Michelle Keegan started dating Max George in 2010

Michelle Keegan isn't worried about a recent photograph of her boyfriend Max George appearing to kiss a mystery blonde.

The Wanted star has explained that the girl was just a fan who'd got a little too close.

'When you go out with someone in one of the biggest boy bands in Britain you have to expect this sort of thing,' Coronation Street actress Michelle, 25, is said to have told a pal, reports The Sun.

'It happens all the time, even when I'm with him. Women just rush up and kiss him.

'I'm relaxed about it. Blokes do it to me too. It comes with the job.'

Max was partying at Newcastle's Powerhouse bar when an onlooker snapped the photo of him and the blonde on Saturday night.

The Wanted had headlined The Mouth Of The Tyne festival earlier that day and the 23-year-old hunk had told his Twitter followers how much he was looking forward to a night out in the city.

'Newcastle rocked!! Now for the toon!!!,' he Tweeted.
