Mark thinks Michelle Keegan is 'truly talented'

Mark Wright is in awe of his fiancée Michelle Keegan‘s acting skills.

The ex-TOWIE hunk, 27, was in Manchester to see Michelle, 26, film her character Tina McIntyre‘s exit from Coronation Street yesterday and thought her work was amazing.

‘Watching my baby @michkeegan shoot her final scenes tonight. So proud, such a truly talented girl. #smiling #proud #love,’ Tweeted Mark.

Michelle announced that she was leaving Corrie in April 2013 to ‘make the next step in her career’ and barmaid Tina is set to be killed off next month.

The popular star – who’s nominated for two gongs at this year’s British Soap Awards – has left both fans and colleagues pretty upset by choosing to quit the cobbles.

‘makes me sad thinking about it gonna miss my little friend loads!!’ Tweeted Tisha Merry last night, who plays Steph Britton.

A Michelle devotee wrote: ‘So sad that Tina is leaving Corrie :(. Favorite character! #TinaMcIntyre #coronationstreet.’
