The couple love being in each other's company

Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright don’t need to go on fancy dates.

The smitten pair – who got engaged last month – are just happy being in each other’s company and enjoy nothing more than low-key outings together.

‘We get excited just to go to [shopping centre] the Trafford Centre to go for dinner together, go and see our family or friends or watch a movie, little things like that,’ says Michelle.

‘We can be doing nothing at all, but absolutely love it. We can be in an empty room but love it, just being with each other. I think that is real love.’

Ex-TOWIE hunk Mark, 26, popped the question to Coronation Street actress Michelle, 26, on a beach in Dubai and they’re hoping to get hitched in 2015.

They’re already very settled into life as a couple.

‘What we really love and what makes us happy is shutting the door, putting our scruffs on and watching a DVD,’ Mark tells Hello!

‘I’m a massive joker. It’s just continuous banter, but she loves it as well. It sounds so clichéd and cheesy, but we are so similar and we like everything the same.’
