Michelle Keegan managed to surprise her man

Michelle Keegan‘s surprise 27th birthday party for fianc√© Mark Wright last week was a big success.

‘I invited 35 of his closest friends for the bash at a private room in All Star Lanes in Manchester,’ Michelle, 26, tells us.

‘Everyone was sworn to secrecy and I think I managed to pull it off because Mark‘s face was a picture when he walked in the room and saw 35 people wearing Mark Wright masks and singing Happy Birthday!

‘My pals Rob Ellis and Nigel “Wingman” Clucas from Manchester’s 102 Capital FM Breakfast Show provided the entertainment.

‘They played club classics music and we all did a bit of karaoke, too.

‘We even had a “North vs Essex” bowling competition – the Essex lot won, but I’m sure they cheated!

‘Ricky Rayment was the best bowler on their team.
