Queen St; SCHOOLGIRL PICTURE GETS CORRIE KEV NEW MALE FANS.
MACHO Corrie star Michael Le Vell has gone all pink with embarrassment - after becoming a gay icon.
The married star, who plays beer-loving grease monkey Kevin Webster, acquired his new fans after dressing as a schoolgirl for an ITV sketch.
A picture of Michael, 39, in a blonde wig with coloured bows, lipstick and short skirt with bare legs appeared in the Mirror on March 19. He was taking a break after appearing with other Street stars in a remake of the famous video of Queen hit I Want To Break Free, shown on Saturday in a tribute to the band.
But he began to receive stacks of letters from gays - who assumed he was a bisexual cross-dresser.
A Coronation Street source said: "Michael sees himself as a man's man and is a bit shocked."
