FORMER Wigan Warriors player Mark Flanagan has dismissed rumours he is dating Coronation Street beauty Michelle Keegan.

The rugby star, who played against his old team last night with Saints, was reported to have been sharing flirty texts with the actress as they plan a secret date.

But speaking on a local radio station the 24-year-old denied that he had ever even met her and joked that he should be so lucky.

Michelle split with Max George, of The Wanted, earlier this year.
