Mark is smitten with his wife-to-be

Mark Wright is completely in awe of his fiancée Michelle Keegan.

The ex-TOWIE hunk, 27, told his Twitter followers yesterday that he still can’t believe he’s marrying Coronation Street actress Michelle, 26.

‘Having the privilege of saying “goodnight I love you” to the most special girl in the world every night makes me feel so lucky. #smiling,’ Tweeted Mark.

Mark has said that he knew Michelle was ‘The One’ the minute he met her in Dubai over New Year’s 2013 and the Essex boy got down on one knee last September.

But Mark is often apart from his wife-to-be while she films her Corrie scenes in Manchester.

Yesterday, Mark took his mind off Michelle by hooking up with football pundit Chris Kamara in Mill Hill, London to promote Strongbow‘s new EARN IT challenge.

The scheme will see Mark co-manage a team of amateur British men for a match against one of Brazil’s best professional female football teams in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

‘Playing football in Brazil with your mates, it’s every guys dream isn’t it? That’s why I’m absolutely delighted to be helping make that dream a reality for five mates this summer,’ says Mark.

‘The standard of women’s football in Brazil is phenomenal, but alongside Kammy I think we can give our guys the best possible chance for success.’
