The couple are finally going to live together

Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan are ready to move in together.

The couple, both 27, were snapped outside Mark’s pad yesterday as his belongings were loaded into a removal van to be taken to his and Michelle’s new Essex abode.

Items being transported included a mattress – with a blue sheet still on it – and clothes.

Mark proposed to Michelle last September but they couldn’t set up home until she’d finished filming her role as Coronation Street‘s Tina McIntyre in Manchester.

Michelle wanted to be near London for acting roles and now her character’s been killed off she’s had more time to sort out relocating down south.

The stunning brunette is clearly very excited about the place she and Mark – who’ve set a wedding date for 2015 – have chosen to live in.

‘It’s gorgeous. We’re been searching for such a long time,’ Michelle recently told Fabulous.

‘We pulled out of two houses because we didn’t like one and then another was in the wrong area so it was panic, panic.

‘Then one day we were driving past this house, and as soon as we walked in we knew. It’s a new build. It’s my dream home.’
