Michelle Keegan laughs off Max George fan kiss
Michelle, 25, told a friend: "I don't mind.
"When you go out with someone in one of the biggest boybands in Britain you have to expect this sort of thing.
"It happens all the time, even when I’m with him. Women just rush up and kiss him. I’m relaxed about it. Blokes do it to me too. It comes with the job."
Max was snapped in an embrace with an unidentified blonde on a night out after headlining the Mouth Of The Tyne festival.
The person who took the photo told The Sun newspaper: "It wasn't a quick peck on the cheek - they were going at it for a good couple of minutes.
"It was a proper snog. No one could believe how open he was about it."
But a spokesman for Max, 24, has insisted he was pounced on by an admirer.
He said: "The Wanted have an incredibly passionate fan base. At times the fans can be over-eager when they meet them, especially in a club or bar environment.
"In this case Max was approached and got slightly more than he bargained for."
