Michelle was one of 15 bridesmaids Jessica asked, and she looked emotional as she read the poem on the doorstep of her Essex home. The 33-year-old stood barefoot in her dressing gown in the clip shared by Jessica, where she told her sister-in-law she was "shaking", and wanted nothing more than to give her a hug.

"I'm on my way to deliver my bridesmaids a poem and a balloon flower to ask them to be my bridesmaid because I can't get them all together to ask them," she explained. "Originally my plan was to do a big dinner and have everyone there and surprise them with these flowers as their place setting."
Other bridesmaids are set to include Mark and Jessica's younger sister Natalya, their sister-in-law Hollie Kane, and other close friends and cousins.

Jessica announced her engagement to William Lee-Kemp in an exclusive interview with HELLO! in February, and has since shared further details about their wedding plans, which will see her brother Mark act as master of ceremonies.
In the interview, Jess said that the wedding - which HELLO! reveals will happen in June next year – is set to take place in Majorca. "We've enjoyed some amazing holidays here and I practically grew up on the island because it's where my family has a second home," Will told the magazine.
