Michelle Keegan ‘to be next Bond girl’ after Aaron Taylor&Johnson is offered 007 role, say bookies

COULD we see Michelle Keegan as the next ‘Bond Girl’?

We have previously seen the likes of Eva Green, Gemma Arterton, Halle Berry appear alongside the secret agent character on-screen.

A ‘Bond Girl’ has been previously defined as a character who could be either a love interest, female companion or even occasionally even an enemy of 007.

We previously revealed that Aaron Taylor-Johnson was formally offered the most coveted spy action role in film.

So it’s very possible that Barbara Broccoli and her team of producers could well be on the hunt for a perfect side-kick – or even enemy – for the Kick-Ass actor.

Although Killing Eve‘s Jodie Comer is currently the favourite with odds at 6/4, it seems she might face some serious competition.

Michelle Keegan‘s odds have been slashed from 5/2, as she now stands at 7/4 to land a coveted role in the next instalment of the hit spy franchise.

The former Coronation Street star has had a major career breakthrough across the globe.

She won critical acclaim for her role in Harlan Coben‘s latest Netflix drama, Fool Me Once.

Michelle starred alongside the likes of former Absolutely Fabulous star Joanna Lumley and Olivier Award nominee, Richard Armitage.

According to Entertainmemt Expert James Leyfield from, others could also well be in the mix.

Former Skins star Kaya Scodelario has caught much attention and has quickly risen up the ranks in movie land.

Her role as Susie Glass alongside the likes of Ray Winstone in Guy Ritchie‘s series, The Gentleman has seen her garner critical acclaim.

She’s also appeared in all three of movies in the hit The Maze Runner franchise after her role in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.

Other names said to be in the mix include Bridgerton‘s Phoebe Dynevor, The Crown star Meg Bellamy, and Sex Education sensation Emma Mackey.
