Michelle says her house is 'amazing'

Michelle Keegan has no regrets about her decision to move from Manchester to Essex to live with her fiancé Mark Wright.

The couple, both 27, moved into their new pad last week and Michelle – who was snapped shopping for homeware with Mark at the weekend – is loving decorating the place.

‘My new home is amazing and I am very, very happy getting things organised and choosing fixtures and fittings for our first home together,’ Michelle writes in her Hello! column.

‘Everyone keeps asking me will I miss my family and friends, but they are all organising to come down and stay, so I really do think I will actually see more of them!’

Ex-Coronation Street actress Michelle has already become close to Mark’s loved ones – which is just as well as he comes from a very tight-knit family.

Mark’s dad Big Mark shared some hilarious stills from old home videos on his Twitter page at the weekend that showed Mark with questionable hair as a teen.

In one shot, a shaven-headed Mark cuddles his baby sister Natalya, now 13, while another sees him at a function with a spiky fringe.

‘Who’s this plum,’ Big Mark captioned the image.

Mark’s sister Jess and cousin Elliott also feature in the funny throwback pictures.
