Long distance relationships are hard and poor Michelle Keegan is feeling the pain.

The actress is currently filming the next series of Our Girl in South Africa and while her huband Mark Wright has been visiting her on set, she's still missing being at home. The former Coronation Street star took part in a Facebook Live chat for beauty brand Revlon and revealed all to fans.

When asked what the hardest part of her job is, she replied: "Sleep deprivation, I’m only joking, well, I’m not, I’m shattered. To be fair, the hardest part is probably not seeing my family and friends for the time that I’m away filming. Although we FaceTime all the time, I’m in a lucky position I know that, but you miss home a little bit.'

And proving she's a girl after our own hearts, Michelle also admitted that she's looking forward to a cosy duvet day when she gets back to the UK. She said: 'I haven’t had one of those for a while. I’ll be honest my favourite thing to do is get up in the morning, have a shower, get back in clean pyjamas, fresh ones, go downstairs with my dogs and just have a DVD day and watch films all day and order takeaway. I’m not very rock and roll, am I?' Sounds like the ultimate dream day to us Michelle.

But with Mark Wright's career potentially taking off in the states, it looks like these two beaus will be long distance lovers for a while yet.
