MICHELLE’S footballer boyfriend has landed an acting role in Shameless – as a gay player.
Brad Howard, 22, who has been a defender for semi-pro side FC United of Manchester, will appear in a “typical” storyline involving the dysfunctional Gallagher clan.
He will feature in a plot about the team from the show’s pub The Jockey and a league match.
Brad, who has been dating Corrie star Michelle for two years and also works as a club promoter and model, is hoping more higherprofile acting roles may follow.
An insider said: “He is delighted and feels very lucky to have won the part.”
