Michelle Keegan had confessed she has given up Dry January just eight days into the month-long challenge.

Former Our Girl actress, 33, made the candid admission on her Instagram page, capturing the mood of many up and down the UK amid the lockdown restrictions.

Michelle, who’s dream home has reportedly been put on hold, shared a photo of Rachel Green from Friends pouring the last dribble of white wine from a bottle into her glass.

As Michelle posted the snapshot of the scene from the hit comedy series, Mark Wright’s wife admitted she has already given up on Dry January, which is a challenge to go alcohol-free for a month.

The actress posted the photo on her Instagram story and wrote underneath: “Me… 8 days into ‘Dry January’”.

Michelle Keegan isn’t the only celebrity to have decided against taking part in Dry January or Veganuary, which sees people undertake a vegan diet for a month.

Shortly after Boris Johnson announced the third lockdown, Piers Morgan tweeted: “If you're still planning to do #Veganuary or #DryJanuary after that announcement, see a doctor.”

It comes after Michelle, who flaunted her legs in a leopard print dress, opened up on her relationship with her husband Mark Wright, 33.


Speaking to Women’s Health, Michelle said she felt she was treated differently to her husband and very rarely posts snaps with him on social media.

Michelle revealed: “I very rarely post [pictures and videos] of me and Mark together, so it’s not there for everyone to comment on, like, ‘Oooh, look at their body language’.

“And that’s why on social media I stepped back – I don’t want to feed [the stories] any more. I’ve become more confident in my thirties and I’m just not doing it.”

She also explained how she feels she is treated differently to her former The Only Way Is Essex star husband, whom she married in 2015.

The actress said: “I do think it’s different for a woman.

“It shouldn’t be, but it is. I get asked about children whereas Mark wouldn’t, for example. Why haven’t I had a child? When am I going to have a child?

“I don’t know what they want me to say. I don’t know what the right or wrong answer is.”

Mark, who’s parents recently tested positive for coronavirus, and Michelle have spent more time together after years of a long distance relationship as they in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic.

Last year, Mark gushed over spending time with Michelle as he said: “After years of having a long-distance relationship, I'm now locked up with the girl of my dreams.

“We used to spend all our time on FaceTime calls and talking for hours on the phone in different time zones, but now we are together every minute of the day.

“It's nice to just sit together in the evening in front of the TV without having to worry about rushing off.

“That time is important as a couple — just being together. We've been cooking together a lot and Michelle is a cracking chef.

“She has made a lot of delicious banana bread and lets me be her sous chef, so I help out.

“I really think this period is going to make everyone more grateful for the amazing friends and family they have.”
