Michelle Keegan doesn't mind long-distance love

Michelle Keegan insists it's "not that bad" being away from Mark Wright.

The couple have been married for less than year but have been spending long periods apart because of their work commitments, but the 28-year-old beauty - who is filming military drama 'Our Girl' in South Africa - says she and her spouse are determined to make things "work".

She said: "It's not that bad being away for so long.

"When Mark was filming recently, he was away for three weeks at a time, then came back for five days and was off again for three weeks.

"I think it just comes with the job. As long as we're happy that's all that matters. We'll make it work."

The former 'Coronation Street' star doesn't mind getting recognised when she's out and about but she hates being treated "differently" because of her fame.

She told Closer magazine: "I don't mind when people stare or do a double take because I do it too - as long as people are polite. The only thing I don't like about being famous is when people start to treat you differently. People presume because you're in the public eye, you change.

"I remember going to a pub near my old house in Manchester where I used to work as a barmaid before 'Corrie', My dad and grandad still go there and I grew up with a lot of the punters and used to serve them drinks - now they don't know what to say."
