Max has been dating the Coronation Street babe, who plays Tina McIntyre in the soap, since December, and has already struck up a great relationship with her family.
'Michelle's parents are really good people,' says Max, 22.
'They're top, in fact, which is a bonus.
'And what's better is that Michelle's told me that they like me, too.
'That's always a good start to a relationship!'
Max says rumours Michelle, 23, asked him to cool things because he was becoming 'too clingy' are rubbish.
'A lot of people have been phoning our friends recently asking them shit,' he reveals. 'But she hasn't told me to back off.
'We always say to each other that we like to keep our relationship between us.'
