An ex-Corrie star has paid a heartfelt tribute as production for a show filmed in Bolton recently wrapped.

Michelle Keegan, who is starring in new Netflix thriller Fool Me Once, took to social media to pay tribute to her fellow cast, crew and production team members, who she shared the space with over the last six months.

Based on the Harlan Coben novel of the same name, Fool Me Once follows Maya Stern (Keegan), who is trying to come to terms with the brutal murder of her husband, Joe (Richard Armitage).

But when Maya installs a nanny-cam to keep an eye on her young daughter, she is shocked to see a man she recognises in her house - her dead husband.

It also stars Adeel Akhtar and Joanna Lumley in the new eight-part thriller.

The show was spotted filming on Le Mans Crescent last week, with film crews being spotted at the rear entrance to the old Bolton Magistrates Court.

The latest in a long line of TV programmes and films to be shot on the famous crescent, The Bolton News were told that the filming was for Fool Me Once and that they would be shooting "in the cells".

Taking to Instagram, Mrs Keegan said: "That's a wrap on Fool Me Once, and a final goodbye to Maya. 😭 "Thank you to all the cast, crew and production team who made the past six months extra special. This was a once in a lifetime job for me and I never took it for granted, not once.

"What a ride it's been. ❤🎬 Can't WAIT for you all to see it."

Show creator Harlan Coben said: “I’m thrilled and honoured to once again be collaborating with my uber-talented partners Danny, Nicola and Richard. ‘Fool Me Once’ will be our fourth Netflix series [following ‘Safe,’ ‘The Stranger’ and ‘Stay Close’] together, and man, it never gets old!

“‘Fool Me Once’ is a pulse-pounder -- a shocking story of how secrets and deceit have the power to bring people together while simultaneously tearing them apart. I can’t wait to see how this dream cast brings these characters to life.” 

It is being produced Quay Street Productions, headed up by Nicola Shindler, who is behind hit productions, a number of which have been filmed in Bolton. 

​And it is the latest Harlan Coben adaptation to be filmed in Bolton, starring Armitage. The Stranger was also filmed in Bolton.

This is not the first time that Michelle Keegan shows have shot in Bolton. Brassic was also seen filming in the borough last year. 

She was also spotted filming in nearby Bacup for the show in 2018.
