After a stressful few days, a night out was exactly what the doctor ordered.

Michelle Keegan hit the town in Manchester last night looking ready to leave all her worries behind her in a stunning bodycon bandage dress.

And to judge from the Coronation Street star's Twitter page, she left no holds barred during the night's festivities.

Fun night out: Michelle Keegan enjoyed an evening out in Manchester last night after what turned out to be a stressful weekend

The actress tweeted this morning: '.... Oh my god! Not even funny!! Wow! 1st n last I tell ya! X'

Accompanied by a friend, the long-legged star looked cheerful and very well groomed as she hit the town, ready for a fun night.

Her long dark hair was complemented by gold chandelier earrings, and she accessorised her dress with a pair of matching leg-lengthening nude heels.

The star was in need of unwinding following claims that she had a vicious outburst when a fan had tried to flirt with her boyfriend, Max George from The Wanted, during the V Festival.

Worse for wear? Though Michelle claimed she felt terrible this morning, she certainly started her night looking groomed to the nines

According to a Sunday newspaper, Michelle reduced a young fan to tears by accusing her of flirting with her Max.

The source said: 'Michelle stormed off and Max went off after her. She was fuming.'

It seemed as if the fight caused a 'real scene', but Max followed the crying girl to make sure she was ok.

However when the story broke in the paper yesterday the 'crying girl' in question took to Twitter to deny claims that Michelle had mistreated her.

Chloe Hannah, 18, tweeted Michelle: 'hi its chloe my mum wants to sue the newspaper obv id been hit the face so i was bound to cry i no the truth xxx

The actress replied: '.... @ChlloeeRockstar hahaha! Hi darlin can't believe you've been dragged into this c**p, at least we know EXACTLY went on! xxxxx'

Clearly thrilled to have received a reply, Chloe wrote back: 'yeah haha i had a great time thankyou! and thankyou for helping me aswell you both cheered me riight up xxxxxxx'

The pair certainly didn't appear to bear grudges, and were united in their account of a much more amicable exchange at V festival.

It appears that Michelle had simply cheered Chloe up when she saw that she was upset.

'oh YES u were standing outside the doors near the stage n we were telling u to go back out n not let it ruin ur night!,' she replied to the fan.
