What did Brassic star Michelle Keegan say about her diet?

Michelle told Ed Gamble and James Acaster’s Off Menu podcast: “I am a massive, massive foodie. Food for me is life.

“From the moment I wake up to the time I go to bed, I’m thinking about my food. The first thought for me when I wake up? Cup of tea. Biscuits!”

She says her diet habits are because of where she’s from.

Michelle said: “For us northerners, it’s tea and biscuits in the morning – you have like a Rich Tea or a custard cream.”

And it’s not just sweet treats Michelle loves.

She’s also thrown to diet book out of the window when it comes to savoury snacks too.

“It’s fantastic. It wakes my tastebuds up. Then I go for the savoury option. Always start with the sweet, then we go to the savoury.”

Michelle added: “I’m quite bad at snacking quite late at night, so I am actually quite full from the night before, if I’m being honest.

“A lot of the time that’s something quite salty like crisps or a piece of ham with toast.”

Actress Michelle said she also loves chip-shop chips, curry sauce and mayonnaise.

Earlier this year she told Women’s Health magazine’s going for goal podcast: ‘”f I want a cheeseboard one night, I’ll have it, without feeling guilty.”
