She's known to enjoy her nights on the town.

But when Michelle Keegan thought she'd have a gulp of (perfectly legal) 'hippy crack'- aka nitrous oxide- she probably didn't anticipate the stir she'd cause.

The 25-year-old was pictured inhaling the gas at London's Anya nightclub last week.

Took it lightheartedly: Michelle Keegan tweeted this snap of herself holding The People today writing 'Oh hell... Apparently I'm a 'crack addict' Hahahaha!! Yeah... Ok!'

And today the star jokingly tweeted a snap of herself holding a copy of The People, which had run the story 'Corrie star on 'hippy crack'.

Michelle captioned her photo: 'Oh hell… Apparently I'm a 'crack addict' Hahahaha!! Yeah… Ok!'

She had been inhaling the legal high as part of her birthday celebrations with some girlfriends last Saturday night.

Michelle must have had a fun time explaining the incident to her parents, and she tweeted later on: 'hahaha!!! I can't look my family in the eye!! Haha. Xx ''

The soap star recently opened up about why she and The Wanted's Max George called off their engagement.

She
told Fabulous Magazine: 'We're not engaged any more, but not because we
fell out or there was an argument. It was just there was no chance of
us getting married any time soon because of our schedules.'

'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.'

Michelle
went on to explain that she is still very much in love with Max, and
chatted about how they enjoy spending time together doing 'normal'
things, like getting a takeaway or going to the pub.

The actress hasn't let the change in her relationship status get her down, and was seen enjoying a girls' night out in Mayfair last week.

Time to celebrate: Michelle was bridesmaid to her step sister Nichola Corfield who married in Worsley, Manchester on Saturday

She and her friends then recorded a video of themselves singing Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen as they sat in their train on the way back to Manchester the next day.

Michelle then posted the video on YouTube and wrote: 'Haha Check out me @littlepintsize @hmonners @fearnyx entertaining ourselves on the train! #undercovergeeks #notscared.'

Meanwhile Max, who has spent quite a lot of time away from his actress girlfriend due to work commitments – has seemed pretty adamant that the couple are happy despite calling off their engagement in April.
