The Essex boy is happiest when he's with his wife-to-be

Mark Wright would rather be in Essex than anywhere else in the world.

The ex-TOWIE hunk, 26, told his Twitter followers yesterday that he’d been having fun working in London but couldn’t wait to return to his home county for the night.

‘Nice productive work day in our immense capital But now it’s home to the countryside the place that makes me smile most #noplacelikehome,’ Tweeted Mark.

But it seems there’s one thing that Mark loves even more than his birthplace – his fiancée Michelle Keegan.

When a follower pointed out that he’d surely be happy wherever stunning Coronation Street actress Michelle, 26, was, Mark couldn’t help but agree.

‘@MarkWright_ Lets be honest, any where you’ve got Michelle Keegan with you is gonna make you smile!’ Tweeted the fan.

Mark replied: ‘very true my friend.’
