A smitten Mark proposed in September 2013.

Wanting to move in with Mark Wright, Michelle Keegan relocated to Essex from her home city of Manchester in 2014.

Mark appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in late 2014 and progressed right through to the final.

There was further happiness for Mark in May 2015 when he married Michelle in Bury St Edmunds.
