Having a relationship in the public eye must be tough enough without getting engaged, calling it off and then trying to convince everybody you’re still together.
As Michelle Keegan once again spoke out and claimed her and Max George are still very much in love – despite not being pictured together in months and calling off their engagement – her friend Brooke Vincent has admitted the Coronation Street star does find things tough sometimes.
Brooke, 20, exclusively told heatworld: “I think sometimes it does get to her, because as much as everyone wants to know what’s going on, that’s her relationship, her feelings and her thoughts, so I think it must do her head in.
“Michelle is a very strong person. She’s very clever – I’d be going mad if that was me. I hate the fact that people think they can get involved in your relationship. Because Max and Michelle got together in the public eye, people think they’re ok to talk about it or alright to comment on it, but you never know the truth."
Michelle Keegan: I want to get married and that's not happening soon
Michelle, 25, this week told Fabulous magazine the only reason her and Max, 23, had called off their engagement was because their schedules were too busy to organise an actual wedding.
"He's away in America most of the time now and we just had a word about it. I'm a traditionalist so if I'm engaged, I want to get married and that's not happening soon.
"I was getting asked by everyone: 'Have you set a date? Have you been shopping with your mum? Have you chosen your dress?' So we just thought that we'd just say we're not engaged and then nobody will ask and there's no pressure."
