It's been 17 months since Michelle Keegan and Mark Wright were married in St Mary's Church in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk on 24 May. And this week the Our Girl star reminisced about the romantic moment her husband popped the question.
"It was all planned," the 29-year-old revealed during an appearance on The Jonathan Ross Show, which airs on Friday. "It was when we were in Dubai when we were on holiday and it was four days into the holiday, so I had no idea.

Michelle Keegan has revealed details of Mark Wright's proposal in September 2013
"He did it on the beach, and there was a table set out with a waiter and candles," Michelle recalled. "When we first started speaking actually, I did say that one day I'd like to get proposed to in a white dress and all that, the fairytale.
"He told me a story that on the beach there was going to be a white party, so I got a white dress, didn't think anything of it because it was two years down the line. But he had it all planned out, so I wore the white dress, I was on the beach, it was very romantic!"
Loved-up Michelle and Mark are now enjoying the early stages of married life – but having a high-profile relationship isn't without its difficulties.
The star has revealed that coping with public scrutiny of her marriage was one of the things that helped her bond with Bobby Moore's wife Tina, who she plays in upcoming ITV drama, Tina and Bobby.

"I met her at the read-through and she came on set too for a day," Michelle told Jonathan. "Don't get me wrong, it's very intimidating because you want to do it well for them and you want to do the story justice, but she was lovely. She's so warm and welcoming, she was a really nice lady."
Talking about how her relationship with Mark mirrors Bobby and Tina's, the star added: "I could relate to the story and the reason why Tina found it hard."
