Michelle Keegan has launched her Spring/Summer 2017 collection for Lipsy London.

The 29-year-old actress - who joined forces with the fashion house in 2014 - has unveiled her latest capsule for the label, and the brunette beauty has revealed she wanted to move her designs ''a step forward'' from her Autumn/Winter 2016 range.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz about her new fashion range, she said: ''Summer [collection] we are trying to move it a step forward now, we've been at Christmas we've gone through all the dark colours, so now we're going through the Spring collection.''

The former 'Coronation Street' star - who is known for her role as Tina McIntyre in the longstanding soap - has revealed the garments will still include forest green shades, which she incorporated in her Autumn/Winter range, but she has also infused her creations with ''a bit of blush pink'' and embroidery detailing.

She explained: ''So we've infused a bit of blush pink in this collection, and embroidery is a massive trend this year, well this season, so we've got a lot of embroidery, and we've stuck with the forest greens as well because I know that's going to be massive.''

And the star - who is married to former 'The Only Way is Essex' television personality Mark Wright - has revealed she has focused largely on embroidery in this collection and ''oriental embroidery'' in particular so her designs are on trend.

She continued: ''Embroidery is going to be massive, especially oriental embroidery.''

And Michelle has admitted she has sourced the help of researchers who have jetted across the globe to seek out the forthcoming fashion forecast for the season.

She said: ''We've got researchers who go to China and they go to LA and New York to see what's going to be the next trends and bringing it over to us.''
