As our gallery shows, they first meet at a soap awards ceremony in 2011 and get to know each other better when they both appear on The Xtra Factor later that year.

The TV stars go on holiday to Dubai to celebrate New Year’s Eve and by May 2013, they are an item. After an appearance together at the British Soap Awards, the duo head off for a romantic trip to Spain.

Mark and Michelle’s close bond is evident as they get to know each other’s friends and families over that summer.

By September, it’s clear that the lovers are truly smitten. They break the news that they are set to become husband and wife on Twitter.

‘THANKYOU for all the lovely messages, and yes it’s true @markwright_ and I are engaged !! We are so SO happy ūüôā xxx,’ Tweets Michelle Keegan following Mark’s proposal in Dubai.

Mark writes: ‘Thankyou to everyone for your messages about our engagement. It means so much.’

In July 2014, Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan move into a new house in Essex.

After revealing very little about their upcoming wedding so far, in October 2014 it’s reported that Mark and his stunning wife-to-be have found a venue in Norfolk, but Mark hits Twitter to dismiss the claims.

The couple eventually tie the knot in May 2015 in a lavish ceremony held at St Mary’s Church in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.

‘It was the day our dreams came true,’ they later reveal.

After an exotic honeymoon the lovebirds settle into married life together and continue to focus on their careers.

Michelle and Mark visit America together in the summer of 2015 and attend various work meetings –¬†but remain settled in their Essex home.

Michelle has huge success as her debut in the BBC Drama Our Girl is released and Mark praises her. Taking to Twitter he wrote: ‘This one @michkeegan astounds me more every day‚Ķ. Truly sensational performance.’

The pair become victim to split rumours in Autumn 2016, but they laugh them off saying they are happy and Michelle even hints she is broody for kids.
