, after seeing members of his family hit by the virus.

‘I’ve learnt what is most important in life, how important health is, how important family is. That is the number one happiness, the love around you,’ he said. 

‘I am just grateful that I get to have her [Michelle] by my side every day, to have someone I can share my life with. 

‘To be with Michelle during these times has been incredible, and I’m forever grateful for that.’

But, like a true professional, Michelle was back to work in no time. 

The Brassic insider said: ‘She only missed one day of filming. But she needed to isolate after she came into contact with someone in Manchester who had it.

‘Luckily it all happened very quickly and Michelle did not return to the Brassic set before isolating. So it didn’t affect filming too much.’  

‘She has spent last two weeks in total isolation. She will go back to filming at the end of this week,’ they said at the time.
