Michelle Keegan looked glum as she was pictured shooting emotional scenes for the upcoming season of the Sky comedy Brassic on Wednesday.

The former Coronation Street actress, 36, braved the rain in a green khaki coat while shedding a tear as a hearse drove past on set.

The Brassic star, who plays a single mum Erin Croft in the show, looked downcast in her character during filming.

Michelle’s costume of the day consisted of flare orange trousers, a cropped jacket and black biker boots.

In other snaps, Michelle slipped on an oversized green padded coat and held onto a hot water bottle in between filming.

Season six of the show is due to be released next year after Michelle teased the information.

Michelle recently hinted that Erin will get into some sort of trouble with a petrol can – which she and Carol (Bronagh Gallagher) will use to top up an elderly couple’s car. 

The series follows Vinnie O’Neill (Joseph Gilgun) and his five friends, including Michelle’s single mum character Erin. 

The comedy follows the group as they struggle to get by in the fictional town of Hawley, and often resort to petty crime for money.

When Dylan’s girlfriend Erin (Michelle) wants out to start afresh in a new town, Dylan (Damien Molony) is torn between following her or staying with the pals he thinks of as brothers.

The BAFTA-nominated series began back in 2019, as season four of the show was released last August on Sky Max and Now TV.

It comes after Brassic star Neil Ashton revealed he asked co-star Michelle to invite her husband Mark Wright on the comedy show.

In an interview with The Mirror, Neil said he’s going to ask Michelle about getting Mark involved with a cameo, but fears he might be ‘too handsome’.

He said: ‘Michelle is one of the loveliest people. And Mark as well, they are so good together, those two. They have really lovely chemistry. 

‘I’ve known Michelle a lot longer, so when you hear about someone you always hope they’re going to be nice. Has he ever had a cameo? I don’t know, I’ll message Michelle and ask her. He’s too handsome though – far too good looking.’

Michelle and Mark have been married since 2015.  

Brassic is reportedly set ‘to be axed after the next series’ as the cast wish to moved on from the Sky comedy to work on other projects.

The show has just released its fifth season, with a special then coming in December.

But a new report has revealed the show could be ‘unlikely’ to return after next year as the producers work on a sixth and final instalment.

A Sky insider told The Mirror: ‘Brassic is very unlikely to return after next year’s sixth series. It’s had incredible success, but the feeling among some of the cast is that it’s time to move on.

‘Ryan was considering leaving after series five, but was per­­suaded to continue by the bosses at Sky.

‘Michelle is also finding it harder to work her schedule around filming as she’s in demand for so many projects.’

A Sky spokesperson has denied that the show will end after series six however, telling MailOnline: ‘Brassic has not been cancelled. The show remains one of Sky’s best performing original comedies. With a highly successful series five launch just last week, it is a firm favourite with our customers.

‘A growing number of them continue to discover this award-winning series on demand and as it airs on Sky Max, Thursdays 10pm.’
