Mark Wright isn’t the only proud bloke rooting for Michelle Keegan…

Our Girl went out with a bang on Wednesday evening – leaving viewers with mixed emotions over the ending but undoubtedly gagging for more. Luckily it’s since been confirmed Michelle Keegan will return as Corporal Georgie Lane next year… making the MEN in her life very happy.

Because it’s not just 29-year-old Michelle’s husband Mark Wright who has been gushing about her on social media: the former Coronation Street star’s dad Mike Keegan has basically turned his Twitter into a shrine for his beautiful daughter – and it’s so cute!

Michelle's dad is SO cute!

Mike’s cover photo is a promo shot for Our Girl and his profile snap shows him cuddling up to Michelle on the red carpet at a BBC event. Serious father/daughter goals right there!


Following the dramatic final of the BBC One drama, Mike took to Twitter to repost all of the nice comments flooding in for Michelle, and added his own. He wrote: ‘Well all good things come to an end! #OurGirl However the best is yet to come!! @michkeegan.’

An earlier message from the proud dad read: ‘#OurGirl just brilliant again. @michkeegan never ceases to amaze me. #MyGirl.’


Former TOWIE star Mark, 29, had a bit of a reputation when he first got with Michelle and, understandably, Mike was a bit apprehensive. But Mark previously admitted his father-in-law keeps him in check.

He said: ‘I get on with her family so well, and her dad keeps me in place. At first he wouldn’t let loose until he got to know me. Now he likes me and we play badminton and golf together.’
