The couple indulge in some Turkish cuisine

Mark Wright and his fiancée Michelle Keegan clearly love their food.

The couple, both 26, ventured to Essex restaurant Sheesh for a Turkish-inspired dinner on Saturday night, where they bumped into EastEnders star Gary Lucy.

‘Lovely meal @sheeshchigwell didnt realise I had a relative in @MarkWright_ no wonder he’s a good looking f*cker 🙂 nice 2 c u2 @michkeegan,’ joked Gary, 32.

Mark replied: ‘Hahaha nice to see ya @Gary_Lucy @SheeshChigwell @michkeegan #bigcuz haha.’

Ex-TOWIE hunk Mark is obviously a big fan of Turkish cuisine as he told his Twitter fans last week that he’d taken a trip to West Bromwich eatery Kebub for a kebab.

He revealed yesterday that he reckons Sheesh is the ‘best gaff ever’.

Hopefully eating there will have cheered up Coronation Street actress Michelle, who’s been feeling a bit down since the festive period came to an end.

‘I miss Christmas! #jansjustgrim,’ she Tweeted at the weekend.

Michelle Keegan is shortlisted in this year’s NTA Serial Drama Performance category. To vote for Michelle go to www.nationaltvawards.com
