Twitter users who follow Michelle Keegan were treated to quite the surprise when a photo seemingly showing the British soap opera actress’s bare breasts was posted to her Instagram account. It was deleted after only six seconds, but it was reposted enough that Keegan has had to come to her own defense and explain that it was just a prank.
Keegan blames friend Hayley Moynihan for gaining access to her Instagram and posting the inappropriate picture, which can be seen at The Sun (warning: the image is uncensored). “Her friend got her passwords,” Keegan’s agent tells the outlet.
The confusion about whether the picture was real or fake came because Keegan had just posted an image of herself taking a bubble bath. The breasts picture was also taken in a bath, though with noticeably fewer bubbles.
Keegan has taken the entire incident in stride, tweeting at Moynihan, “Phahahahahahahahaha @hmonners I’m gonna absolutely KILL u!!!! I’m CHANGING MY PASSWORD!! #touch� u gave as good a u got! ;)” She later added, “Twitters going crazy! … Sorry to disappoint guys, but they’re not mine! Hahahahahaha!!!!! #Brilliant x”
When a fan tweeted, “It would be the finest day on earth when @michkeegan posts her t*ts on Instagram #worldy,” she responded, “maybe one day!!! ;)) hahaha! Xx”
