Michelle Keegan enjoyed a Barbadian experience in central Manchester on Friday, complete with idyllic palm tree beaches and the sound of calypso steel drums.
3D street artists Joe and Max created an interactive illusion giving the impression of a tunnel leading from Manchester straight to the Caribbean island.
“Wow – I feel as if I could just jump through the tunnel straight to that beautiful beach,” beamed Michelle. “I love Barbados, it’s amazing to be able to enjoy a slice of the island’s charm eight on my doorstep! I’ve visited Barbados before and look forward to returning one day.”
The stunning brunette wowed in a chic red dress as she basked in the sun, enjoying a rum punch.
The ‘tunnel’ was created by Virgin Holidays, who provided locals with tips, advice and knowledge about the island.
