She also had a small appearance in “Red Dwarf: Back to Earth” in 2009. Keegan made her radio debut in June 2009 when she co-hosted the BBC Radio 1 programme “The Official Chart with Reggie Yates.”

In April 2013, ITV announced that Keegan would be leaving “Coronation Street” in May 2014. She said, “I have had the most amazing six years at “Coronation Street” and it was such a difficult decision to leave. But I felt it was the right time for me to make the next step in my career.”

She was  joined in the Top 10 list by “Hollyoaks” babe Jorgie Porter, “30 Rock” actress Katrina Bowden, “Inbetweeners” star Emily Atack and “The Newsroom” star Olivia Munn.
