A source said: "Michelle works incredibly hard and the rewards have come in for her.

"It was a massive decision for her to leave Britain’s most popular show but she knew that she could make far more cash away from the Street – and she has been proved correct.

"She had to turn down a number of lucrative deals while she was on Corrie because soap stars aren’t allowed to advertise.

"Now she is free to plug what she wants – and she is getting some good acting work, too."

Let’s look at what Michelle, 30, is bringing in. She’s paid around a quarter of a million quid to promote the Lipsy clothing range, and she also pulls in £150k for Garnier’s Ambre Solaire self-tanning range.
