It has been five years since Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan married in a beautiful ceremony which featured exclusively in HELLO!, and while the wedding looked flawless, Mark has revealed there was a last-minute drama when they were getting ready – which he even kept a secret from his bride.

Speaking on his Heart Radio show on Thursday evening, Mark revealed that Michelle's father lost his suit trousers just 30 minutes before he was due to walk her down the aisle.

Look back at Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan's love story

"On the wedding day right, my father-in-law is panicking about his speech. All I wanted was things to go smoothly for him. To make matters worse, Michelle’s step-father’s there as well, we’re getting on our suits, looking slick as you come, black tie, tuxedo," Mark explained.

"But I look around and my father-in-law Mike is sat there in just a shirt, bow tie and rainbow coloured boxers. They were horrendous by the way, Mike, if you’ve got them, please throw them away right now."
